What You Need to Know Before Going to a Pool Party or Dayclub in Las Vegas


This is the time of year when Las Vegans take to their pools!

For those lucky enough to live in condominium communities with resort-style amenities, pool season means having the luxury of a magnificent pool, cabanas, and more, just outside their front door.

This little slice of heaven not only features an exclusive pristine resort pool and cabanas, but also a heated spa plus a top-notch summer kitchen and grilling stations. Then, when evening falls, the firepit adds that extra wow factor.
