Daytona Beach, Cancun, South Padre, Key West and South Beach are locations at the top of the list as destinations for Spring Break. College students who spent the last four months in frigid climates hit the road for warmer locations. Destinations are warm, but also where they can enjoy the company of the opposite sex and copious amounts of alcohol. The Entertainment Capital of the World; Las Vegas is at the top of the list. Las Vegas has always been known for reinventing itself. The new clubs at the mega resorts are the best in the world and have enjoyed tremendous success in the past decade. Why limit this success to the wee hours of the night? The most recent trend is to take the excitement of the night clubs and take it to the pool under the bright desert sun. Live DJ’s, bikini contests and free flowing alcohol make the ultimate Vegas excitement. The following pools are our four top Spring Break recommendations.
1: Liquid at Aria Resort & Casino Las Vegas
Aria is one of the newest resorts on the Vegas Strip. Things get hot (and cool) at their adult-only pool named Liquid. The atmosphere is more upscale than the more raucous pools in Vegas. Resident DJ’s play subdued music while partiers drink cocktails. There are two pools surrounded by daybeds and comfy lounges. Adjacent to the pools a restaurant serves delicious snack and sandwiches. If desired, guests can rent a secluded and spacious cabana with full service and high tech amenities.
2: Rehab Sundays at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino The Hard Rock Hotel was one of the first to start the Vegas pool party trend. The casino is all things music, it made sense it would spill out to their infamous pool by the name “Sunday Rehab.” This will be its ninth successful season. Based on the “hair of the dog” saying, Rehab features live DJ’s, scantily clad partiers and tons of alcohol. Everything needed to recover from Saturday night. The music is loud and fast so be prepared for lots of action. Daybeds and cabanas are available for those who need more time to recover.
Status: Open April 21st
3: Bare at The Mirage Bring it on ladies; Bare is adults only and topless is optional. The environment is smaller and subdued, but still has DJ’s playing trendy and romantic music and specialty drinks. Spring Breakers will enjoy lots of special events and can enjoy all you can drink specials. Their slogan; “Lose the Tan Lines”.
4: Wet Republic at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino If big is what you want, Wet Republic at the MGM Grand is the place. The adults-only space at the MGM features numerous pools, including two salt water pools, a massive sundeck, VIP bungalows, daily contests, and an impressive list of DJs and performers. The big parties take place over the weekend. Celebrities and hot entertainers headline weekly and monthly events...transforming the 4,100 square-foot sundeck into a stage, and making Wet Republic one of the hottest destinations for premier entertainment.
Historically, Spring Breakers flocked to locations that bloom only during that time of year. Now they flock to a location that is wild 365 days a year; Las Vegas. Sun and Sexy; that’s Vegas baby!
