Vegas Pools Open for Season
Known for decadence and debauchery, the pool scene in Las Vegas is almost as big of a draw to the desert city as the gambling. While some pools, like Vdara, are open year-round, many more make their annual debut when spring arrives, complete with huge parties to celebrate. Keep in mind the vast majority of Las Vegas pool-centric dayclubs only admit guests 21 and older.
As the weather heats up, so do the parties. Click through the next few pages for a guide to the opening dates and events at some of Sin City's more famous places to cool off.
