We’ve rounded up some fun activities for these hot summer days, with exclusive offerings and local specials on and off the Las Vegas Strip!

Summer Activities

Every Friday through September 23, fitness enthusiasts can enjoy select classes at the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The first and third Friday of each month will feature Poolside Mat HIIT, while the second and fourth Friday of each month features Yin Yoga. Guests can enjoy the stunning Strip view each morning at 7 a.m. with their class for only $25 per person (this includes a mat, towel and water). Anyone can register for the experiences online here. The glass doors to the Boulevard Pool are open from 6:45 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. on class days; however, if the doors are not unlocked, make sure to contact security by calling the hotel at (702) 698-7000 to ensure you don’t miss any of the experience. 

We were invited to check out one of the classes and thoroughly enjoyed the yoga class. It was easy to follow, and the view of the Strip was beautiful. Bring sunblock and sunglasses as the summer sun makes the last few minutes of class a bit warm and bright as the sun comes up over the resorts opposite The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The class is designed for all fitness levels (physical and mental) with numerous modifications for the yoga poses, so don't be concerned if you don't regularly practice yoga.

Las Vegas Natural History Museum has a fun new exhibit on display through September 10. “Da Vinci Machines & Robotics” brings some of the most exciting inventions of Leonardo da Vinci to Las Vegas from the exhibit’s home in Florence, Italy. Part of the Engelstad Foundation Traveling Exhibition Series, the display features over 60 of Leonardo da Vinci’s machines and art. 

Stadium Swim at Circa Resort & Casino has a fun Rosé Garden pop-up in July and August on the last Sunday of each month. We were invited in to check out the pop-up and its Instagrammable setup and enjoy a pool day in a hosted cabana. In partnership with Moët Hennessy, the event offers bottomless rosé from noon to 4 p.m. for ladies, along with photo ops, rosé pong and giveaways. RSVP in advance for complimentary admission and unlimited servings of The Palm by Whispering Angel for two hours. Walk-ups are accepted but will incur a $35 fee on top of the general admission price at Stadium Swim. If you’re visiting with a group for a girl’s day out, consider renting a cabana for an elevated experience, fun eats (we loved the lobster corn dogs), and some much-needed shade.
