Top 10 Pools in Las Vegas

After staying up late gambling the night before, you may find that there’s nothing better than relaxing by a refreshing Las Vegas resort pool during the day. Perhaps you’ll lift the umbrella on the back of your lounge chair and when the cocktail waitress stops by, you’ll order a Margarita and reflect on last night’s winnings or look ahead to tonight’s exciting show on the Strip. Or perhaps a Blood Mary as a cure from last night’s hangover while you cover your eyes with your Maui Jim’s and peek at the ladies in their bikinis is more your style.

If your idea of a fun day at the pool includes “European-style” sunbathing, then you’re in luck. Many of the popular Strip properties now have special pools with “topless” sun bathing, extending these special pool venues into the evening. An important thing to note on these specialty pools: they cost extra. So, get ready for the “top 10 pools in Las Vegas,” some topless and some not.
