What to pack-- Crazy weather!

Going in 6 days, and the weather is VERY different from my first Vegas trip last year. That was September, and I knew it would be hot, no question about it. This time, it looks like it will be in the 50s during the day and 30s at night. That means packing a lot more bulky clothing...ugh!

Staying at THEhotel, and I heard they have a coin laundry on site? If so, maybe we'll bring just a few sweatshirts, etc and do a mid-week laundry run. Otherwise we'll have to bring two suitcases. Any experience with onsite laundry at MB or THEhotel? Also, will the casinos still be cool, or do they crank up the heat?

Dress is layers. T shirts, light weight jackets, etc. Sweatshirts is they have a zipper, otherwise, you might be too hot in the casinos. Just MHO.

I was there last week. It was cool. Layers are best. My lightweight down filled vest was my best friend!

You do not have to pack bulky clothes when going in the winter. I never do and I have been in Vegas during the winter too many times to count. Think layers- tops with long sleeves, a hoodie/sweater and a jacket (which I wear on the plane). That will see you through any kind of weather. It has always worked for me- always! If fact, I never even bother looking at the forecast since I know what works.

I just have to ask - why is it crazy weather? It's winter, not late summer, pretty much everywhere in America, including in Las Vegas.

I am not one who begrudges people their weather questions and you have gotten good advice from those who have just returned. Take layers and you will be fine. Have a great time - from the title of your post I thought they were having tornados or something over there!!

Just pack like you normally would (maybe substitute shorts for pants) + a jacket. Problem solved.

I'm going in 12 days. I'm dressing for Spring (short sleeves, capris and open toe sandals). I'm bringing a sweater and jacket. If it gets that cold, I'll buy a sweatshirt :)

Generic packing advice... pack light, but include a credit card just in case you need something else.
