We've gone to LV over Labor Day a couple of times and last year we went the first week of August. Yes it's hot, but we had a blast. Spent a lot of time at the pool, did any outside walking in the evening.

I have and will be going again in August. However, we spend most of our days by the pool. If we walk, it's early morning or night. Mostly we take cabs. All of the hotels are airconditioned.

Not crazy at all. Was there late August of '03 with temps in the high 90's and low 100's each day. Loved it. Made the AC and pool water feel that much better.

Yes it's the Devil's Inferno, but what's Sin City without the heat? I love Vegas in the summer.

August is a fantastic time to go. We go every year in the summer. Lost of pool,cold drinks and late afternoon naps so that we can go out on the strip at night. Just make sure that your sandels don't have black rubber soles, cause they melt to your feet

Of course it's hot. It's the desert in the middle of summer. But go have fun. The casinos have A/C and cold drinks.

no problem...I normally don't even know what the weather is outside the casinos...if you are a gambler then the weather is a non factor

We always go during the summer months due to work constraints and it's also CHEAPER to go during the hottest 2 months of the year! We went in May for the first time last year, and I actually prefer the hotter summer months (gauranteed sun bathing/swimming weather). We limit the walking to morning and evenings, and stay pool side or inside a casino during the afternoons. It does feel like a wall of hot air hits you when your first walk outside, but you get used to it. It's not like you're out there for long periods of time anyways. We're off in July this summer! Can't wait myself!!
