Las Vegas is the number 1 destination for American travelers this fall and the travel industry knows it. Breeze Airways recently launched 8 new non-stop flights from different cities in the US to Sin City, and just a few weeks ago Frontier Airlines also announced 5 new routes with promotional rates starting at just $69.
More travelers are interested in visiting this fascinating destination that has so much to offer, from fascinating buildings and casinos to amazing landscapes and outdoor activities.
Las Vegas can please all kinds of tastes and interests and is the happiest city to vacation in the U.S. in 2022. If you are traveling to Las Vegas this fall, here’s what you should know:
Beware Of Hidden Hotel Fees
This year’s Las Vegas hotels’ hidden fees are higher than ever. These extra charges —written in fine print— range from $40 to $80 per night and can be excused as “benefits” or “perks” that are usually included in other hotels like internet services or parking spots.
Before booking a room, make sure you understand all fees included or search for hotels without resort fees. The room might look cheaper in comparison to other options on popular platforms like Booking.com, but at the end of the booking process, when these fees are added, it might actually be the most expensive room in the market. Read carefully!
The extreme summer heat has been extending to September, just a couple of days ago, Las Vegas peaked at 110 degrees. However, forecasts say it will cool down, and a few storms will occur. If you are traveling to Vegas soon, consider clothing for rain and hot weather.
Some travelers believe that the best time to visit Las Vegas is between September and November because the extreme heat is gone. The best weather sets in October—temperatures range from 89°F to 75°F— and November—from 74°F to 61°F.
Don’t Miss Unique Fall Events
There are many important and unique events in Vegas, like Adele’s Vegas Show at Caesars Palace which will finally start on November 18. Of course, Las Vegas offers events and shows for all tastes.
Travelers also can visit traditional casinos and museums like Madame Tussauds or the Illumination, but there are seasonal or once-in-a-lifetime events that might be worth the shot. Visitors can see upcoming events at Visit Las Vegas, Las Vegas Calendars, or Eventbrite.
Las Vegas Is Not Cheap
You don’t have to lose money on bad bets in the casino to realize that your budget might not be as sufficient as you thought. Travelers will encounter expensive hotels, expensive hidden fees, expensive meals, expensive shows, expensive gambling, and expensive shopping, especially on the Strip.
Try Simple Ways To Save Money
This is a city of opportunities and visitors can avoid spending money on tourist locations to save a few bucks and also prefer low-budget and yet unique things to do in Vegas like visit the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens—or even getting last-minute tickets for shows. Also, traditional saving strategies like avoiding holidays, using reward points, and comparing rates are always useful.
You have the perfect weather to make the most out of outdoor activities during fall. Las Vegas has so much more to offer than casinos and night shows. Without the extreme summer heat and still away from the freezing desert winter, it’s the perfect opportunity to go for a hike—there are great routes at the Valley of Fire State Park—, go kayaking, and if you are not that sportif, maybe a helicopter tour around the Grand Canyon?
Make Reservations For The Things You Don’t Want To Miss
If there is a show, conference, restaurant, museum, Grand Canyon tour, or activity you absolutely want to do while in Vegas, make that reservation asap! Tickets usually sold out fast for the most popular shows and iconic restaurants are typically full. You might save money by finding alternatives like last-minute tickets, but you risk missing what’s important to you.
