Caesars Palace transports you to a bigger, better version of palatial Roman leisure, and nowhere is this more evident than its sprawling, 4.5-acre Garden of the Gods pool area. Grab a towel and explore the 5 pools, 2 large spa tubs, and a meandering space full of palm trees, cypresses, marble columns, and classical statues. Swim under a gilded statue of Caesar at the 10,000-square-foot Palace Pool, recline in a daybed by the Neptune Pool, or soak up the sun at the Apollo Pool. You can play swim-up blackjack at the Fortuna Pool, or, for a surcharge, visit the independently operated Venus Pool, which includes a screened-in area for topless sunbathing.
More than 40 cabanas (surcharge) surround the pools. Reserve one, and you too can relax in the shade with a ceiling fan, flat-panel TV with DVD player, cozy furniture, and included wireless Internet access.
Looking for something a little more active? A fitness center, part of Qua Baths & Spa (surcharge for access), offers Technogym equipment in a space flooded with light by bay windows. The fitness concierge can help find the best routine for you.
