Relocating from Denver to Las Vegas
From the picturesque Rocky Mountains to its vibrant cultural scene, living in Denver has been a delight. But now, your sights are set on Las Vegas. What does Sin City have in store? The answer is, pretty much whatever you want! There’s more to Vegas than glitz, gambling and bright lights. Read on to get a feel for your new home and discover an easy, efficient way to move there.
Respect the Heat
Coming from crisp, cool Denver, you’ll notice right away that the hot, dry Las Vegas climate can be oppressive — and potentially dangerous. Follow these tips to protect yourself and your loved ones:
Be strategic with outdoor activities. Early mornings and late evenings are best for spending time outside.
Find the shade. It can be 20-30 degrees cooler there than in the direct sunlight.
Hydrate your entire body. Drink plenty of water, but don’t forget to use lip balm and body lotion. Hot, dry air is hard on the skin.
Limit caffeine and alcohol. Enjoy in moderation, but too much can dehydrate you.
Take a dip. Few things are more refreshing than wading in cool water on a hot day.
Head to Mount Charleston. Located about 25 minutes away from Strip, this area is about 30 degrees cooler than Vegas.
