Best Pool For Actual Swimming

UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center


In Las Vegas, the phrase “swimming pool” is a bit oxymoronic. That’s because our pools—from multi-lagoon casino complexes to puddles at dayclubs to the floatie-filled chlorine-gobbler in your buddy’s backyard—usually aren’t conducive to channeling your inner Michael Phelps. That’s where the UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center comes in. Along with an array of cardio machines and weights, handball courts and basketball courts, running tracks and classrooms, your $25 monthly membership fee grants you access to a six-lane, 25-yard lap pool, a good-size soaking pool and jumbo-size hot tub. Everything you need to get that workout in, followed by a little lazy chill-out. It’s still a pool, after all.
