Ways to Celebrate the End of Summer in Las Vegas
Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, but the real end to summer is at the end of September. And even past that, our city is lucky to have summer weather through October with average highs in the mid-80s until things cool down in November. As fall gets closer, this is prime time to live up the rest of summer and summer weather in Las Vegas. Read on for things to do before summer ends while visiting Vegas.
Get a Drink at a Rooftop Bar
With summer coming closer to an end, this is the perfect time to visit a rooftop bar. The summer heat is a bit more tolerable in September, especially at night when it cools down even more. And with days starting to get shorter, that means sunsets happen sooner! Grab a drink at a rooftop bar to enjoy the weather and see the transition from day to night. Legacy Club has a beautiful view of Las Vegas, and the views at sunset are just as beautiful as the views at night. And once it hits October with hot days and cool nights, grab a seat by the fire pits to stay warm.
Hang Out at the Pool
Vegas pools are some of the best in the world, and summer is the perfect time to lounge poolside. With delicious drinks, luxurious cabanas, and world-class entertainment, this isn’t your usual pool day. Hang out at Stadium Swim® to have the time of your life. If you’re a sports fan, you can catch the big games on the 143-foot screen and place your bets at the Circa | Sports kiosks. On top of that, the pool features 337 chaise lounges, 38 daybeds, 30 cabanas, and 6 pools to enjoy. And once chilly fall rolls around, the 6 pools are heated for year-round enjoyment!
Order Some Frozen Drinks
With hot weather continuing through October, it’s the perfect setting for some frozen drinks to cool you down. You’ve probably seen those famous frozen yard drinks Vegas is known for, and they’re just as tasty as they look. Stop by Circa Bar, D Bar, or OneBar on Fremont Street or Stadium Swim for some of the best frozen cocktails you’ll find in Vegas – along with some dancing servers and flair bartenders. If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, stop by Victory Burger for some of their killer milkshakes that will surely remind you of your childhood.
Pack a Picnic for a Hike
Picnics and summer go hand in hand. Take a little trip outside of the city to enjoy some of the beautiful natural landscapes around Las Vegas. With places like Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, Springs Preserve, and Mt Charleston, there are a number of places you can explore. For some true picnic vibes, order some to-go deli sandwiches from Saginaw’s Delicatessen along with sides of potato salad, coleslaw, and fruit salad. With beautiful views and delicious food, you’ll have the perfect end-of-summer picnic.

Rock Out at an Outdoor Concert
Vegas has a lot of shows you can attend year-round inside, but there’s something special about outdoor concerts in the summer. In Downtown Las Vegas, there are plenty of opportunities to catch some great artists this summer. Check out the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center for outdoor music events like Punk Rock Bowling, Bassrush Elevated, Reggae Rise Up, and EDC Week. Or, head to the Fremont Street Experience for the free concert series that will be hosting acts like Generation Radio, Barenaked Ladies, and George Thorogood.
Visit Lake Mead
There are a few more weeks left of Summer to enjoy the water at Lake Mead before the chilly weather arrives. You can take a boat tour around the lake or set up some beach towels on the popular Boulder Beach to get a nice end-of-summer tan. The beach gets crowded quickly, especially as people fit in their last summer visits, so if you want to enjoy a hidden cove or more secluded beach, rent a kayak and venture off on a day away from the crowds. You can even kayak at night to embrace the beautiful summer night weather.
Just because Labor Day is over doesn’t mean summer in Las Vegas is over! We’ll be keeping the summer vibes going for a bit longer as long as the sun keeps shining and the weather stays warm. Make sure you check out these things to do before summer ends in Vegas to make the most of the season before things start to cool down in the desert.
