How to Beat The Las Vegas Heat

Las Vegas is known for its scorching summer temperatures, delicious food, and of course the Las Vegas Strip. With the temperatures staying high through October, people often ask locals how to beat the Las Vegas heat without breaking the bank. 

How to Beat the Las Vegas Heat

Las Vegas is a mecca and has just about anything you could imagine. A few locals spots we recommend for escaping the heat: 


Firefly* Tapas Kitchen + Bar 

With a gorgeous and inviting atmosphere off the strip, Firefly* offers Spanish style tapas or ‘small bites’. The extensive menu allows diners to order a few dishes and share them with the table, family-style. Stay for a while and enjoy a cold drink. If you visit Firefly* on a Friday night, stay late for Latin Night and watch the restaurant light up with vibrant Latin dancers. Catch us on a Saturday night and enjoy lounge Saturday’s with great music and even better company. Here during the week? Enjoy happy hour from 3-6 pm every day!

Tacos & Beer

Did someone say guacamole? Although Tacos & Beer serves up some of the best tacos and beer in Las Vegas, they have so much more to offer. With a great selection of appetizers, Mexican dishes, and amazing cocktails, you can’t go wrong.

Seriously…this is an underrated & easy tip to beat the Las Vegas heat. Staying in a hotel? Make sure to stock up on water bottles and take one with you wherever you go. If you happen to forget your water and don’t want to pay crazy strip prices, look around for the pharmacies on the strip for lower prices! 


Order In

When in Vegas, staying in your hotel room might sound silly but take advantage of your sweet view, and order in! Both Firefly* and Tacos & Beer are available on GrubHub, as well as many other local off-strip options. Use a food delivery app to avoid crazy dine-in room service prices.
