Seeking Out the Endless Summer in Las Vegas

It's Your Season in Las Vegas

 

Are you the type of traveler that hopes for a longer summer. After all the light colored clothing is put away do you feel a bit depressed at the lack of sunshine?  If flip flops, shorts and the occasional late afternoon cocktail that turns into three are what you crave you can still get a little of that in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas exists in order for you to stretch the boundaries of reality.  Why not pack a bag and head out to the Las Vegas strip for some summer in fall or even winter pleasure.

But, Can I Work On My Tan In Las Vegas?

Yes, you can still work on your tan in Las Vegas.  The temperatures are no longer in the high 90's they now are in the comfortable 70's. (Has the first frost arrived in your neighborhood?) Spend an afternoon at one of the heated pools on the Las Vegas strip. Bellagio, the MGM Grand, ARIA and the Mandalay Bay have pools that are heated to a comfortable 82 degrees and open year round.

Celebrate like it's the middle of July by heading into Minus 5 at the Monte Carlo. Chilled vodka, warm fuzzy coat and a room made entirely of ice right off the Monte Carlo casino. You'll need a signature drink so try a Freezing Apple or an Avalanche. Make sure to get a picture so that your holiday greeting cards have a little Las Vegas flavor added to them.

If you want a little PUB fare you could try the Flatbread at Monte Carlo PUB or walk over to Crystals at Aria and attempt the 7 second beer challenge at Todd English PUB.

Don't be embarrassed, in Las Vegas, you are expected to have too much fun regardless of the season.

 

If there is a way to capture the feeling of summer once the sunscreen is no longer on sale and the patio furniture is gone from the seasonal section of your local home improvement store? Olives at the Bellagio will reinvigorate you.

Sit on the patio, with a view of the Bellagio fountains, snacking on Mediterranean inspired cuisine and sipping on a glass of wine.  That is your avenue to holding onto the magic of summer.

Nearby, LAGO also has an impressive patio that will help you hold onto summer for a little longer. Italian small plates and the best view in town will arm you even as the temperatures drop.

What I'm Drinking in Las Vegas In My Quest To Keep Summer Going

Cocktails can alter your senses and make you believe that summer has never left you. Try Franklin at Delano Hotel, Vesper at Cosmopolitan and Bound at The Cromwell for drinks that will alter your seasons.

If I was you I'd consider a before show drink at RM seafood, fun menu, great food and you'll embrace the changing seasons. The Backwoods Fiddler will remind you that the seasons are changing but the “The Gardner” and the “Tainted Love” will warm you like an Indian summer day.

If you need a comfortable place to sit outside and enjoy the fall air consider Double Barrel Saloon at Monte Carlo, Lakeside Seafood at Wynn, Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas or the deck at Cabo Wabo Cantina.
