When you begin packing for your Las Vegas trip, consider what you will be doing, where you will dine, and if you will be enjoying indoor or outdoor concerts and nightclubs. Once you know what you’ll be doing during summer in Vegas, figuring out what to wear in this desert city is easy. Don’t stress about it too much, because in Vegas pretty much anything goes!

When it comes to making a Las Vegas packing list you know the basics– clothes, shoes, electronics – but there are some things that you should keep in mind when packing for a summer in Vegas.

Protection from the Elements

On average, it’s sunny 294 days a year in Las Vegas so making sure you pack for warm weather is a must. Figuring out your Las Vegas packing list is easy when you include the following in your suitcase or carry-on for your next Las Vegas trip.

  • A hat
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Sun glasses
  • Sun block
  • Chapstick

Mind Your Feet

Packing those five-inch heels will be great for the nightclub but make sure you include good walking shoes in your Las Vegas packing list, or shoes to change into before or after the club.  You don’t want to be the girl carrying her heels while walking barefoot on the cement! It’s not advisable or safe.

For your Las Vegas trip, it helps to bring a variety of shoe ware for the extent of your trip. Pack flip flops for the pool and running shoes if you’re planning to hit your favorite Vegas fitness centers. Be sure to schedule in a quick 30-minutes of movement each day. Your body will thank you!

Sleep Kit

It’s no secret that Vegas is a 24-hour city, but when you’re sharing a hotel hallway with people who may be up at all hours, having the time of their lives, you’ll want two things with you: earplugs and a sleep mask. Including these items in your Las Vegas packing list will assure that you get the rest you deserve so you can take on another day in this city. When looking for the best place to lay your head, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has a variety of accommodations to enjoy your Las Vegas trip night and day.

Hangover Kit

Las Vegas is, after all, a party town. Be prepared with an over-the-counter pain reliever that’s not acetaminophen and Alka-Seltzer or Ginger Ale. Pedialyte is a great way to replenish electrolytes after a day spent on the Strip or partying poolside. While these items are available in the hotel shops, you can save yourself a trip to the store and the additional expense if you bring your own during your summer in Vegas.  Including a premeditated hangover kit in your Las Vegas packing list is a sure way to enjoy every day in this city, no matter what you and your group get into during the weekend.

For the Club and the Pools

Before starting your Las Vegas packing list, you’ll want to check which pool or nightclub you’re planning to attend as they do have dress codes. When it comes to dayclubs, always bring a cover-up or robe for leaving the pool area and heading to your room. As for the nightclub, aim to impress when it comes to your head to toe attire. Most will not allow denim, baggy pants, caps, t-shirts or jerseys. Determining what to wear in Vegas during the summer months is easier now that you know what to expect when it comes to heat and dress codes.
