As if there wasn't already enough temptation in Sin City - now there are Las Vegas pool parties to distract the millions who come to the city for a wild time. A Las Vegas pool party is, well, exactly what you would expect: it's a daytime recreation of the lusty wilderness of a Vegas nightclub, complete with house DJs, overpriced drinks and thin, tanned bodies writhing on the dancefloor. Just replace the dim, pink and green lights of the nightclub with the welcoming glow of the midday sun, and you have the newest trend in entertainment - Las Vegas pool parties.

It all began with the Rehab pool party, located behind the Hard Rock Hotel. Still going strong, it's considered the hippest place to work off your hangover - the pool party starts at noon and lasts until the sun goes down, and offers all the fruity drinks, hot tub action and even poolside blackjack tables just in case you actually came to Las Vegas to do some gambling. Clubwear is shunned in favor of bikinis and board shorts, as the Rehab pool party is just as the name would suggest - it mixes the party lifestyle with the relaxation of the sand and surf, a combination that has proved eminently successful since its inception in 2002.

But it wouldn't be the strip if there wasn't some friendly competition. Many hotels now offer similar Las Vegas pool parties, and now you don't even have to wait until Sunday to enjoy them. The Bare Las Vegas pool party has grown in renown since it's opening at the Mirage, and subtly offers "European-style sunbathing," the most obvious euphemism in the history of euphemisms. Open five days a week, it also opens the earliest of any of them (for instance, the first Rehab pool party of the year doesn't come along until the conclusion of April), and features nearby dolphins at play, along with the usual trappings. The entrance fee is a little bit steeper than the other Las Vegas pool parties: $30 for men and $10 for women during weekdays and an additional $10 for weekend parties. The cheapest Las Vegas pool party is held at the Venus behind Caesar's Palace, where everyone gets in for a twenty.

The newest Las Vegas pool party is angling to replace Rehab at the top of the list when it comes to this form of entertainment. The Tao Beach Club at the Venetian is playing off its nightclub of the same name, which is always the hippest, most exclusive nightclub in Vegas at any time of the year. And now they are branching out into the pool party scene, offering Sunset Sundays at 7pm, where the party lasts well into the night. Who needs nightclubs when you have so many pool parties to choose from?
