Sneak into Las Vegas Casino/Hotel Pools for FREE!

Las Vegas tourists and residents alike enjoy splashing around in pools and trying to cool off  as temperatures hit the triple digits.  But with our economy languishing in the doldrums, it’s sometimes hard to find enough dough to pay for the experience.  So, here’s our Las Vegas Backstage Access listing of the most sneak-friendly pools in Las Vegas.  Enter at your own risk!

Tropicana – 3801 S. Las Vegas Blvd.   Start at the Reno Avenue entrance at the southwest side of the Tropicana.  It’s maybe not the classiest place, but it’s gigantic, including a swim-up bar, blackjack tables, and two separate hot tubs. 

Flamingo – 3555 S. Las Vegas Blvd.  Go in the parking garage, walk down the metal staircase, go across the street and head directly into the extremely crowded pool area.  Could be there is staff members at entrance, but usually not a problem to enter. 

Riviera – 2901 S. Las Vegas Blvd.  Their very deep pool isn’t fancy with waterfalls, bars and such, but very relaxing.  They don’t ask to see a room key to get a beach towel, just think of a name and room number and write ’em down before you enter. 

Artisan – 1501 W. Sahara Ave.  Valet park your cark and saunter through the lobby.  Features a cool grotto with foliage and comfy lounge furniture.  Not a bar at the pool, but you can use the pool phone to call the bar and a bartender will bring your cocktails poolside. 

Golden Nugget – 129 Fremont Street  Security guards stand sentry at the door, but just look like you’re going swimming, bring your own towels, and wait for families to go through and follow them.  Huge waterslide that goes through a shark tank.  Very luxurious with cushioned deck chairs and VIP areas.

Michael Phelps Swims Upstream for Miss California USA Carrie Prejean

Despite all the flap and fallout arising from Perez Hilton’s question and Miss California USA Carrie Prejean’s truthful carrieprejeananswer about legalizing same-sex marriage during the Miss USA Pageant on Sunday in Las Vegas, it appears that the record-breaking eight Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps is taking to the blond bombshell like a beached fish out of water. 

Seemingly not able to get enough of each other, they met last September at the Palms Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas and Phelps became instantly hooked with line and sinker when seeing her hook when the two played basketball in the Hardwood Suite at the Palms, according to Jon Gray, assistant to Palms owner George Maloof. 

Prejean, captain of her Vista (California) High School varsity basketball team, continues to clandestinely roll with Phelps and “he always calls her when he is in town and they go out,” says Prejean’s grandmother, Jeanette Copolla when recently talking with Radaronline.com 

A photograph of Prejean, with a drink in her hands, and smoke-loving Phelps, who looked like he just came off a 24-hour flight from China, appeared in Radaronline yesterday. 

Meanwhile, Phelps continues to bait yet another fish, Carolynn “Caz” Pal, a cocktail server at Moon nightclub in the Palms.
