As spring ends in Las Vegas the atmosphere changes from pool parties populated with college students and never-ending sporting events to warmer weather and daylife vs nightlife conundrums. June brings the beginning of summer and the longer days by the pool. Early June also brings lower hotel rates and the beginning of the summer promotions at many of the Las Vegas hotels. Grab the extra large bottle of sunscreen, a good book and waste a day at the pool in June in Las Vegas.
The weather in Las Vegas is warm in June, it’s not unbearably hot like July but it is warm. Ok, it’s hot; a high of just under 100 degrees is pretty average. However, the mornings are pleasant and if you spend the morning hours at the pool you will find that you are not bothered all that much by the heat. On a 100 degree day, the temperature will skyrocket after about noon so you have a lot of daylight hours to grab some rays and then take a long nap in your room before you heat up the strip yourself at night. Also, the evenings are nice and it's a dry heat anyway. Long days mean a lot of daylight so find an outdoor spot to do some people watching.
The World Series of Poker is going on all month at the Rio, even if you don’t play you should at least go look at this spectacle. Hundreds of tables that hold thousands of poker players across an expanse of convention hall space make for an incredible sight.
Summer usually brings some interesting pool parties and concerts so keep an eye open for more headliners. Take a look at what is happening this week in Las Vegas to get a good idea of what is in store for you.
Summer hotel deals open up this time of year. Hotels open their promotions book and let you have at it. You should find some really good deals to help you save some money on a trip to Las Vegas this June.
It may be too warm to sit outside and enjoy a drink but if you want a late night meal on a patio, try Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas. A midnight snack while watching the Las Vegas strip is pleasant because the temperature is usually comfortable enough to sit outside and enjoy the view.
If you are eating inside but want to feel like you are outside, try Enoteca Otto, Trevi or Margaritaville.
