We love Las Vegas in December. Not only is the weather nice and cool (and even cold at times), which is perfect for outdoor adventures, but the holiday events make the city extra magical. We’ll cover some of the holiday events in this post, but be sure to check out our more detailed post here.
Early December is relatively quiet, but as you get closer to the holidays, it does get busier so hotel rates aren’t any lower.
This was by far the most popular spot we visited in Redwood National Park. If you feel like you’re in a scene of Jurrasic Park while walking through Fern Canyon, that’s because you are. They filmed scenes from The Lost World here.
The roughly one-mile trail follows Home Creek through the forest. You walk through modest streams while the vertical walls are covered in a variety of ferns (there are five different kinds) and other moisture-loving plants and mosses.
You can hike as little as 0.5 miles to see the pretty parts or up to 5 miles through the whole canyon. You can even connect it to trails that take you out of the canyon to see it from above.
Getting to the easiest trailhead is straightforward, but you have to drive on a dirt road for about 6.5 miles. There are a few spots where you have to navigate over streams and holes, one of which looked sketchy. Our sedan was able to make it through but only after following the example of another smaller car.
Other people got out of their cars trying to suss out if they could make it. If it recently rained, the streams may be deeper and unpassable. Check out driving directions here and road/trail conditions here.

We love the November weather in Las Vegas. It’s cold in the morning and evenings, but during the day it’s warm enough to be outside basking in the sun.
If you visit, layers are important so you can adjust as the temperatures change throughout the day. See what to pack below.
Overall, it’s a quiet month for visitors in November, so you can find some deals on hotels. As you get closer to Thanksgiving, prices will increase.
We took an intro class, and it is a serious workout. It was so much fun, I even considered getting a pole for home (this is the one they recommend).
Sunny’s started as a small swimwear line sold at pool parties in 2017. After adding exotic dancewear, the business started to grow exponentially, which then led to a bigger space and offering pole fitness classes.
In January 2020, they moved to the Downtown Container Park and is a fitness studio and boutique. You can book a class, rent space to practice, or shop for dance and swimwear.
Cozy up and get a drink at the Minus5 Ice Bar where everything around you is covered in ice and your drinks are served in glasses made of ice. It’s the perfect escape from the Vegas heat.
This is our favorite location so far with icescapes of penguins, polar bears, and even a Star Wars section.
When we went, there were times it was empty, and there were times it was packed. Most people stayed for a drink and some photo opps, so the flow was sporadic.
They provide a jacket, hat, and gloves to keep you warm, but proper shoes are your responsibility. Read our tips below.
