Spring is nice, too, but visitor- and allergen-heavy, which leaves my absolute favorite times of year: fall and winter. If you’re a local, then you already know how wonderful Las Vegas is during November and December, but if you’re not… allow me to mount my soap box and make my case.

In what the internet has deemed a perfect summation of the year 2016, Halloween falls on a Monday this year. Talk about scary!

From costume parties and haunted houses to movie nights and nightclubs, there are about a million ways to do Halloween in the desert — even if, like me, you still have Real Life (TM) to tend to on Monday and Tuesday. Check out some of Vegas’ Halloween activities for this weekend.
