  • Summer outfits. Sunscreen. Comfy shoes for walking.

    Right now we are in triple digits so you want things that are good in heat.

    For example...right now its almost 9am and already in the high 80's, our heat of the day is usually around 4-5p and from what I read its gonna be around 105 or so today.

  • Clothes for really really really hot weather and money. If you're going to be on the strip most of the time you don't really need anything else that you can't pick up inside the nearest casino/hotel lol except maybe comfortable walking shoes! We love going to Vegas but I refuse to go between June-September! I don't do well with extreme heat.

  • Amaranth361 : I'm in NJ and we're in a heat wave. Ugh. I've heard it's a dry heat there (vs. humid here). Does it feel any different?

  • Comfortable shoes and dark sunglasses are a must here. Lots of walking and the sun is insanely bright! It's so bright it would hurt my eyes and give me a massive headache if I didn't wear dark sunglasses every day. Also make sure you wear sunscreen, because you can burn here in as little as 10-15 minutes. Have fun! Even in the summer, this is a great place to be.

  • Oh and YES it feels completely different without humidity. The nights here are especially beautiful. It can be 90 degrees after the sun goes down and it doesn't feel hot at all. It's most comfortable here in the mid 80s to 90s which sounds hot but it's not.. I moved here from Northern Illinois, where the humidity is really high. It is completely different and so much more comfortable.

  • Dry heat will crack your lips and skin. Be sure to pack lotion, maybe some with sunscreen, and chapstick.

  • Yes, its a dry heat but still hot LOL. Just might not sweat as much or feel that stickiness but your skin will dry out as will your lips.

    So maybe add chapstick to the list LOL.
