The Cheapest Month To Go To Las Vegas Is January

According to Travel Tips USA Today, the cheapest time of the year to go to Las Vegas. As the publication explains, "During this month, flights tend to be 15 percent cheaper than they are the rest of the year, and that's likely because January is the coldest month in Las Vegas. Temperatures can drop to as low as 34 degrees Fahrenheit and reach a high of only 58 degrees."

But even though January is said to have fairly cold weather, people on Reddit say that it's subjective because you might live in a much more freezing climate. One user said it won't be bad for people who are used to it. They wrote, "If you come from Florida, brace yourself" and continued that Vegas winters are "cold and dry."
