Here’s a secret: Fall is the best time to visit Las Vegas.

Not only are there 70-degree days and fewer crowds, but if you visit Las Vegas this fall, there are also some pretty great deals on shows, tours and museums. Check out our top picks below and be sure to book by October 31st so that you can receive $15 off any order of $100 or more. All you have to do is use the code FALL15.
All American Helicopter Tour
Driving to the Grand Canyon is so overrated. This fall, fly there in style on a helicopter tour. Here’s how it works: You’ll be picked up from your hotel and transported to the Sundance Helicopter headquarters, where you’ll take flight above the city. After leaving the neon of Las Vegas, you’ll pass over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, eventually landing at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon where you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch and champagne. When you’re done, you’ll fly back to Las Vegas. The whole adventure takes just 3.5 hours, leaving you plenty of time for fun on the Strip.
R.U.N. by Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil’s long-awaited and first-ever live action thriller is a heart-pounding performance that pairs terrifying stunts with an enthralling narrative. The show, which takes place at the Luxor, is mesmerizing, dangerous and completely unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Be one of the first people to see R.U.N. this fall.
A fascinating history lesson on the notorious underbelly of Las Vegas, the Mob Museum in Downtown Las Vegas—aka the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement—is a whirlwind self-guided tour of the mobsters who shaped Sin City.
