Las Vegas Pools Open Year Round – Updated For 2022/2023

When you think of Las Vegas, sun-drenched pool scenes are one of the first things that come to mind.

While the summer pool season is lively, many visitors don’t realize that the weather in Vegas can get downright frigid during the winter. With cold temps in mind, a good chunk of resorts shutter their pools during the winter months.

Many visitors though, commonly from colder climates, are undeterred by chilly temps and look to visit the pool while in town.

I figured it would be helpful to construct a list of Las Vegas pools on the Strip, Downtown, and off the Strip that keep their pools open during the winter.

A couple of quick notes:

  • Always check with the property before you venture to the pool deck. Even if the pool is open during the winter, many will close due to high winds or unseasonably cold temps. Additionally, most pools still close for a week or so for maintenance during the off-season.
  • You’ll want to confirm the pool’s hours of operation as most resorts scale things back significantly from November to April.
  • Food & beverage options are also typically scaled back or non-existent during the winter.

MGM Grand: One heated pool (their Main Pool) is left open during the winter months at MGM Grand although the majority of their 6.5-acre complex does get shut down.

Unfortunately, the popular lazy river is not open during the winter.

Aria: The foliage-rich pool deck at Aria remains open for business in the winter with water heated to 80 degrees. If staying at Vdara, you’re also able to use Aria’s pool as Vdara’s closes in October.

Resorts World: The newest, and one of the best pool complexes on the Strip will remain open and heated throughout the winter. Weighing in at 5.5-acres and 7 unique pools, this is one pool deck everyone should experience. Notably, there is an infinity pool on the south end of the property that overlooks the Strip.

Circa: Boasting 6 swimming pools, 2 swim-up bars, and poolside gaming, Circa’s Stadium Swim easily qualifies as the best pool on Fremont Street. Adding to the allure is the 143-foot screen that’s always tuned to the big game.

The pools are heated, and you can actually view the up-to-the-minute water temperature, here.

South Point: Although the pool is open year round, they typically stop heating it in October. It’ll be uncomfortable, but if you don’t mind a frigid dip, the pool at South Point is an option.

Hopefully, we were able to help you find a pool if you are crazy enough to take a dip in the months of October, November, December, January, or February. Enjoy your swim – We’ll meet you at the bar.

I'm trying to find somewhere I can just sunbathe. All the Caesars pools are closed now and I don't stay at any properties on the list. Does anyone have any suggestions - I'm willing to pay (reasonable amount) to just be able to soak up some sun.

@KEITH FORTNER, give Circa a shot! I know they allow anyone in and charge a cover which varies depending on the day. Id recommend getting there early if it's a weekend so you can claim some real estate.

Thanks for the link - Caesar’s platinum player here - I’m from Oregon so I don’t get there as often as locals - However I play a higher stakes game than most ! Really annoyed by this RESORT FEE - pool isn’t open , don’t use the gym , their Internet sucks and I have 5G from AT&T unlimited , The Rio resort pulled all the little refrigerators from the room, see you tell me what I’m getting for my resort fee ?? I just keep shooting my mouth off to let Caesars gambling know I’m gonna go somewhere else that respects my play and my money - by the way workers — I’ve been coming for 35 years and never had a drink in my life without at least tipping a dollar, do you need folks like me – go boomers !
