Summer may officially be over, but there are plenty of ways to Extend Your Summer at MGM Resorts International properties.
While most of the country is already experiencing the cool, crisp breeze of fall, Las Vegas is still a warm 80+ degrees. Those who aren’t yet ready to part with warm weather and sunshine can head to Sin City to soak up every last ray before going into hibernation for the winter.
Extend Your Summer with Fall Festival Fun
While most major summer music festivals around the country have come and gone, Vegas’ music scene is just heating up in the fall. MGM Resorts’ outdoor Village on the Las Vegas Strip across from Luxor will host a wide variety of festivals from Boulevard Brew Fest featuring Kings of Leon (September 27) to Rock ‘N Roll Wine Amplified Weekend with headliners Train and Blink 182 (October 10-11). Need another reason? iHeart Radio Music Festival Village is the pinnacle of music, merriment and sunshine with a smashing lineup including Iggy Azalea, Magic!, 5 Seconds of Summer and more; all happening September 20.
Extend Your Summer with a Patio Pick-Me-Up
Outdoor dining spots are the newest craze in Vegas and a great way to enjoy the warm weather. One of the hottest places to be is the new Monte Carlo Plaza, where one of the city’s best new restaurants, Yusho, offers outdoor seating where diners can enjoy a balmy night in Vegas while snacking and sipping on tasty Japanese street food. Bubbly cocktails on tap, such as the Paloma, and imaginative dessert items, such as coffee soft serve with Fernet caramel and pop rocks, make this patio the place to be.
Extend Your Summer with All-Season Swimming
Guests won’t have to take a polar plunge if they want to take a dip now that summer is over. Travelers can visit select Vegas pools that are heated and open no matter the season. Those looking to be transported to a tropical oasis should opt for The Mirage’s pool surrounded by towering palm trees and a hypnotizing waterfall. Guests staying at ARIA can soak up the warm desert sun from the comfort of one of three ellipse-shaped pools.
Extend Your Summer with Al Fresco Relaxation
Visitors don’t have to choose between the spa and sunshine while in Vegas – poolside massages and outdoor spa therapy pools allow guests to get the best of both worlds. The Spa at ARIA features a tranquil balcony with an infinity-edge therapy pool and chaise lounge chairs, perfect for getting some sun before or after a treatment. For a VIP experience, guests can book a Custom Cabana Massage at Bellagio’s pool and enjoy 50 minutes of poolside bliss.
Extend Your Summer with some Good Morning Sunshine
One of the hardest parts of transitioning to colder months is the lack of morning sun. MGM Grand’s Stay Well rooms have just the trick to combat those “fall blues.” Each room is equipped with a Dawn Simulator Alarm Clock which mimics sunrise to gently wake guests, making it a little less difficult to rise and shine. Other in-room amenities to help rejuvenate guests include Energizing Light Therapy, aromatherapy and warm white room lighting.
