Tips for Visiting Las Vegas in January

  • Shows and conferences can sell out quickly! Get tickets as soon as you know you want to go.
  • Some shows don’t allow you to bring certain items in. Read all the fine print before heading there.
  • Save money with the All-Inclusive or Explorer Pass if you plan on visiting multiple attractions.
  • Bring layers – layers are important for visiting Las Vegas in January. As a local, I’m completely bundled up all month because I’m soft now.
  • Even though it’s cold, sunscreen is important, especially if you’re doing outdoor activities.
  • The sun sets early in January (around 4:30-5 PM), so plan your days around it if you want sunlight.
  • Arrive early to events and meals. It takes longer than you think to get from one spot on the strip to another.
  • Want to know what to wear to the airport? These are our ideal airport outfits and our carry on essentials for every flight.

What to Wear in Vegas in January

On sunny days it can still be warmish outside but temperatures definitely drop at night.

  • Bring layers – layers are essential for visiting Las Vegas. As the temperatures get hot outside, they crank up AC inside. These are our favorite travel jackets.
  • Dressy clothes – pack them if you plan on going clubbing or eating at nicer restaurants. You will see a mix of tourists in casinos dressed both up and down.
  • Shoes – If you’re going out at night, you’ll probably bring heels or dress shoes, but make sure you bring a pair of comfortable travel shoes as well. The casinos are massive, and you end up walking a lot to get from place to place

Is January the Best Time to Visit Las Vegas?

If you’re mostly going to be indoors on the Strip, visit any time of the year since the temperature won’t matter.

For outdoor activities like hiking and climbing, you should visit between November and March. But if you’re here for the pool parties and lake life, this is the time!
