Is June a Good Month to Visit Vegas?

The first two weeks of June are a good time to visit Las Vegas as the extreme summer temperatures haven’t arrived yet. The second half of the month is great for those who can tolerate or enjoy the dry heat. It’s also excellent pool weather throughout June.

Weather

As Las Vegas is located in the Mojave Desert, Nevada, expect to receive high temperatures during June, and slightly cooler evenings and mornings, once the sun has set or not risen yet.

The weather during June in Las Vegas is hot and sunny. The daily average maximum temperatures increase throughout the month ranging from 94°F (34°C) to 103°F (39°C). The humidity is low and it rarely rains with an average of 0.1 inches.

Average high temperatures during June:

  • Early June: 94°F (34°C)
  • Mid-June: 98°F (37°C)
  • Late June: 103°F (39°C)

💡 Temperatures at the beginning of June are considerably cooler than later in June. If you do not enjoy the heat should we suggest visiting during early June to avoid the high temperatures.

Expect a constant supply of sunshine during June, with average high temperatures of around 99°F(38°C). There is no rain expected and little to no breeze so gets quite dry during the day.

Typical weather progression during a day in June:

  • Early (7:30 AM): 83°F
  • Noon (4:00 PM): 102°F
  • Evening (9:00 PM): 95°F

Before 10 AM, temperatures are generally less than 90 degrees and bearable for most people. After that, the arid heat turns on like an inescapable oven. This can be especially noticeable when getting into a car that’s been parked in the sun.

Is June Too Hot?

June is partly cooler than July and August in Las Vegas but already very hot. The temperatures increase throughout the month and exceed 100°F (38°C) at the end of June. Additionally, it will be as hot as in the upcoming peak summer months if a heatwave happens.

Whether you can tolerate or even enjoy Vegas’ dry summer heat, especially towards the end of the month, depends on the temperatures you are used to and your personal preferences. Read our activity guide further below with tips for appropriate activities morning, afternoon, and evening.

💡 If you’ve rented a car to get around or brought your own, try to find shaded parking in June. Additionally, use a sunshade for the windshield, and roll all the windows down to let the heat out when you first get in. Be aware that you can be badly burned by a seat buckle if you’re not careful!

Tip: Hailing rideshare or taxi can be much more comfortable since you’ll be getting into an already air-conditioned car.

Is It Cold at Night?

During June in Las Vegas it cools down a little at night but it doesn’t get cold. Temperatures fall to around 77°F (25°C) at nighttime on average. In early June it can be as cold as 70°F (21°C) during the night.

Humidity

During June the humidity in Las Vegas is at its lowest at 15%, which means that the air will be the driest during this month. Most visitors can handle the dry heat much better than hot and humid conditions.

Rainfall

June is also the driest month of the year for Las Vegas. It rarely rains and any rainfall tends to be very light spontaneous showers. The average rainfall is 0.1 inches and rarely exceeds 0.5 inches. So you can relax and enjoy your trip without needing to pack an umbrella or a raincoat.

 

What to Wear / What to Pack

A summer evening in Vegas

During June in Las Vegas, plan to wear short-sleeve t-shirts and shorts during the day. A sun hat is essential for the heat. Pack swimwear for the pools and light layers for the evenings. When visiting nightclubs, ladies wear dresses and men dark jeans and a button-down shirt.

There is no official dress code when visiting shows or casinos and some visitors don’t dress up at all. However, for men, it’s appropriate to wear formal jeans or dress pants, and button-down shirts. The ladies should opt for an evening dress or a cocktail dress.

💡 The sun is extremely powerful during June so bear this in mind if you plan to do a lot of walking. Packing a refillable water bottle is essential. If you are planning on outside activities and day trips, bring a sun hat and suncream to avoid heatstroke.

Due to the very warm weather in June, most visitors save space in their suitcases and leave the sweaters at home. However, we suggest bringing a light sweater if you get cold easily, as the air conditions in casinos and restaurants are on full blast.

