Summer weather lasts longer in Vegas than in most places, and the heat is definitely proving it with temperatures staying in the 80s through October. If the heat and sun are a bit much to handle, there are plenty of indoor activities to enjoy that will keep you cool with A/C or some ice-cold drinks! Read on below to find six of the best indoor activities in Vegas and where to enjoy them.
Las Vegas casinos are the ideal place to cool down inside. What’s great about them is the variety of casino games to play, so you’ll have plenty of options to keep you occupied until the sun has gone down and the weather has cooled outside. Be sure to take advantage of some ice-cold casino drinks while you’re at it. If you visit the casino at the D, Golden Gate, or Circa Las Vegas, you might actually heat up with the Dancing Dealers putting on an awesome show while you gamble. Dancing Dealers and A/C make it hot and cold at the same time!
Use the heat outside as an excuse to shop all day! Vegas is filled with shopping options that will keep you out of the sun for a while. From luxury shopping at places like the Shops at Crystals and the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace to snagging a deal at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets, you can really buy anything your heart desires. On top of the luxury shopping at the Forum Shops, the indoor mall is an experience in and of itself that captures the true Vegas spirit of combining hospitality with entertainment.
The foodie scene in Vegas continues to grow. When you’re seeking shelter from the heat, find reprieve in one of the many Las Vegas restaurants. Even just sitting in an air-conditioned restaurant is nice, but you can chill out even more by getting a cold meal. Grab a nice, cold deli sandwich from Saginaw’s Delicatessen. Or treat yourself and get a cold seafood platter for two at Andiamo Steakhouse with a chilled glass of white wine. And if you’re just looking for a dessert to cool you down, you can’t miss the milkshakes at Victory Burger.
Nothing quite cools you down like a good cocktail. Whether you like your drinks on the rocks or blended, Las Vegas is the perfect place to visit bars. Order up your favorite drink at BarCanada®, Vue Bar, of LONGBAR to stay inside. If you want to brave the heat outside, keep yourself cool with a frozen drink from D Bar. For a mix of indoor and outdoor vibes, you have to visit Legacy Club where you can enjoy a cold drink inside with a cool view from the rooftop bar. Or, if you totally want to chill out, the frozen wonderland at minus5 might be perfect for you.
Sit back, relax, embrace the A/C, and enjoy a show in Las Vegas. Vegas is home to many people with incredible skills and many shows that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Whether you choose to see a Las Vegas residency show with your favorite artist or a mystical show like Cirque du Soleil, Vegas shows are a great way to sit for a couple of hours while enjoying some serious talent. You can choose from music, comedy, magic, dancing, and everything in between. Try to buy your tickets in advance to make sure you get the best seat!
Take a break from the heat and learn some cool things while enjoying the A/C of a museum. Las Vegas has a range of museums to choose from depending on your interests. For example, if you‘re looking for something quirky and fun, head to the Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame Pinball Museum. History and nature buffs will love exploring the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. For a bit of Vegas history, the Mob Museum is a can’t-miss, they even have a speakeasy so you can have cocktails to cool you down even more!
Staying cool in Vegas is easy with all the indoor activities available. Even when it starts to cool down outside, keep these ideas in mind for your next trip to Vegas! And no matter if it is hot or cold outside, book a room at the D to relax in a room at the perfect temperature between your busy day of activities.
