Las Vegas in September [Weather, What to Wear, Things to Do]

Are you thinking about coming to Las Vegas in September?

It is a great time to visit Las Vegas because the busy summer months are over.

September is the beginning of the fall season and when most people return to work and school after enjoying their summer vacations. 

Therefore, you can expect far fewer people in Las Vegas in September. That means booking reservations for shows and attractions should be much easier.

You’ll also enjoy the fall season’s cooler temperatures as you walk outside and explore the city and beyond. The lowest temperatures get down to 75°F during the first two weeks of September and 65°F during the next two weeks. 

Feel free to dress casually for your Las Vegas trip in September. Some examples of casual dress include shorts, jeans, t-shirts, sweatpants, and sneakers.

There is no need to wear heavy clothes because the weather is neither cold nor hot. So, you can get away with wearing lighter clothing with short sleeves and short pants while remaining comfortable outside. 

Are you eager to find exciting things to do in Las Vegas in September? Below are the top five shows and attractions to experience in Las Vegas during any week in September.  

1) The Rat Pack is Back

Do you wish to experience the glory days of 1960s Las Vegas in September?

If so, you should attend The Rat Pack is Back at the Copa Room of Tuscany Suites. It is a musical tribute show dedicated to the three music legends from Old Las Vegas: Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin.

There is also a 7-piece orchestra to provide energetic music for the crowd as well. Be sure to check out the other shows in Las Vegas in September.

The Rat Pack is Back features three talented impersonators who accurately capture the appearance, voice, wardrobe, and personality of the three legendary singers.

They will sing classic Rat Pack songs like “Candy Man” and “That’s Amore.” As you watch the performances, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the most iconic time in Las Vegas history.

2) High Roller Observation Wheel

The High Roller Observation Wheel at the LINQ Hotel stands approximately 550 feet tall over the Las Vegas Strip.

Guests enter a glass cabin on the ground with 360-degree views of the city in every direction. Each glass cabin can hold a few dozen people and feature visual and audio entertainment to enhance the experience.

The glass cabin only takes about 15 minutes to reach the top of the wheel from the ground. Once your cabin makes it to the top of the 550-foot observation wheel, you’ll have fantastic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Las Vegas Valley surrounding you.

The High Roller is a perfect ride for people who want a calm and relaxing experience rather than a fast and thrilling one.

A daytime ride allows you to see the mountainous and barren desert terrain in the distance, while a nighttime ride gives you the beautiful sight of neon lights on all the buildings on the Strip. 

3) Magic Shows

September is an exciting month to see magic shows in Las Vegas because some of the best ones are performing throughout the city.

For instance, you could attend strictly magic-focused shows like David Copperfield and Criss Angel Mindfreak, which are two of the most popular magic shows in Las Vegas. 

However, there are also shows that blend comedy and magic together. Some great examples are Mac King Comedy Magic Show, Laughternoon with Adam London, Mike Hammer Comedy Magic, Murray the Magician, and Nathan Burton Comedy Magic Show. You’ve never seen comedy magicians as talented as the ones hosting these shows in Las Vegas.

4) Helicopter Tour

One of the best ways to see Las Vegas is from the air.

Taking a helicopter tour of the Las Vegas Strip and Fremont Street will make you feel like a celebrity overlooking the city from above.

Helicopter tours are available day and night so that you can see the beautiful terrain in the day and the picturesque neon lights on the buildings at night. Perhaps you could take both tours!

In addition, some Las Vegas helicopter tours can take you to places outside the city, such as the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. You may want to consider taking these tours in September because the weather is calm and the sights are beautiful. 

5) Red Rock Canyon Hiking Trails

The cool September weather in Las Vegas should encourage you to spend more time outdoors.

A great place to spend outdoor time near Las Vegas is on the hiking trails of Red Rock Canyon, which is only a 30-minute drive from the city. These hiking trails give you exquisite views of everything from the red rock formations of the canyon to the barren desert landscape outside of it. 

There are numerous hiking trails at Red Rock Canyon, some longer than others. If you are new to the canyon, consider taking the shorter trails or going on a guided tour with a professional tour guide. That way, you know where you’re going and won’t go too far out of the way. 

For locals looking for a unique experience, consider exploring “Las Vegas for Locals,” a guide that offers insider tips and hidden gems tailored specifically for residents.


September is a fabulous time to visit Las Vegas because of the cool weather, entertaining shows, and memorable activities and attractions. In addition, you can dress casually for the trip because Las Vegas venues don’t have strict dress codes, and the outdoor air is cool and comfortable. 

So, what are you waiting for? Book your reservations for the September shows and activities you wish to experience in Las Vegas.
