July or August?

I'd like to visit Vegas in July or August next year to escape some of the Melbourne Winter. Which month is less busy?

I also like it really, really hot. The hotter the better. I assume August is as hot as July?

I visited last month and the weekends (and pool area), were quite feral.

Thanks for the advice!

My wife &I go the 3rd week of August every year. We always get great rates & it's always hot. It's in the 100's every year. That's Probably the reason for the great rates, besides the children going back to school. Hope this helps.

Flip a coin, not much difference weather wise or crowd wise between the 2 months. In 2013 in July there were 3,479,490 visitors and in Aug 3,370,006. You wouldnt be able to tell the difference. Weekends on the Strip are busy year round weekdays are slow which reflects in room rates Fri and Sat nights vs Sun-Thurs, Weekdays the crowd is older weekends younger.

I always go in August and tend to go Sundays to Friday or Saturday and it's not too crowded. Yes, it's hot but taking precautions like drinking lots of water and not spending hour after hour outside without a break of air conditioning. I love the dry heat too!

The end of August is a little quieter as many kids have to go back to school. Temps are about the same, both are in monsoon season, although this lessens near the end of August.
