Important Reminder About The Heat
When in Las Vegas, take advantage of downtimes to cool off from the summer heat. It is not unusual for temperatures to exceed 100 degrees during Summer. This can be dangerous, especially if you are from an area in the country or around the world that is not used to such high temperatures. For locals, it’s important to make sure to get your A/C unit checked in preparation for the Summer heat. It’s better to be thoroughly prepared than to be stuck in the scorching summer heat with no air conditioning.
Use the Monorail to maximize your cooling off time. You can sit and relax while looking at the Strip and determining where your next stop will be. Indulge in a show, take in some shopping, or taste a craft beer from one of our many brewing companies.
Make sure that you always stay properly hydrated. Dehydration is often the most serious problem associated with the heat so fill up on that H2O!