Things to Do | Mornings – Afternoons – Evenings

Due to the very hot weather, especially from mid-June until the end of the month, you should plan your activities according to the time of day. Planning outdoor activities during mid-day and early afternoon will mean that you are outside during the hottest and driest part of the day, so bear this in mind when booking excursions.

Mornings

Outdoor Activities: Outdoor activities may be tempting, but keep an eye on the weather forecast and make sure you prepare accordingly. Golfing or hiking is no fun when you are feeling the effects of heat exhaustion. Keep these activities to the very early morning.

Afternoon (Outside)

Pools and Dayclubs: Hot June weather is perfect for a swim at one of the many amazing dayclubs around Vegas. Some will allow you to enter without a fee if you’re staying at the hotel, but many will have a cover charge or ask that you buy a cabana for a certain amount of time. Dayclubs encourage day drinking but remember to stay hydrated if you are drinking in the sun. Dehydration and heat don’t mix well.

Alternatives: If the loud music and party vibes aren’t your thing, you’ll surely be able to find another pool that suits you better. There are several pools with real sand beaches, and a few toptional (topless) pools, and if you’re looking for something really unique, the Golden Nugget pool has a clear waterslide that goes through a shark tank!

Whatever type of pool you decide to visit, wearing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses while lounging is highly recommended.

Waterparks: Las Vegas has some really fun waterparks which are a brilliant way to cool off in the June heat. Cowabunga Bay is one of the best waterparks, with multiple slides, a children’s area, and restaurants inside the park. It offers season passes which allow priority entry, free parking, and discounts on food.

Afternoon (Inside)

Shows/Shopping: Escape the heat and enjoy one of the many (air-conditioned) indoor attractions. Catch an afternoon show, visit a museum, or shop at a number of indoor malls. A lot of the shopping malls are connected to the hotels and casinos meaning you don’t have to step foot outside to enjoy yourself.

The Mob Museum: Explore the secret side of Las Vegas and visit the Mob Museum located in downtown Las Vegas. A brilliant option to avoid the Las Vegas afternoon heat. Visit the mob museum to discover the interesting hidden history of how Las Vegas evolved and learn about the impact of organized crime on American Society. You can book interactive tours about the mob or haunted ghost tours.

Mandalay Bay Shark Reef Aquarium:

Visit sea turtles, sharks, piranhas, jellyfish, and a Kimono dragon while experiencing an underwater world at the Mandalay Bay hotel. If you are a certified diver you can also swim in the shipwreck exhibit and meet some of the aquarium’s inhabitants up close.

Ethel M Chocolates: Sample some delicious chocolate, take a tour around the chocolate factory, and explore the four-acre cactus garden located outside this unique chocolate shop. It is also home to the largest collection of cacti. The garden lights up at night so it is a brilliant evening activity for chocolate lovers.

In the Evening

The Strip/Clubs: After sunset, the temperatures drop and it’s the perfect time to walk the strip and do all that Vegas is known for. Take in all the sights on the strip, and visit some of the more famous hotels and nightclubs. Remember that many nightclubs have a strict dress code and it is expected in Vegas to dress to impress, so bring a few glamorous outfits if you intend on hitting the clubs. Unless you plan on going to a day-club turned nightclub where you can rock your swimsuit for a night swim!

Walking / Getting Around: Depending on where you are staying, walking around Vegas is a great way to see some of the amazing attractions, otherwise, you can take a taxi or an Uber over to the strip and start exploring.

You can also use the Las Vegas Monoline to travel up and down the strip and take you to some of the most popular hotels and casinos.

Just note that the strip is pretty long so you may want to consider your footwear if you plan on doing a lot of walking.

Area15, an indoor attraction just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, provides larger-than-life art installations, virtual reality experiences, unusual and intriguing experiences, and events. It’s similar to a shopping mall, except instead of the usual stores, you’ll find artists and unique things to interact with. This is a must-visit in June!

The Neon Museum

This attraction was built in the 1930s, and there are now over 200 neon signs on the spacious property.

The Neon Museum is a great activity but as it’s outside we don’t recommend a visit towards the end of June during the afternoon.
