 When to Go 
Las Vegas has crafted itself as a truly year-round destination, with many of its top attractions located indoors in thoroughly climate-controlled environments. If you want to avoid the biggest crowds and shop for off-peak hotel discounts, don't even think about visiting during a major holiday, and be sure to check the listings on the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Web site for major events that can flood the Strip with conventioneers. If you plan to indulge your passion for tennis while you’re in Vegas, brace yourself for hot daytime weather from May through October, with summertime highs frequently climbing to triple-digit temperatures. Even in summer, however, the mercury tends to drop into the 70s, so book your court times for the early-morning hours when conditions will be most pleasant.

 Transportation Tips 
When booking air travel to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, remember that flights operated by discount carriers Southwest and JetBlue do not show up in search results for most online booking sites. Las Vegas is a major hub for Southwest, with nonstop or connecting service from dozens of cities. JetBlue offers nonstop flights to Las Vegas from Long Beach, Boston and New York/JFK. Whatever airline you choose, consider booking a travel package that combines air transportation, accommodations and activities, which can be somewhat cheaper than booking each component of your trip separately.

Renting a car upon arrival really isn't necessary if you expect to spend most of your time along the Strip, which is served by an efficient new air-conditioned monorail system that stops at or near all major hotels and the Las Vegas Convention Center. Taxis and door-to-door van services provide fast and reasonably affordable transportation from the airport, though you will want to have your own wheels if you plan to spend much time in other parts of the city or in the surrounding desert country.
