What's going on in vegas march 18-25??

I've done google search but I don't see these dates and when looking at hotels a banner pops up and says there is a lot going on in vegas during your dates so room prices are higher.

March Madness for the NCAA basketball tournament brings large crowds March 19-23, with games going on the 20th-23rd. Thousands of people, including myself, go to LV to watch and bet on the games at viewing parties and sportbooks and sports bars etc. Those are known dates and are booked a long time in advance and rates will most likely not be coming down.

Most of the Strip hotels will be busy.

Off Strip will be your best option. If you want to stay on Strip, check room rates for the hotels you are interested in staying. The one with the cheapest rooms will most likely be the least busy.

I would say stay away from Vegas those dates if you don't like crowds.

It's a busy month in Vegas for sure.

There's that huge ConExpo earlier in the month (150k people), March Madness, Spring Break, a NASCAR race, and the NHRA Summit Nationals drag races March 28-30.

If you're screening hotel rates, use their "rate calendar" that shows you the price for each day but it shows the whole month on a single screen - makes it real easy to find the slower/cheaper periods.

Definitely stay away from hotels that have good or big sportsbooks. Also stay away from places that guys typically go to, like the bars, clubs, strip clubs, buffets, etc. I highly doubt other places will be crowded like the fancy schmany romantic restaurants, the malls, the shows, the jewelry stores, the outlets, the spas, etc., etc.

Every hotel is booked up to 70% atm. Super bowl and MM are the two biggest betting weekends of the year. It will crazy everywhere on the strip. Bars, sports book, will be packed from 9-9 each day(3/20--3/23).

Yes, places like bars, sportsbooks, strip clubs will be crazy. Places that guys typically go to. But again, not places like the malls, spas, shows, fancy restaurants, etc.
