Christmas in Las Vegas

My husband and I will be travelling to Las Vegas over Christmas. I know it is a busy locked down should our plans be? Should I make reservations for every dinner, or will it be reasonable to expect a walk up table (aside from Christmas day of course)?

  1. Actually, Las Vegas is typically pretty slow (by Vegas standards) between Christmas and New Years Eve. However, if you are "locked in" on restaurants, reservations would be a good idea.

    1. We've spent Christmas in LV twice in the last few years, and on our last visit things seemed quite busy on Christmas day and the next few days after the holiday, with a bit of a lull on the 28th and 29th before it started building up again for New Year's. One thing you may want to be aware of is that some restaurants will have "special" fixed menus on offer on Christmas Eve/Christmas day. We prefer to avoid things like this, since they are often overpriced and offer limited choices. If you have similar preferences, it's not a bad idea to call the restaurant and make sure they will be serving their full menu.

      Have fun!

      1. For good restaurants, make reservations. For the rest, plans can be loose.
