Las Vegas Time Zone
Las Vegas observes time changes and will fall into either the Pacific Standard Time or Pacific Daylight Time zone.
With the time and season changes it makes it takes a little planning to avoid the heat in the summer for those who are interested in doing outdoor activities.
For those who hike, Red Rock heats up fast so most hikers will go early in the morning, later in the day, or head to Mt. Charleston to hike.
When the weather cools down to hit the rocks at Red Rock, unfortunately, the sun goes down early (around 4:30ish) so most hiking is done during the morning.
If you are in Nevada and traveling to either Utah or Arizona, be aware of the following:
- There will be a time change for Utah since they are located in the Mountain Time Zone, which means the time will be an hour ahead while you are in Utah.
- Arizona does not observe the time change so depending on what time of year it is the time will be the same as Nevada or an hour different. (Always fun when going back and forth from Laughlin, NV to Bullhead, AZ and back to Laughlin.)

Pacific Time Zone
From Wikipedia, Pacific Time Zone:
The Pacific Time Zone (PT) is a time zone encompassing parts of western Canada, the western United States, and western Mexico. Places in this zone observe standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC−8). During daylight saving time, a time offset of UTC−7 is used.
In the United States and Canada, this time zone is generically called the “Pacific Time Zone”. Specifically, time in this zone is referred to as “Pacific Standard Time” (PST) when standard time is being observed (early November to mid-March), and “Pacific Daylight Time” (PDT) when daylight saving time (mid-March to early November) is being observed.
The Pacific Time Zone is
- Three hours behind the Eastern Time Zone
- Two hours ahead of the Hawaii–Aleutian Time Zone
- Two hours behind the Central Time Zone
- One hour ahead of the Alaska Time Zone
- One hour behind the Mountain Time Zone
