Las Vegas nightclubs and pool parties are a must for many visitors, but these aren't the only people looking for a pool. According to the most recent Las Vegas Visitor Profile, 4% of Las Vegas visitors are accompanied with children.
Visitors with children often look for a family experience when going out to the pools. It is well known that day clubs are often a separate experience from swimming pools for all ages, as the scenes are not always suitable for a child. Some pools like The Linq are 21+ only, while others may have DJs, gambling, alcoholic beverages, and other things that you might not want to have around a child.
But here are five Las Vegas pool experiences that are fun for the family.
It is more than a swimming pool. Mandalay Bay has an 11 acre pool complex. Mandalay Bay Beach has four pools, including a lagoon, wave pool, and lazy river. The tropical water park also has a grill, three bars, and blackjack tables for adults. Mandalay Beach has something for everyone looking to spend time by the water with the family.
The MGM Grand Pool Complex is huge but small compared to Mandalay Bay. With similarities to its sister property, the 6.5-acre pool complex at MGM Grand also features multiple pools and a lazy river. It also has three hot tubs for the adults to relax while the kids play. Like the best pools in Las Vegas, there are cabanas for rent in case you and your family need a place to store all of your valuables while enjoying the pools.
Tank Pool is a three-story pool complex in downtown Las Vegas. It has a giant shark aquarium right in the middle of the pool at the Golden Nugget. The waterslide is one of a kind because it starts at the top of the pool area and ends, as you imagine, at the main pool.
While the complex seems large enough, it is relatively small compared to many of the pool complexes in Las Vegas. The Golden Nugget pool area can get loud with all the kids and crowded because it is the most visited pool for all ages in downtown Las Vegas.
Red Rock Casino
Red Rock Casino has one of the best pool complexes away from the tourist corridors on the Vegas Strip and downtown Las Vegas. The mostly local pool complex has a large main pool with many smaller pools. The bar / restaurant has the same food as the Grand Cafe inside the casino.
If you are looking for great pool experiences away from the majority of tourists, you can also visit M Resort and Green Valley Ranch. If you're looking to have fun on the water away from a casino, Cowabunga Bay and Wet n Wild water parks should be your choice.
Caesars Palace is one of the most popular casino brands in the world. It's no wonder that Garden of The Gods Pools at Caesars Palace became one of the most popular resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. While the seven-pool complex is large (4.5 acres), it doesn't feel as massive as MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay.
Caesars Palace has almost 4,000 hotel rooms and numerous pools offer a good variety for the whole family. This is not an area designed for children, but it is a great area that offers something for everyone.
