Cool off in Las Vegas

If you visit Las Vegas in the summer, be prepared to sweat! Temperatures often hover around 112 degrees in the heat of the summer, which can quickly zap your strength if you're not used to the dry, scorching heat. Fortunately, the hotels along the strip are full of cool waters and glistening swimming pools. Some of them even offer cabana rentals and most offer poolside drinks and snacks.

The Beach at Mandalay Bay

If you didn't think you could go to the beach in Las Vegas, you were mistaken. Set upon eleven acres, the beach, which includes 2,700 tons of sand at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino offers a wave pool, lazy river, and 3 swimming pools. You can also rent a cabana, get a poolside massage, and dine at the open air Beach Bar and Grill. For those adults who enjoy the European style of sunbathing, the Morea Club offers a sophisticated experience. Instead of baking in the scorching heat, cool off at the Beach at Mandalay Bay.

Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino

You'll have 4 swimming pools to choose from here, among the Roman statues and fountains. If you like to indulge in European sunbathing, you can do so for free on weekdays, although there is a cover charge on the weekends. If you want to make the experience truly indulgent, rent an air conditioned cabana, which is stocked full of drinks and lounge around on the cushy lounge chairs while you watch TV. There is just no reason you should suffer in the Las Vegas heat because there are too many delicious ways to cool off here.

Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino

If you're lucky enough to be staying at this hotel, you absolutely have to make it up to the roof for a swim or bask in their rooftop hot tub. You can also rent poolside cabanas and villas to make your time at the pool truly spectacular. Keep in mind that in order to be admitted into most of the strip hotel's pools, you'll have to present your room key. If there is a pool you're dying to take a dip in, ask if you can pay an admission fee if you're not staying at that particular hotel. Some may allow it while others won't.

Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino

If you're in the mood for a tropical paradise, try the pools at the Flamingo. Complete with lagoons and a waterfall, this tropical oasis can be yours and it is located right in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. If you have kids in your party, this is the one with the water slides, which are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day. You can also rent private cabanas, which come with LCD TVs and a private host as well.
