President’s Day Weekend
While every three-day weekend in Las Vegas is busy, President’s Day weekend (February 16–19) 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.
Things to Do in February
- Drink FREE in Las Vegas: Lucky for you, LavishVegas knows where all the special events are that include free drinks and open bars. These free offers are at some of the hottest clubs and bars on the strip. Events are added without much notice. Check our bar page before and during your visit. Login with your Facebook account to review the special offers.
- 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 will almost certainly leave you feeling hungry and thirsty. Use our interactive mobile map for walk times and to find nearby restaurants, bars and activities.
- Hit the Slopes: 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.
- Adrenaline Rush: The basins and ranges surrounding Las Vegas provide plenty of challenging terrain for adrenaline-inducing activities, such as Jeep, ATV, UTV, and dune buggy tours. 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. 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.
- Tours: 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 on and off at many different Vegas landmarks, including the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. The top level provides unobstructed views, perfect for photographs.
- 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.

Shows, Events & Concerts in February
Las Vegas’s latest trend is its resurrection of late-1990s, early 2000s pop artists. The city has given Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and the Backstreet Boys new lives and new homes. Their concerts often command a high price, yet still sell out. Act now to reserve a seat that will remind you what life was like in a previous decade. Also not to be missed for diva fans: Jennifer Lopez’s “All I Have.” Both live events are at Planet Hollywood’s Axis Theatre.
Speaking of Latin divas, best-selling, South American pop idol Shakira comes to MGM’s Garden Arena on February 10. Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana continues his residency at Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues, an intimate setting where you’ll have the opportunity to listen to his greatest hits. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace hosts Elton John’s show, “The Million Dollar Piano,” throughout February starting on Friday, February 9.
