Heat, rain and Independence Day Weekend dominate July in Las Vegas

Average temperature low and high: 74° - 106°

The temperatures are hotter than ever, but July also marks the beginning of monsoon season in Southern Nevada. Sometimes showers come and go quickly in specific pockets of the valley. Other times it can lead to dangerous flooding (with the parking garage of The LINQ a notoriously bad spot). For the most part, you should be okay. Just be ready for rain at a moment’s notice. You’ll also want to be ready for July 4th, which falls on a Thursday this year, so expect a long extended weekend of crowds and partying on the Strip.

Things to do in July in Las Vegas

Celebrate July 4th

Las Vegas will celebrate our nation’s independence with fireworks, parties, and drinks throughout an extra-long holiday weekend. July 4th falls on a Thursday this year, so expect crowds to linger throughout Vegas a few extra days.

In anticipation of our nation’s birth, hotels, casinos, and airlines raise their rates and, as is the case on all three-day weekends, the cost of Vegas nightlife goes up.

Where to watch 4th of July Fireworks?

Special events in July

The World Series of Poker: If you’re a card player, poker enthusiast, or just looking to hang with some of the best gamblers in the world, then head to The Rio for The World Series of Poker. Every year from late May until mid July, the WSOP entices players from all around the world to come and compete in the most difficult poker tournaments of the year. The best of the best come out in pursuit of winning a gold bracelet, and even more so, the millions up for grabs in The Main Event will run from July 2-14. So put your poker face on. Remember it’s only luck… right?

NBA Summer League: For ten days every summer, professional basketball comes to Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League. Being held at the Thomas & Mack Center the best and brightest young talent are expected to show up and compete in a tournament that will ultimately result in a league champion. If you’re an NBA fan, the Summer League gives you a closer look at young players who you don’t get to see during the regular season, alongside the NBA’s top talent. And the best part is you don’t need to ball out. Dates coming soon.

FreedomFest: This four-day gathering of “free thinkers” at Paris Las Vegas seems to have a right-of center philosophy on the surface, but is actually non-partisan with no organizational affiliations. It’s simply a celebration of free thought and enlightened philosophy. Activities include morning yoga, more than a hundred exhibitors and film screenings July 17-20. This year’s edition has a “Wild West” theme, touching on topics like the Gold Rush and westward expansion that should strike a chord in Nevada. Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary is among the roughly 200 guest speakers.

More fun things to do in July…

Pool Parties: The dayclubs are packed as partiers look for relief from the summer heat. The biggest names in EDM and R&B are typically among the headline entertainment. Of course, there will be plenty of booze and food as well. Visit our pool party page for calendar and deals.

Wet ‘N’ Wild: For those traveling with kids, Wet ‘N’ Wild has more than 25 water slides and attractions guaranteed to keep family members of all ages entertained. The water park is southwest of the Strip, but easy to reach with a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft.

High Roller: The 550-foot-tall High Roller is the tallest observation wheel in the world. A full ride takes about 30-40 minutes and passengers soak in incredible 360-degree views day and night. Book a Happy Half Hour package and enjoy an open bar inside the cabin. 

Ziplines: Fly LINQ is the first and only zipline on the Strip. Strap in and soar through the air from Las Vegas Boulevard to the base of the High Roller wheel. Other ziplines around town include Slotzilla on Fremont Street, the VooDoo Zipline between the towers of the Rio hotel and Bootleg Canyon, a zipline park in Boulder City.

Nightclubs: When the sun goes down, the clubs heat up. Partiers enjoy the biggest names in EDM at hot spots like Omnia at Caesars Palace, XS at Wynn Encore, Hakkasan at the MGM Grand, Jewel at Aria and much more. Book with Lavish Vegas for bottle service package deals and VIP service.

Drink FREE in Las Vegas: Lucky for you, Lavish Vegas knows about special events that include free drinks and open bars, often at the hottest clubs and bars on the strip. However, these deals are usually announced without much notice. Check our club page before and during your visit to Las Vegas, where you can login with your Facebook account and review special offers.
