Are you planning a trip to Las Vegas in September? If so, you will have a great experience, because September is a fabulous time to visit Las Vegas. It is the first month of autumn, so the temperatures get cooler while the outdoors becomes more comfortable for tourists. 

In September, you can experience many entertaining shows, attractions, adventures, rides, and more in Las Vegas. The month has fewer tourists than August, because most return to work or school after their summer vacations. This means you may enjoy slightly fewer crowds and more freedom to move around quickly and gracefully. Below are the top ways to have a great time in Las Vegas in September.

Musical Tribute Shows

Musical tribute shows have become synonymous with Las Vegas. They pay homage to legendary singers and bands that frequently performed in Las Vegas when they were alive. These performers included Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Prince, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and more.

Now you can see talented impersonators resurrect these legendary performers at several musical tribute Las Vegas shows in September. The impersonators do a great job recapturing the music legends’ voices, personalities, styles, wardrobes, and energy. They will make you think you are seeing the actual performers on stage. 

The best musical tribute shows performing in Las Vegas in September include Legends in Concert, Australian Bee Gees, All Motown, All Shook Up, Michael Jackson ONE, Michael Jackson Live, Purple Reign, Potted Potter, The Rat Pack is Back, Soul of Motown, and The Bronx Wanderers. 

Las Vegas Motor Speedway

The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is more than a place where you can see professional race car drivers driving around at top speed on a race track. It is also where inexperienced laypeople can purchase the opportunity to operate exotic vehicles, supercars, and race cars on the tracks. 

How would you like to race a Porsche GT, Ferrari, or Lamborghini at top speed around a race track? Don’t worry if you don’t have any race car driving experience because a professional driver will guide you on the radio as you’re in the car. It is a thrilling experience for motorsports enthusiasts or anyone who has always dreamt about racing an exotic car at top speed without getting a speeding ticket.

The Mob Museum

The Mob Museum is an iconic museum dedicated to the most infamous mobsters from the past one hundred years of American history. You will see artifacts, galleries, and biographical information of legendary mobsters like James “Whitey” Bulger, Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo, Meyer Lansky, and Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel.

The Mob Museum has three stories and a basement. The museum building was previously a courthouse that prosecuted mobsters and questioned witnesses. Many witnesses were local Las Vegas casino owners with personal connections to infamous mob bosses nationwide. 

The Mob Museum is personal to Las Vegas, despite featuring exhibits of mobsters from other cities like Chicago and New York. The thing is that many of those mobsters made their impact on Las Vegas and helped turn it into the city it is today. 

Helicopter Tours

Several Las Vegas companies offer various helicopter tours to guests. One of the most popular is the nighttime helicopter tour overlooking the illuminating Las Vegas Strip and Fremont Street. Looking at all the neon lights and bright buildings under the night sky is something you will remember forever.

Daytime helicopter tours can take you to tourist attractions like the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon outside the city. The great thing is that a helicopter can travel to these locations about ten times faster than a bus or car. So if you don’t want to spend hours driving to these locations roundtrip, the helicopter tour is more efficient for your Las Vegas travel schedule.  

Marriage Can Be Murder

Marriage Can Be Murder is an interactive murder mystery and comedy show at the Showroom of the D Las Vegas Hotel. It is a unique show where the audience members have to try and solve a murder mystery as they watch it. Each guest receives a game card to identify the killer, the victim, and the killer’s motive. Some guests even get roles in the show and become part of the murder mystery. 

Paris Hotel Eiffel Tower

The Paris Las Vegas Hotel is a French-themed hotel with a recreated Eiffel Tower structure next to it on the outside. The tower is about 50% the size of the actual Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, but guests can still go up to the observation deck on the 46th floor. When looking out from the observation deck, it is like Paris has merged with Las Vegas. The sensation is exhilarating.

September is a fabulous time to visit Las Vegas, because the summer tourists have gone home, and the shows and entertainment have remained. You can enjoy more iconic hotel shows, attractions, tours, adventures, and museums without as much demand from other tourists. But you should still make your reservations in advance to ensure you get the date and time you prefer for the experiences you would like.
