With an average of 294 days of sunshine a year, you can almost always count on blue skies. For the most relaxing outdoor experience, grab a lounger at the Chelsea pool at the The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
. And speaking of water, the Golden Nugget Hotel
gets a shout out for building a pool that abuts a 200,000 gallon shark tank. You can even brave a waterslide that runs right through the middle! If you need a break from the stimulation overload, there are plenty of outdoor activities nearby. Paddleboard on Lake Las Vegas, hike in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
, or take a dip in one of the Colorado River’s slot canyon hot springs. Arizona Hot Spring in Lake Mead National Recreation Area
is a local favorite. Though it requires an easy 5.6-mile round trip hike, the reward is worth every step. Yes, you can really can get away from it all in Las Vegas.
