Find time in between football parties and dinner dates to start your spring early and explore the outdoors amid Las Vegas’ most comfortable weather.
Super Bowl Weekend
February opens with United States’ biggest, most celebrating sporting events: Super Bowl LI (Sunday, February 5).

Nightclubs are slammed with celebrity-hosted Super Bowl parties. Find the best places to watch the Super Bowl here.
Couples heading to Vegas for some February romance will want to book early. Hotels and restaurants will be at high occupancy both on Valentine’s Day, (which falls on a Tuesday in 2017) and on the weekends bookending the holiday, especially February 18–20. Take a look at our top 5 shows to see Valentine's Day 2017.
President’s Day Weekend
While every three-day weekend in Las Vegas is busy, President’s Day weekend (February 18–20) tends to be the least crowded and crazy. Take advantage of the cool temperatures and reasonable prices and celebrate George Washington’s birthday in style.
Comfortably cool Las Vegas weather makes February ideal for exploring the nearby canyons and mountains, providing visitors with opportunities for outdoor activities that are otherwise impossible in the summer heat.
The Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort at Mount Charleston is located only 50 miles from the Strip. Here, thrill seekers can tackle the slopes. Kids can play in the snow.
The basins and ranges surrounding Las Vegas provides plenty of challenging terrain for adrenaline-inducing activities, such as Jeep tours, ATVs, UTVs, and dune buggies. Off-roading is one of the best ways to see and photograph the unique shapes and earthy, pastel colors of the American Southwest, including the Nellis Dunes, Hidden Valley, and the Mojave Desert.
And if you haven’t yet seen it, head to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, which is just a couple hours away. Considered one of the seven wonders of the natural world, the canyon is over a mile deep and offers visitors hiking, rafting, and horseback riding opportunities. We encourage you to take a bus tour or a helicopter ride, the latter of which offers you the best perspective of the canyon’s size and beauty.
Pink Jeep Tours are popular for their good service, uniqueness, and variety. Their tours include the Strip, Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Valley of Fire, and more.
If you’re looking for something mellower, try the Big Bus Tour around the Strip and downtown (Fremont Street). Their open double-decker buses allow you to hop and off at many different Vegas icons, including the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. The top level provides unobstructed views, perfect for photographs.

- Stroll the Strip: Besides the different resorts’ impressive architecture, you’ll see dozens of sidewalk performers who attempt to entertain the masses and pose for pictures dressed up as celebrities or popular characters such as the Minions from Despicable Me or Star Wars’ Chewbacca. FYI – they ask for tips. Walking the Strip you will almost certainly leave you hungry and thirsty. Use our interactive mobile map for walk times and to find nearby restaurants, bars and activities.
- Visit Red Rock: Located about 19 miles from the Strip, Red Rock Canyon is one of the most impressive sights in the Las Vegas Valley. The National Conservation Area features nineteen different trails for hiking. They range from easy one-hour strolls to difficult five-hour climbs, providing different views and ways to experience the reserve. While the hikes themselves are free, the land is owned and operated by the U.S. Department of the Interior. They charge a very reasonable, flat rate per vehicle.
