Visited "Cowboy Christmas" and South Point. Rodeos were great! Got to see lots of horses. Found some good buys. Enjoyed seeing Miss NV and great food and music.

if you are a rodeo fan this is a must. It two plus hours of nonstop action. For the super bowl of rodeos the venue is small enough that there isn't a bad seat in the house, some just better. The action come from both ends, the rough stock from one end, the timed events from the other. This rodeo... More

For 10 days every December all of Las Vegas turns into Cowboy Town during the National Finals Rodeo. It's like a giant festival with rodeo-related activities everywhere you look. The Rodeo itself is the heart of everything of course. There are seven events: bareback riding; steer wrestling; team roping; saddle bronc riding; tie down roping; barrel racing; and bull riding....

Saw some of the finest leather work, saddles, bests n buckles, boots, cool Christmas stuff...just amazing...takes a a couple... More

The NFR in Vegas was on our bucket list, we planned a week and it was a great event, plenty of things to do and see. Cowboy Christmas at the convention center is a must see, open 9-5 daily. Well worth the time and money to come to Vegas!!

I love a rodeo - and this was obviously the best of the best. Fast paced and well planned. Everyone knew what they were doing and how to get the arena cleared for the next event. We were on the second level of seating, but had a good view through the monitor set up and watching the action in the... More

Our first time to the NFR couldn't have been more fun! At Cowboy Christmas we got to meet a Steer Wrestler from Oregon and then watched him take a third place finish. This is a great event to see some of the most talented cowboys and cowgirls riding today. Looking forward to next year!

Visiting the NFR and its Cowboy Christmas sideshows in 2013 was our main reason for going to Vegas with a bunch of likeminded friends. We were advised that we could get official 'returns' tickets from the organiser's booth at the convention centre and this is a good way to get them although they sold at almost twice their face value....
