When to Visit Henderson, Nevada
Though Henderson doesn't provide the same experience that Las Vegas does, their proximity means their tourism seasons are linked. Summer temperatures easily hit the 100s, and winters drop into the 50s, so if you want to catch the best weather, visit in spring or fall. Winter in the Vegas metropolitan area tends to be crowded thanks to the holidays, as does summer, because of school breaks. If you do visit in summer, expect room rates to be higher.
