7 Ways to Keep Your Cool in the Las Vegas Heat
Scream…for ice cream.
What is better than a favorite summer treat? Check out Sprinkles Cupcakes & Ice Cream, easily found on the Linq Promenade. Or for an alcoholic alternative, enjoy a Frosė at GIADA inside The Cromwell. They combine rosė wine with a few secret ingredients to create a truly refreshing treat.
Break the ice
Las Vegas stays hot well into the fall, but get an early taste of winter at a Las Vegas Knights game. This is the debut season for Las Vegas’ new hockey team. You can catch a game at the new T-Mobile Arena. While you’re there, be sure to check out The Park. With over a dozen bars and restaurants, there’s something for everyone.
Tunes & tides
Enjoy one of your favorite performers while you’re knee deep in the Mandalay Bay Pool. Their summer concert series features artists from all different genres. Want the VIP experience? The Beachfront Experience comes with lounge seating, drink service and the best view on the beach. Check out their calendar of upcoming shows.
Chill out in the spa
Relax and enjoy a spa day. While there are plenty of indulgent spas in Las Vegas, only one features an arctic ice room. The spa at Caesars, Qua Baths & Spa, takes luxury and relaxation to a new level. At Qua, you can enjoy the Roman Baths, linger in their sauna, steam rooms and leave feeling refreshed
Knock back a cold one
Sometimes a cold beer is exactly what you need on a hot day. If that’s the case, Vegas has a wide variety of options. Looking for a local brewery? We recommend checking out Tenaya Creek. They’ve been a crowd pleaser in Las Vegas since 1999. Plus, they always have a great selection of guest taps. If you’re looking to stay on the Strip, try Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas. Beer Park’s 10,000 square-foot deck features one of the best views of the Bellagio Fountains.
Go old school
The Mob Museum has quickly become one of the most popular museums in Vegas. The museum highlights the sometimes grisly history of organized crime and law enforcement in a way that’s engaging. It’s a bit more fun than your traditional history museum. You may already know the names Capone, Bugsy and Shorty but spend a few hours here learning how mobs influenced cities like Las Vegas. Plus, the secret is out about the Mob Museum’s soon-to-arrive speakeasy and distillery.
Gain some altitude
Mount Charleston is just a half hour drive from the Las Vegas Strip, but you will feel a world of difference almost right away. Temperatures on the mountain are typically 20-30 degrees cooler, depending on the elevation. Enjoy a scenic drive (windows down, of course), go hiking or enjoy lunch at one of the many picnic areas.
