It's finally starting to feel like fall in Las Vegas and it's now cool enough to do some things you avoided while temperatures hovered around 100 degrees.

1. Go hiking. While of course people hike year-round at Red Rock Canyon and other popular places, it's a much more comfortable hike now. Certain trails at Lake Mead National Recreation Area recently reopened due to cooler temperatures.

2. Go to the park. Parks around Las Vegas often look barren throughout the summer as it's too hot to sit outside or have your kids playing on hot equipment. 

3. Drink hot beverages. While people were excited for the Pumpkin Spice Latte's return, it may have been too hot for many. Now you can drink a PSL to warm you up on those 50-degree mornings.

4. Wear boots and other cooler weather clothing. It's just too hot in Las Vegas to wear boots in the summer along with sweaters and sweatshirts. Now you can bundle up while drinking that hot drink.

5. Walk around an outdoor mall, such as Downtown Summerlin or The District. While people still visited the malls over the summer, you'll be sure to see many more people walking around now that it's cooler.

6. Enjoy a fall barbecue. People barbecue year-round but do you really want to be in front of a hot grill when it's a 105 degrees?

7. Walk around the Strip and Downtown. While locals don't always go to the tourist areas, now is the time to go. Beat the summer crowds and enjoy the cooler weather.
