Las Vegas Pool & Spa Day

If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas, you know how amazing that place is. We flew into North Las Vegas Airport and arrived on a red eye and we were so exhausted we didn’t even both trying to hit the clubs- we went straight to the ARIA Resort and Casino for a good night sleep. We would have done the MGM Grand, but the taxi driver took us to the wrong spot.  We slept in until about 11 AM, then went over to Caesars Palace for brunch and to play some slots. After blowing some money at the high roller tables for an hour or two, we went straight to the Mirage Pool to spend some time in the sun, take a dip in the water, and swim for a bit.

This luxury swimming pool was designed by Envy Pool Builders of Las Vegas. You can visit their website at to see their full portfolio.  They have developed more than 47 of the hotel swimming pools along the Vegas Strip and a number out in Paradise and Henderson as well.  Samantha sat there and read their brochure for 20 minutes! I was more concerned with enjoying the water. It was a perfect clear blue and probably 80 degrees. I’m actually surprised is wasn’t closed, but I’m not complaining.

The Mirage Pool is one of several famous attractions in the city. Another big one is the Palazzo Pool located inside the Venetian at 3325 S Las Vegas Blvd in the 89109 zip code. It normally closes at 5:00 PM, so we don’t go to that one as much.  If you’re in the mood for an outside oasis, you can always try the Garside Pool on Torrey Pines Drive in Clark County.  There’s always a lot of great options, which is one of the reasons I just love Nevada any time of the year.
