Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - TRAVEL - ——— For more in­for­ma­tion about Las Ve­gas shows, buf­fets, coupons and good deals, go to LasVe­gasAd­vi­sor.com.

Al­though the “of­fi­cial” kick­off of the pool sea­son is tra­di­tion­ally pegged as Memo­rial Day week­end, al­most all of the Las Ve­gas party pools are al­ready in full swing. Un­like the days when you had to be a ho­tel guest to get into a casino pool, many are now open to the public for swim­ming or par­ty­ing. There’s usu­ally a fee and drinks tend to be ex­pen­sive, but these pools will be hop­ping all sum­mer long as part of Las Ve­gas’ vi­brant “Daylife” scene:

Aliante, Aria, Ar­ti­san, Bally’s, Cae­sars Palace, Cos­mopoli­tan, Cromwell, Down­town Grand, Ex­cal­ibur, Flamingo, Golden Nugget, Green Val­ley Ranch, Hard Rock, Hoot­ers, The LINQ, Luxor, M Re­sort, Man­dalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mi­rage, Palazzo, Palms, Planet Hol­ly­wood, Plaza, Ram­part, Red Rock, Sil­ver­ton, SLS, Strato­sphere, Sun­set Sta­tion, Trop­i­cana and Vene­tian. If you don’t see the place you’re stay­ing on the list, don’t worry. All the casi­nos have pools; they just aren’t all open to the public.

Top­tional: This year eight Las Ve­gas pools are clas­si­fied as “top­tional,” mean­ing top­less sun­bathing by women is al­lowed (if not en­cour­aged): Ar­ti­san (Euro­pean Pool), Cae­sars Palace (Venus Pool), En­core (Euro­pean Pool), Man­dalay Bay (Moorea Beach Club), Mi­rage (Bare Pool), Strato­sphere (Ra­dius), Vene­tian (TAO Beach) and Wynn (Sun­set Pool). Most charge ad­mis­sion fees for non-ho­tel guests.

Black­jack: If you want to play live black­jack by the pool, there are 13 casi­nos to choose from: Cae­sars Palace, En­core, Flamingo, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, Man­dalay Bay, Plaza, Planet Hol­ly­wood, Ram­part, Red Rock, SLS, Trop­i­cana and Wynn.

Ques­tion:

What’s the long­est-run­ning show in Las Ve­gas?

An­swer:

With the clos­ing of “Ju­bilee!” last year, the long­est run­ning show is now “Leg­ends in Con­cert” at the Flamingo, hav­ing played for 34 years. It’s fol­lowed by “Di­vas Las Ve­gas” at The LINQ (31 years), “Crazy Girls” at Planet Hol­ly­wood (29 years) and “Tour­na­ment of Kings” at Ex­cal­ibur (26 years).
