Tahiti Village Pool

Sun rising on Las Vegas Strip

In addition to the ritzy casinos and glamorous nightclubs, Las Vegas also offers a wide range of outdoor fun possibilities. To make the most out of your stay, check out these local opportunities that balance fun in the sun with some relief from the heat.

Lake Mead

Head out of town to play in the refreshing waters of Lake Mead. About thirty minutes from the Strip, the lake offers plenty of options for fun such as swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, and scuba diving. You can even take a cruise on the Desert Princess, a three-level paddle boat. Two of the levels are enclosed and climate-controlled, so you can stay perfectly cool while enjoying the lake.

Outdoor Patio Dining on the Strip

You will want to take in the sights while you are in town, of course. From the fountains at the Bellagio to the canals at the Venetian, there is a lot to see and do on the Strip. All that walking in the sun can get exhausting, though, so enjoy the shade at one of the restaurants along the strip that offer patio dining. Serendipity 3, located near the fountains at Caesars Palace, is the perfect place to cool down with an ice cream sundae. If you are near the Wynn when hunger strikes, check out the breakfast or lunch menu at Terrace Pointe Café, where you can be seated on the poolside patio.

Water Parks

If you plan on bringing your whole family to Las Vegas this summer, a visit to one of the city’s water parks is sure to be a big hit with the kids. In addition to their usual water fun, Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas offers a new gaming experience this year called Slideboarding, which allows you to rack up points by hitting targets on the way down the slide.

The Pool at Tahiti Village

One of the best ways to enjoy being outside without burning up is to spend some time at the gorgeous pool area at Tahiti Village. Surrounded by hundreds of sculpted palm trees, the pool boasts a sandy beach entry and full-service Tiki Bar. Whether you are sipping a cocktail in the shade or playing pool volleyball in the play area, you can stay cool while working on your tan.
