Las Vegas is home to the most lavish pool parties on the planet, so take advantage of the holiday and the ideal weather to show off your summer swimwear while swaying to the sounds of top spin masters.
There's plenty of outdoor recreation to enjoy, too. Grab a foursome and tee off at one of more than 65 championship golf courses, set sail and go boating on Lake Mead, or discover a nature trail or hidden waterfall at Icebox Canyon and go hiking through Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Catch an intimate evening of hits with Santana at Mandalay Bay, rock out to Incubus at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel or catch a rising hip-hop star when Childish Gambino takes the stage poolside at The Cosmopolitan.
Legendary comics will leave you rolling in the isles this Memorial Day Weekend, including Mr. Heathcliff Huxstable himself Bill Cosby at Treasure Island, ‘Rules of Engagement' star David Spade at The Venetian and venerable TV host Jay Leno at The Mirage.
Follow that up with the best beats in the world at one of Vegas' hottest nightclubs! Check our official blog the week of Memorial Day to see what celebrities, recording artists and music producers will be appearing in Vegas clubs during the holiday.
Make it a memorable Memorial Day Weekend and get your summer started in Vegas!

Take a stroll down one of the world's most famous stretches of road, Las Vegas Boulevard, and take in a variety of sights as you walk.
The roller coaster at New York-New York soars overhead across the Manhattan skyline, and just up the road, you can enjoy outdoor dining with breathtaking views at Cabo Wabo Cantina and PBR Rock Bar & Grill outside Planet Hollywood, Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas and Margaritaville at the Flamingo Las Vegas.
Of course, the Fountains of Bellagio and erupting Volcano at The Mirage are always marvelous to see, but continue down the Strip, safely past the pirates and sirens of Treasure Island, and enjoy the view of the Venetian Plaza and the Lake of Dreams at Wynn Las Vegas.
