Most of the year you can bet on the weather being hot or mild. Remember that Hotel rates are lowest when the weather is considered extremely hot, but don't stay away just because the weather is hot, there are plenty of pools to cool off in and remember It's Dry Heat!
With more shows to choose from than any other City in the World, You might feel overwhelmed deciding on one. But if You narrow Your preference to a category, You can make Your decision much easier. If Your interest is in a Cirque du soleil show, why browse through the Comedy and Adult shows? If You want to see Britney or Mariah or JLo just browse the Concerts and headliners.
Don't like huge theaters and big crowds? Choose an afternoon Show or a half price show.
A Dinner and Show combo is a great value and saves time to do other things that day.
