March Madness, NASCAR and St. Patrick's Day celebrations are all great excuses for visiting Las Vegas in March

Average temperature low and high: 45° - 75°

The weather is warming up in Las Vegas with sunny skies and balmy temperatures hovering between the 50s and 70s. It’s a great way to kick off the beginning of tourist season. Some hotels will even have their pools open with cabana packages and VIP bottle service. When it comes to sports, the month is all about March Madness with viewing parties and betting windows up and down the Strip.
