Winner: Mandalay Bay

Despite the fact that this pool is attached to a hotel, it is still a popular swim spot for locals. With cabanas, a wave pool and real sand, this pool manages to combine cleanliness with entertainment–often a rarity in the busy Strip. 

Editor’s Pick: Wet’n’Wild

Wet’n’Wild is a treat due to its variety of slides and attractions, in addition to an actual pool. It’s relatively affordable considering the amount of time you can spend there without running out of ways to be entertained. This water park is a great place to organize any range of events, including small get-togethers or large family gatherings.
