June could be a promising time for Las Vegas
Consider all events on this page tentative until we know the full scale and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic. Las Vegas joined much of the country in shutting down non-essential businesses in March and promoting social distancing until further notice. Everyone hopes business will return to normal by summer, when visitors can enjoy hot weather, resorts and attractions in Las Vegas.
Things to do in June in Las Vegas
Eat out for Restaurant Week in Las Vegas
Restaurant Week is actually a two-week stretch in Las Vegas, in which restaurants offer prix fixe menus for fantastic prices. Hopefully, by the time June rolls around, the Nevada shutdown of non-essential businesses will be lifted and dining spots will be back open. Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to check out places that might typically be out of your price range and sample their signature dishes. Money raised for Restaurant Week benefits the Three Square food bank, which helped feed a lot of people out of work during the coronavirus pandemic.
See a Concert in Las Vegas
Arena rockers Bon Jovi are still set to bring their latest world tour to the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday, June 20. If residencies resume as planned in June, it’s also a great month to check out Aerosmith at the Park Theater, Shania Twain at Zappos Theater and Sting or Reba, Brooks & Dunn at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The venue is also scheduled to host a limited run of five dates by Morrisey.

More fun things to do in June…
Pool Parties: Summer is prime time for pool parties. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, lines should be shorter and prices cheaper to enjoy drinks and music by the water. See our pool party page for calendar and deals.
High Roller: Known to most tourists for its photogenic views of the Strip, the High Roller is at its best during the nighttime Happy Half Hour, which, for a few dollars more than the price of a regular ride, offers guests an open bar the entire time the wheel rotates.
Ziplines: Ziplines are a great outdoor summer activity. The breeze generated from flying at 30+ mph cools you off a bit during the hot weather, and the experience offers fresh views of Sin City and the surrounding desert. Review the best options here.
Nightclubs: Clubs have the inherent advantage of operating long after the sun sets, making daytime summer highs irrelevant to enjoying the city’s world-famous nightclubs. It’s still early but you can look ahead to the top DJs performing in June.More Things to Do in Las Vegas
