1. Never take a taxi to a strip club
Las Vegas September concerts & shows take spotlight after Labor Day Weekend
Finally, after temperatures in the 100s for the past 3 months, Vegas starts to cool down in September. While you may still get leftover summer heat at the beginning of the month, Vegas is now set at a more comfortable temperature for more things to do than just partying... did we really just say that?
Labor Day Weekend – September 1-4 2017
Labor Day weekend officially marks the end of summer, and next to Memorial Day and July 4, ranks as one of Las Vegas’ busiest weekends. Nightclub and dayclub prices skyrocket as partying shifts into top gear. Both the Strip and downtown teem with people, so book early and check out our free trip planner to find the best deals on hotels and flights. If you’re not prepared for the chaos or not ready to spend the cash, you may want to wait for a quieter weekend.
Partiers looking to skip the lines should plan on spending big bucks on a table or a cabana. As summer comes to a close, nightclubs and dayclubs fill up quick with weekend warriors looking to catch the end of hot days and warm nights. Buying tickets in advance is always recommended for gents that don't want to combat the crowds.
