Is Las Vegas expensive at Christmas?
How much you spend in Las Vegas will depend on how much you want to invest, how far in advance you plan your trip, whether you want to visit in high season or low season; however, Las Vegas at Christmas time is completely affordable.
While prices creep during the holidays, the lull between them is historically the cheapest time to go to Vegas. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve are very heavy travel dates. However, prices tend to drop between these times. As a result, flights tend to be less packed, hotel rooms are likely to be less full, and people are less likely to travel. This is a win-win for you.
Christmas activities for adults
When the kids go to sleep, it's time to enjoy the fun for the grown-ups. In Las Vegas there are hundreds of nightclubs for you to visit:
Is located at the roof of the Cromwell Hotel. It has indoor and outdoor areas to party to provide you with a greater experience. Unlike many other clubs, Drai has created an identity of its own by giving us live musical performances of the best artists of the moment. It also has a fireworks show that is shot from the top of the place.
Marquee Nightclub is located at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Feel lucky because you found one of the best rooms in Las Vegas. It's a first class club, with excellent amenities, spectacular light show and great music. At night the pool area surrounding Marquee Dayclub is connected to the main room of the club, so you can enjoy the pool as well.
It is located in the Hotel Paris and also offers a rooftop nightclub experience but with the addition of the Eiffel Tower in front of us. It also includes DJ shows combined with live performances.
What is the outfit for Christmas in Las Vegas?
To choose your best outfit for Las Vegas you should think about the activities you are going to do. If your plan is to walk the Strip and see all the Christmas attractions, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes and warm clothes to better enjoy the experience.
