Las Vegas September concerts & shows take spotlight after Labor Day Weekend
Finally, after temperatures in the 100s for the past 3 months, Vegas starts to cool down in September. While you may still get leftover summer heat at the beginning of the month, Vegas is now set at a more comfortable weather for more things to do than just partying… did we really just say that?
Both the Strip and downtown teem with people, so book early to find the best deals on hotels.
Labor Day Weekend – September 1-3 2018
Labor Day weekend officially marks the end of summer, and next to Memorial Day and July 4, ranks as one of Las Vegas’ busiest weekends. Nightclub and dayclub prices skyrocket as partying shifts into top gear. If you’re not prepared for the chaos or not ready to spend the cash, you may want to wait for a quieter weekend.
Clubbing Tips for Labor Day Weekend
Partiers looking to skip the lines should plan on spending big bucks on a table or a cabana. As summer comes to a close, nightclubs and dayclubs fill up quick with weekend warriors looking to catch the end of hot days and warm nights. Buying tickets in advance is always recommended for gents that don’t want to combat the crowds.
