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. The month also features two of Las Vegas’ biggest sporting events, NASCAR and March Madness. Each brings its own devoted fanbase and accompanying concerts and entertainment.

St. Patrick’s Day 2019

Las Vegas loves a good party, and St. Patrick’s Day is a good excuse for a pub crawl up and down the Strip or throughout Downtown. The Irish holiday falls on a Sunday this year, so expect a full wild and rowdy weekend.

Best Irish Bar for St. Patrick’s Day Fun
For those looking for a memorable Vegas experience, we recommend heading to O’Sheas at The LINQ. Between live music, gaming tables, cornhole, and beer pong, you’ll never get bored.

Best Bar to See an Irish Band
Nine Fine Irishmen at the New York New York is the Strip’s most accessible, most lively Irish pub. Even on non-Irish holidays, the place features live music, dancing and a nice lineup of authentic Irish grub.
Limo, cover and two drinks for $35-$40 each at Las Vegas Strip Clubs
Best Place for a Perfect Pint of Guinness 
Ri Ra Irish Pub provides a unique and authentic Irish experience inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place. The bartenders have mastered the “perfect pour” of Guinness stout, which you can master yourself next door at one of the few officially-licensed Guinness retail shops in the world.

NASCAR Weekend 2019

NASCAR comes to Vegas the weekend of March 1–3, bringing race fans from across the country to watch the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series live. The action starts Friday with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Events continue Saturday with the Boyd Gaming 300 (named for the Fremont Street casino owners) and conclude Sunday with the Pennzoil 400. While most of the action takes place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, hotels all over town will fill up. Book early to get the best deals.

Racing and exotic car fans who want to test their mettle around a track should check out one of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s driving experiences, which allows fans to get behind the wheel of a hot ride themselves.

March Madness 2019

Ready to place a bet? Thousands flock to Las Vegas to wager on the NCAA college basketball tournament with games beginning on March 19. Most Vegas bars and strip clubs offer food and drink specials for catching the games on big screen televisions. Sportsbooks will have one of their busiest periods of the year, so expect the Las Vegas to be packed. Reports say 98 percent of hotel rooms on the Strip were booked during the first weekend of March Madness last year, so use our hotel deals page to find something on the cheap early.

Best Things to Do in March

Vegas offers plenty for those who aren’t necessarily fans of racing or basketball.

  • Drink FREE in Las Vegas: Lucky for you, LavishVegas knows where the free drinks and open bars 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.
  • Nightclubs: World-class DJs become a more common sight at the clubs. So if electronica or hip-hop is your thing, check out one of Sin City’s high-energy nightclubs. March is a great time to order bottle service as prices tend to be lower and hosts are more willing to negotiate deals. Need help navigating the Vegas club scene? Fill out a form on our trip planner.
  • Pool Parties: With the weather warming, spring breakers head to Vegas for sun and relaxation at the pools and dayclubs. Check the Pool Party Calendar.
  • Be a Tourist: March is a great time to walk around the Strip and take a few photographs. Use our Strip map to navigate Las Vegas Boulevard and find all the best bars and restaurants nearest you.
  • Local Culture: For a taste of the local counterculture, check out First Friday on March 1, when local artists and musicians get together in the Downtown Arts District for booze, food, conversation, and music.
