Tips When Planning Your Las Vegas Skate Trip

Planning your skate trip to Las Vegas? Here are some of our tips to help you enjoy visiting Las Vegas skateparks.

Getting To and Around Las Vegas

If you’re flying in, you’re likely to come through the Harry Reid International Airport (LAS; formerly McCarran) or through the North Las Vegas Airport (VGT).

Lugging your skateboard around on public transport is probably not how you want to spend your Vegas trip. Fortunately, ride-sharing apps and car rental services are widely available in Las Vegas.

Best Time Of Year To Visit

Spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) have the best temperatures for skating in Las Vegas. Summer (June to August) is too hot and since school is out, expect crowds in the skateparks.

Visiting a Las Vegas Skatepark For the First Time

If it’s your first time in a Las Vegas skatepark or any skatepark for that matter, you’d do well to remember the following:

Don’t snake. If a fellow skater is doing a run or about to drop into a bowl, don’t cut him off. It’s not only rude but potentially dangerous. Wait your turn.

Keep the skateparks clean. Something as small as a water bottle cap can cause injuries. Throw your trash away properly.

Be kind to kids and beginners. Inevitably, they’ll do something wrong or even dangerous. But everyone starts somewhere; cut them some slack and talk to them calmly.
