The weather is cooling off as the year winds down in Las Vegas
November is traditionally a quiet month for Las Vegas. As the weather cools off, hotel rooms and flights can be scored for a great price. While the four-day Thanksgiving weekend does attract visitors, it’s one of the slower holiday periods in Las Vegas. As always, LavishVegas has the best hotel deals.
Things to do in November
See Celine Dion’s Return to Las Vegas

Spend a Day N Vegas
The rap, R&B and hip-hop festival known as Day N Vegas returns November 12-14. Guests will enjoy dozens of performances at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds (near the north end of the Strip) with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott and Tyler, The Creator as the headliners. Check with LavishVegas for the latest ticket availability.
Ice Skate at the Cosmopolitan
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Las Vegas. The Ice Rink at the Cosmopolitan traditionally marks its return in November at the Boulevard Pool. Take a spin on the ice or hang out by the fire pits with seasonal cocktails, s’mores and light bites. Holiday movies are often shown on the resort’s digital marquee.
See a Free Rock Show on Fremont Street
The Downtown Rocks free concert series winds down with a pair of performances at the Fremont Street Experience. George Thorogood & The Destroyers take the stage November 6, while Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil plays a solo show November 24, the night before Thanksgiving (a celebration known as “Drinksgiving”).
Enjoy Thanksgiving in Las Vegas
Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 25. As with any long weekend, travelers from across the country will flock to Las Vegas for shopping, dining and more. Whether celebrating with family, friends, or just someone special, you can enjoy special holiday menus from the city’s top restaurants. Many offer Thanksgiving meals to go if you feel more comfortable dining in your hotel room.

After shutting down for much of the pandemic, the Hoover Dam is once again welcoming guests. The landmark is being reopened in phases. You can visit the walkways and observation areas. No tours, visitors center or cafe for now.
With outdoor temperatures averaging around 55 degrees, November is an ideal time to hike through Red Rock Canyon, rent an ATV, helicopter over the Strip, or visit the Grand Canyon.
