If you are planning to spend a quiet Christmas in Las Vegas this year, you will not be alone. According to a recent PR from Priceline.com – Las Vegas is the top destination for travel this Christmas season.
Christmas in Las Vegas is magical with an abundance of holiday cheer and dazzling Christmas lights and beautiful holiday decorations.
Many people want to escape the chilling cold weather and desire a warmer destination to enjoy their Christmas vacation. Las Vegas is a great choice but even though summer temps sizzle over 100 degrees, don’t expect that in December. Las Vegas can of course be warm, but don’t be surprised for much cooler weather. Even snow is possible, but rather rare.
