It’s summertime in the city of sin! The time of the year in Las Vegas that we have been waiting for! Summer sun, pools all day and all night long, day drinking minus the judgment, and everything you love about Vegas! Here’s my list of travel essentials that I keep on hand and that my travel clients have been requesting so that you can have a smoother trip (or stay if you’re a local). When you are packing your pool bag for any occasion here is what you need to keep the day on a high note.
Pool Day Essentials:
A day out in the sun is one of the best ways to spend your Vegas Vacation! Whether that’s at the pool club, your hotel pool, or your own backyard, here are my favorite must have’s for every pool day.
🌟Keep it cute with a fashionable beach tote
you can carry. This is for when you’re planning a day at the pool with your tribe so that one of you can carry all the essentials. You won’t want an entire tote at the pool club unless you have a table/cabana/day bed or are willing to pay $50+ for a locker/bag check.
I like this bag because it’s WATERPROOF. All those mesh and drawstring bags are mad cute and I love them, but it just takes ONE TIME for your stuff to get soaked for it to not be worth it anymore. I keep a waterproof bag in my trunk now at all times for exactly this reason. If you are going to the pool club, you won’t want to carry around a big bag so everyone can carry their own things with a small waterproof waist bag like this one from amazon:
🌟Speaking of waterproof, keep a few of these waterproof bags with you for your electronics too. It can double as a to go wallet too and add your ID, cards, and money to keep everything in one simple place. A ziplock bag with the double lock or zipper works just fine too, and who cares who’s judging how fancy your plastic is *queue hair flip*
🌟 Take care of that skin! Make sure you are COVERED in sunscreen at all times. The desert sun hits different, I burn when I forget sunscreen so no one is safe! Here is the one I got to try recently from Influenster that I have been keeping next to the door to apply before I leave.
🌟 Messes happen. I don’t know what it is about summertime and pool season that make random messes happen much more often. Maybe it’s just me and my love of life-sized frozen daiquiris…or everyone else in the city loving these and spilling them EVERYWHERE, but I have NEVER regretted being prepared. These wet wipes are my current go to.
🌟Like I said earlier, the sun out here hits different. You have to protect yourself, especially if you’re planning on spending the day out in it. Keep your eyes protected with my favorite new line of sun shades.
These come in like 9 different polarized shade colors. They are gorgeous! Pick up a different color for each person in your squad!
🌟This one is a summer time essential for sure! You have to have the summertime vibes floppy vacation hat! It gives you an automatic vacation, carefree vibe that we all need at the pool. It signals everyone else, “Oh I’m on VACATION vacation!” and I’m sure it helps trigger actual vacation hormones in your body (lol )
