Vegas packing list information

Ready to start packing? Here’s all the info you need to help you optimize your luggage. Discover what the weather will be like while you’re there and make sure not to forget the Vegas essentials.

What’s the weather like in Las Vegas?

The weather in Las Vegas, Nevada is warm and sunny most of the year (perhaps a little too warm in summer). It’s important to keep in mind that Las Vegas is in the desert so temperatures will always cool off quite a bit at night. Here’s more of what to expect weather-wise in Vegas depending on the month you’re visiting.

MonthAverage High/Low (ºF)

March-June and September-November are typically the best months to enjoy Las Vegas without scorching hot days or very chilly nights. Depending on your temperature preferences and planned activities while in Las Vegas, choose whatever month is right for you and pack accordingly. If you’re traveling anytime outside of the summer months, you’ll definitely need some warmer clothes for evenings out.

Vegas-specific items to pack:

To hit the clubs

Planning on enjoying the best of Vegas nightlife while you’re in Sin City? For those looking to spend nights dancing in Tao and days at beach clubs, there are a few things you should know when it comes to your Vegas packing list.

Men, you’re going to need the following in Vegas:

  • Nice, fitted jeans (preferably darker denim or black) or dress pants
  • Button-up, collared shirts
  • Sport coat (optional)
  • Dress shoes
  • Swimsuit (required for day clubs and pool parties)
  • Small, drawstring bag (day clubs and pool parties)
  • Sunglasses (day clubs and pool parties)
  • Hats (day clubs and pool parties)

Almost as important as the what-to-wear list is the what-NOT-to-wear list. Baggy jeans, tee shirts (with rare exceptions), sneakers, hats, sandals, shorts, and any kind of athletic wear/jerseys are big NOs in Vegas clubs.

Ladies, be sure to bring a small cross-body purse or clutch to hold your belongings. Larger bags may be able to be checked but you may just be turned away.

While we’re all for women feeling confident in whatever they choose to wear, unfortunately in Vegas – if you want to gain entry to certain nightclubs – you have to play by their rules.

Vegas packing list for the family

Off to Vegas with the kids in tow? There are a few family-specific must-haves to add to your Vegas packing list.

  • Comfortable shoes for the kids (for all the walking up and down The Strip!)
  • Flip flops or Crocs for by the pool
  • UV-protective clothing/swimsuits (safest option for that desert sun)
  • Wide-brimmed hat
  • Plenty of swimsuits so you always have one dry
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • White noise machine for noisy Las Vegas hotel room hallways

Traveling with a baby? These products make the journey as easy as possible:

  • The Nuna Pipa Lite RX car seat is ultra-light, FAA-approved for planes, and can be used without its base.
  • The Ergobaby Metro+ stroller fits in the overhead bin and lays completely flat to let baby nap well on the go.
  • The Tula Lite Baby Carrier folds up into its own waistband (like a fanny pack) and is by far the best baby carrier for traveling with infants.
