Las Vegas November 2017 Guide

Las Vegas shows & events on sale in November as strip cools

Average temperature low and high: 43°- 67°

If you’re coming to Las Vegas to relieve stress and avoid crowds, November is about as quiet and relaxed as the Strip gets. The weather cools off considerably, many hotel pools close for the season and concerts, events and shows scale down. Flights and hotel rooms can be had for a fraction their usual price. The City of Sin slumbers before swinging back into action for the holidays. While the four-day Thanksgiving weekend does attract visitors, revelers should beware, Thanksgiving is one of Las Vegas’ slower holiday weekends.


Thanksgiving falls early in 2016, on Thursday, November 24. As with any long weekend, travelers from across the country flock to Las Vegas to partake in shopping, dining, and nightlife.

Gluttons looking to gorge themselves on Turkey Day fare will find buffets and dinners for any budget, ranging from just under $20 to $150 per person. Menus both on and off the Strip feature Vegas twists on Thanksgiving classics, like Holstein’s (at Cosmopolitan) turkey burger topped with cranberry relish, stuffing, and gravy, as well as scrumptious seasonal cuisine from celebrity chefs. For example, Giada’s at The Cromwell last year served pumpkin tiramisu.

Thanksgiving is also the perfect opportunity to head to some of the city’s more popular nightclubs. Cover prices are lower. The clientèle tend to be collected and composed: You won’t have to hack your way through swarms of costumed party-goers for a cocktail.

Things To Do in November

Las Vegas is home to both of the world’s premiere rodeo finals. From November 2 through the 6, T-Mobile Arena houses the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) World Finals. During that time, apart from catching one of five performances, you are more likely than not to sit down to blackjack with some of the world’s greatest bull riders, reminders of the cowboys who shaped the American West.

With outdoor temperatures averaging around 55º F, November is also a great time to hike through Red Rock Canyon, tour the Hoover Dam, rent an ATV, helicopter through the Las Vegas Valley or the Grand Canyon, or drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini at one of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s three exotic car racing experiences.

Free Things to Do in November

Fall offers pleasant weather for strolling the 4.2-mile Las Vegas Boulevard, which offers visitors the chance to see sights on the Strip, Fremont Street (also called downtown Las Vegas), and everything in between. Be sure to use our interactive Las Vegas Strip Map to help you navigate. Our map provides exact locations for bars, restaurants, and even walk times.

Peruse the art galleries, fountains, outdoor sculptures, and boutique clothing stores flanking walkways that meander through MGM’s City Center (which includes the Mandarin Oriental, the Aria, and Crystals shopping complex). Or take a stroll through MGM’s The Park, new for 2016, which offers outdoor dining, rooftop bars, and picnic tables.

Unknown by many visitors are Sin City’s own First Fridays. As the name suggest, the first Friday of every month, a community of artists, musicians, and chefs gathers in Las Vegas’ Art District (located south of downtown, off Charleston Boulevard, between Main Street and Casino Center Boulevard) to dance, drink, and celebrate their crafts. November 4th’s event starts at 6 p.m., lasting officially until 10 p.m., but attendees frequent nearby bars following the main event until all hours of the night.

Shows, Events & Concerts in November

Britney Spears

Pop rock divas Celine Dion and Britney Spears and guitar legend Carlos Santana have weekend concerts throughout the month of November. Boyz II Men continues their series of shows at the Mirage, ready to help you relive the 1990s. See our links below for tickets and exact dates and times.

Mirage’s Terry Fator Theater also hosts comedy duo Ray Romano and David Spade (11/12/16) and icons Wayne Brady (11/18/16) and Jay Leno (11/19/16). Tim Allen and Jim Jefferies pay Vegas visits for a series of shows at the same theater at the beginning and end of the month, respectively.

T-Mobile Arena this year hosts the Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday, November 17, which is sure to draw crowds of singers and celebrities you may not otherwise see.

Carrie Underwood headlines Thanksgiving weekend at MGM’s newest arena (11/26/2016), but act now because tickets are sure to sell out for an incredibly popular artist who isn’t in Vegas very often.

After seeing Underwood, fans of country might want to stick around for Caesars Palace Colosseum regulars Reba, Brooks, and Dunn, who close out the month on a Wednesday (11/30/16).
