Your Las Vegas City Guide to Safe Spring Breaking

We’ve curated the top spots to enjoy a safe spring break in Las Vegas.

As Las Vegas continues to reopen this spring, the city will be welcoming spring breakers from around the country. Three major Strip resorts recently went from weekends only to opening seven days a week, signaling businesses around the city to once again open their doors. There are currently no travel restrictions for Nevada; however, you may want to check your state for restrictions upon your return home.

Hotels Are Ready For Visitors

If you’re hunting for a room deal, properties towards the far north end of the Strip have room rates for under $50. Hotels like The Strat and SAHARA Las Vegas offer low room rates with numerous dining options, and The Strat is host to a multitude of activities as well. Mid-Strip properties like The LinqFlamingo, and Planet Hollywood are serving up room rates under $75 with plenty of on-site eating and shopping options. Basic health and safety changes have been made to virtually every resort in Las Vegas to ensure the comfort of guests. Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts both list extensive Covid safety information for their properties online, with Caesars, listing their protocols by outlet type (casino, hotel, dining, etc.) and MGM Resorts elaborating on their Seven-Point Safety Plan.

Many Hotel Pools Have Reopened

As the temperatures begin to heat up, pool season is upon us. The majority of resort properties have reopened their pools with enhanced health and safety measures such as increased spacing between seats. Most properties on the Strip are currently only offering complimentary entry into their pools for hotel guests only. That said, you can still enjoy some sunbathing at the oasis of your choice. Caesars and MGM properties are allowing the general public to reserve seating online with various price points, meaning you won’t have to worry about making a mad dash to find an open lounger. If you’re looking for something more private or hoping to accommodate a group, cabanas and daybeds provide a comfortable choice with various amenities depending on the property and package price. For those spring breakers hoping for a more quiet (or less quiet, depending on your vacation style) experience, several adults-only pools have reopened as well. LIQUID Pool LoungeBare Pool Lounge, and Wet Republic are open to guests 21 and over, while Venus Pool + Lounge is open to guests 18 and over.

Adult-only options like ABSINTHE (dark Mondays and Tuesdays), Fantasy, and Thunder From Down Under (dark Tuesdays and Wednesdays) have returned to their stages with necessary health and safety modifications made for the audience and performers.

Mon Ami Gabi offers their full menu for take-out as well as an exclusive French Onion Soup kit that’s perfect if you have access to a kitchen. The Caesars Eats system offers take-out and delivery options for some of their most popular restaurants, such as Giada and Nobu, with online ordering available.
