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.
