    May is the time I like going. Hot enough for me and doubt we could handle the heat between June and August.

    For most people, probably April or October. Usually in the 80s and very comfortable. I don't mind it above 100, but most do.

    Good Luck!

    Found this website which claims to post Vegas crowd size through the calendar year, which is one of my main criteria.
    http://www.isitpacked.com/crowd-calendars/las-vegas/

    The main takeaway is most of the slack time is during the extreme heat of July and August. Heat doesn't bother me as I stay Downtown and never need to be outside more than five minutes at a time. Cold, rain, or extreme winds puts a downer on me. So do conventions, so I always check with http://www.lasvegastourism.com. I went out to meet a buddy in late January and spent time with the 60,000 World of Concrete conventioneers.

    I also hate that every holiday has become a Vegas Holiday. And you also better know NFL Sundays, March Madness, and the National Finals rodeo. Besides, it's a dry heat.

    I liked March and October.

    Summer didn't bother me because I live in Houston and this high humidity heat is worse than the easy bake oven dry heat in Vegas.

    The cool nights and mornings of March and October appeal to me. If I can wear shorts and a windbreaker or long sleeve shirt I'm in my comfort zone.

    I like Mar/April and Sep/Oct. We used to love going the first weekend of May for our anniversary but rates became too high. Since Dan doesn't join me in Vegas anymore, March and April work better for me. Gets me out of the cold and damp of winter. :) Too bad nothing is on the calendar for this year though. :cry:

    I like going in the winter months, from November to February. I'm from Hawaii and I enjoy the cold weather, something we don't have so for me it's special.

    I also like to go in the summer months, but not because of the weather, which is way too hot, but because you can get really cheap travel fares. On these trips I usually go solo and just gamble away in the casino and hardly go outside.

    I like going during the week before Christmas, because rooms are cheaper then, and Vegas isn't as insanely hot.

    I go in April/May and November. While school is in session.( Although there sure seem to be a whole lotta kids around even then!) Weather is kinder, mostly. I narrow it down based on airline and hotel rates. So far have not gone based on an artist, did look at Elton John dates....

    I always go in the summer because that's when I have vacation time. The heat isn't so bad when you spend your time outdoors in the Caesars pool. Those fountains feel nice.

    I have been in February, April, May, July, August, September and October. I don't mind the heat and like to have some pool time. But I think September has been my favorite month. Trying June for our next trip. :wiggle:
