When to the WNFR in 2011. Awesome rodeo. Be sure to take a shuttle from one of the many hotels, as it is free. Arrive early as the place gets packed! Only down side is the long lines to get a shuttle after the rodeo. You will have to leave during the barrel racing if you don't want to wait... More

Had not been to a rodeo in years. Found out the National Rodeo was in town when we were and got tickets online. Such a great crowd! Lots of excitement and well worth the money! Only downer was the limited number of shuttle buses to and from the event. It was a chilly night and we stood in line A... More

I've only missed twice in 22 years. The entire town turns rodeo. Best room prices of the year. The WNFR is a must attend live event, then watch it live from your casino/hotel the next night. Parties all over town. Dont miss the Hoe Down party on Freemont Street at the start of the 10 days of rodeo action. Put... More

NFR is our yearly Vegas trip. Of course the Rodeo is outstanding. But add in all the shopping at the many Cowboy Christmas locations and you have created paradise for me. It is so fun to see Vegas full of Cowboys, the vibe of the whole city changes. I hope to go for may years to come!

Wow - over 2 hours of nail-biting, edge-of-my-seat excitement watching the bull riders, the bucking broncos, the team ropers, the barrel racers and the calf roping! Patrons all decked out in Western attire and everyone cheering on their favorite cowboy or cowgirl. What a fun-filled, non-stop evening! Even a toddler sitting next to us was mesmerized the entire time. Can't... More

We have travelled from the UK to attend the NFR every December since 2006 and are already booked for this year. Go to 5 nights at the Thomas and Mack and watch on the big screen in the Mirage on the other nights. We have always booked a package of hotel and tickets through a US travel agent but now... More
