Las Vegas is known as one of the most famous cities in the world for its entertainment and casinos. For those who plan to spend time this spring or summer in Vegas, the city can heat up quickly. Here are a few “cool” things to do to beat the heat and still have a great time.
Most people don’t want to spend the day walking around outside in Las Vegas when it’s time to have a bit of fun. Instead of sweating in the heat, opt for taking The Deuce, which is a double-decker bus that offers rides on The Strip 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cost is only $5 for an unlimited two-hour pass or $7 for a day pass.
When you want to enjoy free entertainment and cool off in the sun, attend one of the Bellagio fountains shows that are available every 30 minutes during the day on The Strip. The aquatic show features multiple fountains that shoot into the air and blow a cool mist onto those who are watching the show.
One of the top tips for living in Las Vegas during the summer is to stay cool outdoors by lounging in a cabana. You can visit one of the top hotels in the city to feel pampered by the staff while sitting poolside or you can create a cabana in your own backyard. You’ll have an oasis in the desert and can avoid overheating while taking in the views.
Many of the cabanas at the hotels in Vegas also include flat screen televisions and magazines where you can read or watch TV without heading indoors.
You can still visit the beach while living in the desert by visiting the Mandalay Bay Beach, which is known for its luxurious setting. The beach features a 1.6-million-gallon wave pool, a lazy river, and daybeds with 2,700 tons of real sand. Over 100 rentable cabanas and private villas are available when you want to spend the day staying cool in a fun environment. There are even live concerts that are hosted at the beach where you can rock out to the top tunes.
You can also visit the Shark Reef Aquarium at the hotel, which features 14 different exhibits where over 2,000 animals can be viewed. You’ll learn more about marine life and can see everything from sea turtles to sharks.
You don’t have to fly to Venice to enjoy a romantic gondola ride in an outdoor setting. When you’re living in Las Vegas, you can spend time on the water by stopping by the Venetian where manmade canals are available near indoor Italian streetscapes. You can feel the wind in your hair while getting a glimpse of the stunning architecture that is built on nearby balconies and bridges on the hotel.
