I love the diversity of your information about everything Las Vegas, including links to the public pools, the weather, the housing market and more!
What's Happening Vegas is a one-stop-shop of info. about EVERYTHING Las Vegas! I want to express to everyone that Vegas only has two types of weather HOT or COLD, yes COLD. Plan on a light jacket at least in the winter months. It does have it's share of wind as well. After the sun goes down people often remark how chilly it feels even in spring and early fall when the wind kicks up. This is because there is very little moisture. The temperature drops rapidly. Best!
