Las Vegas is a sparkling gem in the heart of the Nevada desert. While known for flashy casinos and lively libations dotting the ever-so-famous Strip, there’s more to the city than that. Vegas has roller coasters perched atop buildings, indoor skydiving facilities and even hidden waterfalls — an oasis in the middle of the desert — open for free to the public.

Talk to a Las Vegas resident and they’ll tell you that there are two seasons here: summer and winter. It’s the desert after all, so summer days can get very hot – 100 degrees-plus (Fahrenheit) from Memorial Day in May through Labor Day in early-September. Summer nights do not cool off much, so stay hydrated as you enjoy the many Vegas attractions. On the flipside, winter in Vegas usually means sunny skies and much-cooler temperatures, with daytime highs reaching the 50s and 60s (Fahrenheit) and lows near freezing.
