Having friends come to Las Vegas, I can get some of the strangest questions, like where can we stay that has the best pools or even pool parties. I am not a tourist, so finding out which casino has the best parties is kind of a challenge since they all claim to be the best of the best. So, this time I had to dive into my investigative reporting and drive to the most popular and see what I would want to rock a bikini at.
After investigating for what seemed like a month, I decided to narrow it down to the top 10 Pools I would want to party at or even just lounge around and have a glass of wine with my girlfriends at. We have all heard of nightlife, but now I will tell you all about the Vegas daylife. It seems to me that many of the pools here in Las Vegas are not your average run of the mill pools. They’re glamorous, splashy, fun in the sun party scenes are full of party style deejays, full-service cabanas, specialty cocktails, floating gambling tables and even fun energetic professional dancers are the hype in these amazing pools throughout Las Vegas. Having to decide which and what order I would rank these was such a struggle as they all have such unique and fun things that would make me want to grab a floaty, a beer and jump right in.
