“You’d have to be stupid” to Visit Las Vegas in the Summer

“You’d have to be stupid” to visit Las Vegas in the summer. This is what New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Wednesday while making a speech to help “save Atlantic City.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says “you’d have to be stupid” to visit Las Vegas in the summer. Atlantic City, Christie says, is a much cooler summer destination.

The governor made his comments Wednesday while introducing a redevelopment expert whose new job is helping to save Atlantic City.

John Palmieri is the new executive director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Christie put the revamped agency in charge of efforts to make the nation’s second-largest gambling market cleaner, safer and more successful in the face of withering competition from casinos in neighboring states.

As usual, the Las Vegas media gets defensive, but the truth is that a lot of people from the east coast feel this way. People from the east coast aren’t used to the heat and tend to avoid travelling west in the summer for vacation.

The warm weather feels much better to us in the winter when it’s the west considers it cold. The picture above was taken from my back yard last winter around 7am. By 4pm everything was dry and I was outside in shorts as the temperatures were up to the 50′s.

After spending my first summer in Las Vegas I can confirm that the heat isn’t a big deal and there really is something to the term “dry heat”, although 115 sucks with or without humidity.

The governor could have chosen his words better to support Atlantic City, but the sentiment isn’t far from how many people on the east coast feel. In the end, it’s no big deal.
