What To Pack For A Trip To Las Vegas - Las Vegas Vacation Packing Tips

When going on a trip, you always want to bring everything that you may need while away from home, but not to bring too much because you don't want to carry too much stuff, especially if you don't use some of it. So what should you bring on a trip to Vegas? Well it depends, what are you visiting Las Vegas for (work, pleasure, family, wedding, bachelor party, etc.)? How long will you be in Las Vegas? What time of year are you visiting Las Vegas?

What clothes to pack when going to Las Vegas?

Most of the year the weather in Las Vegas is warm and the sun is always out, so you should be sure to bring sunscreen and hats to protect you from the sun as well as clothing suitable for warm weather like shorts and t-shirts. The majority of the year the weather is clear and sunny. So unless you check the weather and it says otherwise you probably won't experience any rain or precipitation so you don't need to bring rain coats or umbrellas. The best use for an umbrella in Las Vegas is to shade from the sun. The weather starts to cool down at the end of September and by November the temperatures average in the 40s-50s until the end of January when it starts to warm up again. If you visit Las Vegas in the winter months, be aware that you will need clothes to keep you warm at night so you may want to bring jackets and coats as well as gloves, hats, scarfs, etc. If you are in Vegas for a business event or wedding you will need to bring whatever you will wear to those events. Make sure your suits match and you have all articles of clothing you need, including ties, vests, jackets, pants, shirts, socks, shoes, cuff links, tie bars, bow ties, etc. You don't want to be stuck with everything that matches except one thing and be stuck buying something new or looking like a fool. Of course the longer you stay the more clothes you will want to bring. Many hotels offer laundry service so if you have at least two pairs of clothes you can get by but that is cutting it close. Most laundry services try to be done in a day but they do not always deliver, so come prepared.

What else to pack when visiting Las Vegas

Most hotels in Las Vegas offer free samples of soap and shampoo, etc. so you don't need bring any from home but you will still want to bring your tooth brush and toothpaste, as well as any deoderant or perfumes you may want and hair care products that you may need for your hair and shaving supplies and razors. You may want to bring a camera, but another option is to use disposable cameras that you can buy for about $10 and have them developed at your local photomat. This way if you lose your camera or it gets stolen then you are only out a few bucks, not the few hundred dollars that your digital camera is worth. Don't forget to bring copies of all your identification cards and passport, as well as copies of any other travel documents you may accidentally lose or get stolen. Make sure you bring your charger for your cellphone and any other gadgets or devices you might bring along. Remember though, whatever you bring you will have to carry around with you the whole trip and could possibly be lost or stolen. So try not to bring anything too heavy or too expensive.
