Las Vegas dayclubs and pool parties are important to many visitors but these aren’t the only people heading to the pool. According to the most recent Las Vegas Visitors Profile, 4% of visitors in Las Vegas are bringing children.
Visitors with children are looking for a family experience when heading out to the pools. While dayclubs are often a separate experience from all-ages pools the scenes aren’t always kid friendly. Some pools like The Linq are 21+ only, while others might have DJ’s, gambling, booze and other things you might not want to have a child around.
Here are five Las Vegas pool experiences that are fun for the family.
This is more than just a pool. Mandalay Bay has an 11-acre pool complex. Mandalay Bay Beach has four pools including a lagoon, wave pool and a lazy river. The tropical aquatic playground also has a grill, three bars, and blackjack tables for the adults. Mandalay Beach has something for everyone looking to spend quality time by the water with the family.
The MGM Grand Pool Complex is huge but small in comparison to Mandalay Bay. Similar to its sister property, the 6.5-acre pool complex at MGM Grand also has multiple pools and a lazy river. There are also three whirlpools for the adults to get some relaxation while the kids play. Like all of the best pools in Las Vegas, there are cabanas to rent in case you and the family need a place to keep all your stuff while enjoying the pools.
The Tank Pool is a three-story high pool complex in downtown Las Vegas. There’s a giant shark aquarium right in the middle of the pool at the Golden Nugget. The one-of-a-kind waterslide begins at the top of the pool area and finishes, as you’d imagine, in the main pool.
While the complex sounds large, it’s relatively small compared to many of the Las Vegas pool complexes. The Golden Nugget pool area can be loud with all of the kids and crowded because it’s the most popular all-ages pool 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 locals pool complex has one large main pool with plenty of smaller dipping pools. The bar/restaurant has the same food as the Grand Cafe inside the casino.
If you’re 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 for a fun time in the water away from a casino, Cowabunga Bay and Wet n Wild waterparks should do the trick.
Caesars Palace is one of the most popular casino brands in the world. It’s no surprise that the Garden of The Gods Pools at Caesars Palace is one of the most popular complexes on the 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 nearly 4,000 hotel rooms and the numerous pools offer a nice variety for the whole family. This isn’t a pool area designed for children but it’s a large pool area that offers something for everyone.
