View Full Version : What to wear in Vegas in May
04-20-2009, 08:30 PM
Have never been, but am going in about 3 weeks for 4 nights. We're going to be doing a lot of walking around the town, Cirque du Soleil one night, Grand Canyon one of the days...so do I plan on summer-type clothes? I know it gets cooler in the evenings.
Also, if anyone has gone and can recommend a restaurant or someplace they particularly enjoyed - please share!

My dd and I were just there a couple of weeks ago and most everyone was in shorts, tshirts, sandals, or summer dresses. It was 80*, clear, sunny, with some wind at times, so a light jacket or sweater would be fine for the evenings.

We really liked Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. It right in the heart of the strip with an upper outside seating area. This gives you a nice view of the strip. They also have very good margaritas. :D
I don't know if you'll have a car or not but look for self parking in any of the casinos which is free or there is a bus which costs $10-12 (I don't remember for sure) that you can buy a full day pass for or if you like walking bring good shoes because there is alot to see. Do go to the Venetian across the street from Treasure Island. It's so cool with its indoor gondola ride.
If you are looking for simpler foods, they have a Whole foods at the south entrance. That's a good place to buy bottled water.

Sounds like there is a lot to choose from!

we're there every single solitary May and it's almost always hotter than blazes. :) It's a good time of year to frequent the European sunbathing pool at Caesar's Palace. Don't ask me how I know that. :)
Inside the casinos it's a rather frigid 64 degrees. :eek: Layers, layers, layers. And comfy shoes.
I'm not going this year, thank goodness. I'm Vegas'd out. :)
Best restaurant though is Diego at the MGM Grand. Fabulous mexican food - if you like hot they've got stuff that isn't even on the menu. Just tell your server that you want "hot". And get the guac made at the table. Yum.

:D Every May!! WOW!
Thanks for the clothing and restaurant tips. Need to look for some comfy shoes/sandles to bring!
Love freshly made guac! Diego will be on my list.

I'll second the comfy shoes! We were there last April for my sister's wedding and I had 4 pairs of shoes give me blisters! :mad: None of them were new, I had worn them there the year before, but because we were doing so much walking, they just didn't...wear right. :(
Yes! Yes! Diego is FANTASTIC! We ate there right before we went and saw Cirque de Soliel's Ka production.
Here's a slew of restaurants (http://scifiwithpaprika.blogspot.com/search?q=Las+Vegas)I reviewed on my blog if you have a few moments.

Varaile~I went to your link to see what restaurants you have listed...and...MESA Grill is the first one!! I loved that restaurant in NY. I was just going through one of my drawers and came across a matchbook from there!
We just spent two nights in Vegas last week. The weather was in the 70s. Sunny, but not hot. Okay to lay by the pool until the breeze kicked up. I would agree that you'll need some sort of jacket or sweater to take on and off as you move inside and out.
I was going to recommend Mesa Grill. Not sure if this was on the blog or not, but it's in Ceasar's. It's not cheap, but the food is divine. At least IMO.
Coincidentally, we were also at the Grand Canyon. Our weather there? Snow! We were camping and the temps were a bit on the frigid side. Woke up to 17 degrees one morning and 10 another. Hey, I thought it was spring!
Have a great trip!

TKay~it was mentioned that the casinos are pretty cold! I think most of our time is going to be spent out and about and enjoying some of the restaurants. Of course we'll be doing a few shows as well :)
I went today to find comfy shoes that did not look like clod-hoppers :rolleyes: Hopefully the ones I got will do the trick!
