Summer is one of the most fun times of year to visit Las Vegas if you do not mind dealing with the heat, as temperatures average at least 100 degrees during the months of June, July and August. The summer days for many Vegas visitors are often spent poolside, so it is important to know what casino resorts have the best pools and outdoor accommodations for your enjoyment even if you are not staying there.
Dayclubs are the hottest trend on and off the Vegas Strip, with every major hotel looking for creative ways to pull in guests. Big-name DJs like Tiesto, Steve Aoki and Avicii are hired exclusively for larger parties under the sun and scheduled over holiday weekends like Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. Some pools in Vegas open as early as March to cash in on the younger crowds visiting during Spring Break and March Madness, so here are the top three pools with their best features…
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
If you have not heard of the Hard Rock’s infamous Rehab pool party, then you probably have not been to Vegas during the summer. Rehab is the biggest pool party in Vegas, taking place every Sunday from the first weekend in May through the last weekend in September. Rehab Beach Club is open from Wednesday through Sunday on a weekly basis during those months though, with visitors paying an admission fee to be treated to the sights and sounds of summer. Easy access to poolside blackjack and other table games plus excellent food and beverage service makes the Hard Rock the premier pool to visit on your next trip to Vegas.
Moorea Beach Club offers another adults-only pool experience located on the south end of the Strip that is a must-see for tourists and locals alike. One of the best spots in Sin City to reserve a cabana, Moorea provides visitors with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in their own outdoor living room complete with flat-screen TVs, refrigerators and your choice of plush seating. The top-end Grand Villa cabana even includes a hot tub, frozen drink dispensers and a stripper pole for the more outgoing guests who want to strut their stuff in front of friends and strangers while the European-style pool is top-optional for the ladies who never have to pay admission.
Golden Nugget Tank Pool
For all ages who enjoy downtown Vegas, the Golden Nugget is the best place to stay and play, featuring its one-of-a-kind pool area with a centerpiece called The Tank. There is a three-story water slide wrapped around an outdoor aquarium where sharks and other fish roam, closed off from the public of course, with waterfalls emptying out to the pool itself. Visitors can also play blackjack and other table games while sipping on their favorite cocktails in this unique setting.
