Although there’s always something fun to do in Las Vegas year-round, fall is arguably one of the best times to enjoy the city. Autumn temperatures provide comfortable relief from the scorching 100-degree summer temperatures, with average temperatures ranging between the mid-60s through the mid-90s. You can also expect smaller crowds around the Las Vegas Strip with the wrap-up of summer vacation season too.
There may not be as much colorful fall foliage compared to other parts of the United States, but there’s still plenty of other ways to enjoy the season in Las Vegas, including pumpkin patches, mom-and-pop coffee shops, and outdoor sporting events.
Check out our fall guide for a unique Las Vegas seasonal experience!
Catch a Sports Game
If there’s one thing synonymous with fall, it’s football season. There’s no better time now than to catch a Raiders game now that the team has officially established Las Vegas as its home at Allegiant Stadium. A variety of single-game and VIP options can be found on the team’s official website.
If football isn’t your game, there are still plenty of other great teams to catch during the fall, including the Las Vegas Aviators whose season extends into early fall. The Golden Knights also start their season in October as well.
Explore the Las Vegas Arts District
Located about a mile from the Fremont Street Experience, the Las Vegas Arts District — sometimes referred to as the 18B Arts District — features over 18-blocks of art galleries, murals, restaurants, bars, antique shops, and other cultural treasures.
Fall is also one of the best times to experience First Friday, a monthly arts and entertainment festival that features food and drink vendors, musical and visual performances, and community-oriented artists displaying their works across several galleries.
Visit Gilcrease Orchard
Gilcrease Orchard is a family-owned orchard with a 90-year history of providing fresh, locally grown produce and crops, including apples, pomegranates, squash, and cucumbers.
The orchard also has a pumpkin patch running from now until Oct. 31. A number of other special crops and treats are available for the season including Utah Honey Crisp Apples, sunflowers, homemade peanut, and almond butter, apple cider, and apple cider donuts.
Experience Fall Colors at the Bellagio
The Bellagio Hotel and Casino’s Conservatory and Botanical Garden changes its floral displays with each season. The resort recently unveiled its fall display “Deeper Into the Woods” which features festive foliage, oversized 800lb gourds, mushroom topiaries, and enchanting animal displays.
The display is free and open to the general public inside the Bellagio and makes for a great destination for fall-themed selfies and photo shoots.
Explore the Great Outdoors
Sure Las Vegas’ main draw will always be the neon glitz of The Strip, but there is plenty of great scenic nature and hiking spots that are perfect for Las Vegas’ fall temperatures.
Perhaps one of the best places near Las Vegas to take in the changing season is Mt. Charleston, located about 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas. You can find beautiful fall scenery on Mt. Charleston and the surrounding Spring Mountain Range from around mid-September to until the end of October, as well as much cooler weather that’s typically 20 degrees cooler than the city.
Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire State Park are also beautiful hiking destinations that are within an hour or less drive from Las Vegas.
