Las Vegas is the place for great pool parties and nightlife all summer long, so seize the summer in Vegas!
Everyone knows Las Vegas is famous for its poolside parties and summertime entertainment, but there are plenty of other ways to seize the summer in Vegas before it's gone.
Las Vegas is home to some of the most acclaimed and talked about restaurants in the world. From diners and buffets to one-of-a-kind Michelin-rated eateries, Vegas caters to every dining desire. The Country Club at Wynn Las Vegas offers an innovative update to the classic steakhouse menu. For a rockin' good time, check out Roxy's Diner inside the Stratosphere Hotel, Casino and Tower. The 1950s-themed diner boasts a singing staff and a menu offering hearty items like juicy burgers, crispy onion rings and delicious milkshakes. For those looking for an unforgettable experience, Tao Asian Bistro at The Venetian features Hong Kong Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisines.
Here are a couple of great ways to stay cool this summer - try the Qua Baths and Spa's Arctic Ice Room at Caesars Palace, where you can relax in the "snow" - in the form of mint-infused air falling from a domed ceiling at 55 degrees. It's the coolest spa treatment you'll ever enjoy, and it's only in Vegas. Or hang out at the Minus 5 at Mandalay Bay and Monte Carlo Resort, where the drinks - and everything else - are chilled. Same goes for the frozen ice bar at Red Square.
Life is short. Summer is shorter. Seize the summer in Vegas!
