What to do in Vegas Labor Day Weekend?

While September may mark the end of summer for some, out here in Las Vegas, the season is still going strong. In fact, Labor Day isn’t the end of the summertime entertainment and a return to normalcy. It’s the start of a new season of dancing, dining, and drinking.

If you’re eyeing up Sin City for your Labor Day activities, we have some tips to ensure you have the best weekend possible.

From how you should pack to the parties to watch out for and attractions worth visiting, here is your guide to a fantastic Vegas Labor Day weekend.

Labor Day Weekend in Las Vegas - What to Do

What’s the Weather Like?

Many pockets of the country are typically cooling down by the time September rolls around. It’s still not cool, but it’s not “peak of summer” hot. Well, the same can’t quite be said about Vegas.

If you’re in the Nevada desert for Labor Day weekend, prepare for high temperatures.

The highs for Labor Day weekend can still get to as high as 100° F. It may hover closer to 95° F, but on a dry day with no clouds in the sky, that can feel hotter than you expect. Are you worried about a little rain? Even though it’s still technically monsoon season, there’s often a very low chance of rain. And if it does rain, it clears up very quickly.

How Should I Dress?

With those temperatures in mind, you’re probably mentally scanning your wardrobe.

Dress in lightweight fabrics and light colors. If you’re wearing sandals, make sure the bottom is thick enough to keep your feet away from the asphalt. We also don’t recommend rubber flip-flops, especially if the weather isn’t cooperating and it’s very hot, as they can melt.
