    It's really easy to avoid the heat if you want to spend your entire day in a casino. Sit at a blackjack table and you will not feel the heat. You will keep cool. Unfortunately, you might lose a lot of money. In some cases, it's wise to institute a policy of only gambling when it's dark. It will save you plenty of money and force you to go looking for diversions. Those diversions usually required you to be inside since the summer months can be quite warm. The weather in Las Vegas can be ugly in the summer months if you are opposed to the heat. Some people love it and you'll see them walking down Las Vegas Blvd. with a drink in hand acting like the blazing heat is their idea of paradise.

    Ways to Stay Cool

    So what do you do if you aren't loving the brutal heat? Check out these suggestions for staying cool in Las Vegas:
