The Thanksgiving holidays in Las Vegas tend to be on the quiet side compared with cities such as New York which go all out. However, that’s not such a bad thing – a major benefit of is that it can be so much quicker to get around the Strip in a vehicle. Plus there’s still plenty to see and do and restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinners if you’re planning to give the home cooking a miss!
Thanksgiving takes place each year on the fourth Thursday of November, so this year that makes it 22nd November. It’s a four day weekend. All of which you might not know if you’re not from America.
Another plus if you’re planning on doing a lot of walking is that it’s not scorching at this time of year. The weather for the Thanksgiving holidays in Las Vegas is typically between 47°F and 67°F which is comfortable but make sure you pack some warm clothes in case it’s towards the chillier side... or don’t and use it as an excuse to take advantage of the fabulous sales...
