    Alexander, 30 years old was there in May

    We visited Las Vegas during a round trip through the southwest of the USA (with bathing extension in Hawaii), May turned out to be the perfect time to travel. At all stations we had great weather, also Las Vegas and the canyons were pleasantly sunny in May, but not too hot, so that also hikes and exploration tours were possible.

    Weather Rating: 5 stars – Excellent

    Daniel, 32 years old was there in September

    We had real dream weather during the whole trip in Las Vegas and at the Grand Canyon. Lots of sun, really nice and warm (and still bearable due to the low humidity), simply super.

    Weather Rating: 5 stars – Excellent
