Hard Rock Hotel's pools might be famous for its hard-core Sunday party, Rehab, but there are acres of non-party pools for guests to enjoy, too. I love this view, taken from one of the top-story suites, where you can see the pool and the Strip. The beach-like atmosphere (there's sand instead of concrete) lends itself to a frozen drink or three. Enjoy! Note: technically, Hard Rock isn't on the Strip, but it's so close that I kept it on the Strip Wanderlist, as "off-Strip" usually indicates downtown, Summerlin or Henderson.
