What do you mean by best? Price? weather? crowds? A lot depends on what you are looking for. If you are a young, single female, March Madness would be a great time to go. Give us more information on what you are looking for in your trip to Vegas.

Couple in mid 40's -50's, want to see a few shows. Have gone in Nov 2000, got married there, then wnet back in early Feb. was a little cool then, so was thinking of last week in March. But surely don't want to be there during March madness week.

Any input would be great.

Thanks, Liz

If the weather is important to you and you don't want to visit when it's a little cool then even the last week of March is still unpredictable. You're a few weeks away from warm temps being guaranteed.

The first two rounds of March Madness (March 20-23) are when it gets really crazy around the sports books and bars showing the games. The Regionals a week later aren't as crowded. However it might (other than high hotel rates) not affect a couple like you as much as you think. The guys who hit town to watch and bet on the basketball games aren't likely to hang out in the same places as you guys.

By the end of March Madness, (end of March), it shouldn't be too bad. If you go during the week, it won't be bad at all.

President's Day weekend is also busy.

Thanks for input to all. Hoping to be going mid March. Never went to any shows last two time there and I'm looking forward to doing that. Hope Hubby doesn't change his mind about going...

March Madness often extends into the first week of April (check the NCAA website). Are you saying you don't like crowds or don't like basketball? It was GREAT fun to watch the games in a sportsbook with hundreds of screaming fans.

Go to a website of the hotel you want to stay at. Click on the availability calendar and you will get the best real idea of when is the least expensive time.

Caution - Nascar is at the end of February and the first few days of March and then prices go up from there with St Pats and March Madness.

I wouldn't worry about the Nascar - You'll know about it hahahhaha :D I just tried to book on the 11th 12th March night at the Caesars and it was around 1200usd/night LOL.

Other places are similar. I imagine Nascar fans must be really, really, really rich :D
