First month of winter is traditionally high peak season at Las Vegas with top crowds coming around New Year’s Eve. If you consider visiting Las Vegas for New Year Eve, get ready to enjoy the finest drinking, dining and dancing in the Entertainment Capital of the World!
We recommend to start planning your December trip in advance as booking early will secure more options for your stay, booking your party place, and show tickets availability. Sin City sees hundreds of thousands extra guests around that time of the year – in December prices on hotels go up, and event tickets quickly sell out.
December entertainment options include great performances. Along with large selection of Las Vegas permanent Shows expect to see headliner performances of Gwen Stefani, Jay Leno, Ron White, and more! Since 1992, Las Vegas in December hosts annual Las Vegas Bowl game by ESPN Events at 40,000-seat Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
The in-town entertainment will keep you extremely busy, but if you don’t try a tour in Las Vegas, your experience won’t be complete. December is great month for outdoor adventures. From Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon tours, to Helicopter and ATV rides – try one of many tours and enjoy the amazing outdoor experience!
