Las Vegas begins to warm up in April

Average temperature low and high: 52°- 79°

April is traditionally when the action picks up in Las Vegas. However, the COVID-19 pandemic (which led to a shutdown around this time last year) is still a factor. Schedules and activities can change at a moment’s notice, so plan your Vegas trip with flexibility and search often for the best hotel deals.

More Things to Do in Las Vegas

Celebrate Spring Break in Las Vegas

As the weather heats up, Las Vegas becomes an in-demand destination for Spring Break. College students from around the country are in town to take advantage of hotel deals, drinking and socializing.

So why is Vegas such a big draw? First of all, everything is about convenience. The Strip is effectively a one-stop-shop with attractions in easy walking distance of hotel rooms. Plus… other parts of the country are still defrosting a bit from their winter chill. Vegas is full of sunshine with little rain to worry about. The only weather concern is the wind, which can often act up in April and catch unsuspecting visitors off-guard.

Spring Break Pool Parties

When spring comes around, dayclubs are traditionally a big draw. Beautiful people with beautiful bodies love to don their skimpiest swimwear to mix and mingle by the water. This year, any open pool parties will likely operate in lounge-mode with cabana, table or daybed reservations required and limitations on dancing and restrictions on name headliners.

Be ready to spend some money. The drinks get expensive, but it’s worth the price to splurge on a cabana. You’ll enjoy privacy, space and a model-level server waiting on your every need. The following dayclubs and pool parties are our top picks for the season.

  • Wet Republic: This wild and rowdy party at the MGM Grand is known for champagne showers and high-energy sets by big-name headliners like Steve Aoki and Tiesto, but operated as a more reserved lounge during the pandemic in 2020. Expect the same this year.
  • Drai’s: If you love beautiful scenery, you’ll love Drai’s. The pool includes stunning panoramic views of Las Vegas from the rooftop of the Cromwell hotel. DJs and guest performers usually lean towards hip-hop and R&B. The food isn’t bad either.
  • Encore Beach Club: The Wynn’s sprawling pool party has plenty of space, whether you want to relax in a cabana or watch girls dance on stripper poles above the water. The Chainsmokers, Marshmello and Diplo are among the top residencies, but check the latest schedules before booking a reservation.

Visit our pool party page for help making reservations or to get on the free guest list.

Spring Break Bars

Vegas is full of high-end ultra lounges, but spring breakers tend to keep things loose and fun. The following bars are popular destinations for the college crowd.

  • Rockhouse: This casual spot at the Venetian has great burgers, delicious nachos and all-you-can drink packages attractive to any college student on a tight budget.
  • Beer Park: This rooftop bar at Paris Las Vegas overlooks the Strip and Bellagio fountains across the street. Enjoy giant-size versions of games like Connect Four and Jenga while ordering one of more than 100 beers, including at least 30 on tap.
  • Blondies: A must-stop for sports fans who want to catch a big game on TV. Located inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, Blondies has more than 60 screens, late-night hours, and a $20 all-you-can-drink happy hour and reverse happy hour.
