Christmas Vegas Virgins

Christmas Vegas Virgins

Hi everyone. We (my husband and myself) are going to Vegas for Christmas this year. I’ve been trying to read up on the weather and things to do in the winter time but not much luck. So I figured I’d post here and see what others recommend or suggest. This will be our first time in Vegasand unfamiliar with the dry cold. Any recommendations or advice on clothing, food, shows, entertainment, etc... it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Ive been researching attractions and shows to see but unfortunately some don’t show times past October or early November so it’s kinda hard to see what will be available when we actually go. Also, obviously depending on the weather but are most pools still open in December?

Daytime can be quite pleasant. The sun is usually shining and you can happily walk around in a t-shirt. But, as soon as the sun sets it will be freezing so if you are going outside you will want to wrap up warm. But inside the casinos the heating will be on so it is difficult to decide what to wear. Are you going to be inside the casinos all night or out walking the strip?

No pools are not open in December. We are from Chicago area so in December during the day a light long sleeve shirt and at night throw a hoodie on and we were fine. But that's because of the weather we're used to is on the cold side. If you're from warmer weather it might seem really cold to you. If you're from Canada you might not feel the need for the hoodie.

Shows will have similar schedules in December except if you go between say Dec 17-23 as many seem to go dark for a week during this slow time to rest before the holidays. We went in Dec 2016 18th-22 and noticed this.

I'll be in town during Christmas. Some pools will be open, though they won't be the full pool deck with amenities.

There will still be some shows going on though many large ones will be dark. I know there is a Vegas Knights vs LA Kings game on the 23rd, I'll be going to that. The Bellagio and Venetian tend to do nice Christmas displays. Linq has "snow" and Christmas carrols. Christmas Day will still have things open, though some restaurants will close for the holiday or even month.

I stayed in Vegas for New Year's last year and the weather was chilly for Vegas, pleasant by normal winter standards (I'm from NJ, so used to a cold winter). I found myself layering, pants with a light pullover and a t-shirt underneath. I would just keep an eye on weather as you get closer, but don't plan on packing winter coats.

Show/entertainment wise... not sure your exact dates, but if you're still in town around the 27-28th I would imagine a lot of headliners would be in town for New Year's Eve and have a few shows before the end of the year.

I've been there during the week between Xmas and New Year's. The temp in the casinos is perfect. :) The restaurants will be open, and you'll be able to plan something for Xmas day.

Skip buffets 23-26, the lines are long.

Yes, the "popular" buffets will have LONG lines. A 2 hour wait or more! And the prices will be jacked up. If you do go, go early in the day. Maybe even in the morning

Every year my mother and I travel to Vegas from Hawaii for 5 nights right before xmas day. Normally am home by the 24th

We absolutely love this time. The weather is cool but can also get cold. The casinos are so comfortable but you can still dish your pretty sweater.

The crowds are smaller the shoppingnsuperb with all the deals and xmas sales.

Some shows are on holiday though but not many.

I find the crowd to be cheerful and happy and we love it .

Every year for the past 5 years I've been staying at the wynn live that hotel. But this year will stay at the bellagio.

When you gamble make sure to get a player card they come with many first time user benefits like free buffet at the wynn free casino credit etc and when or if you like Vegas a lot they will send you awesome comp deals to entice you to return.

I've been to Vegas in June and the weather is hideously hot but not as dry as the winter.

Make sure to moisturize like crazy and drink lots of water :)
