Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil

It takes one heck of a performer to tackle Michael Jackson's legendary musical catalogue, but just as he was no ordinary artist, Cirque Du Soleil is no ordinary show. If the music isn't enough to get your kids into the action, the effects are sure to do the trick. Lights, gravity-defying acrobatics, state-of-the-art hip-hop infused choreography with the King of Pop's signature dance moves fuse seamlessly for what Rolling Stone called "A virtual parade of WOW moments."

Mandalay Bay Beach

Mandalay Bay Beach

The Mandalay Bay Pool was voted by Trip Advisor as one of the best pools in the U.S. but it's far more than a swimming pool--it's 11 acres of outdoor h2o fun! Located at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, it encompasses four pools surrounded by palm trees, fountains, and waterfalls, including a massive wave pool (with waves up to twelve feet high) and a sandy beach consisting of 2,700 tons of real sand. There is also a lazy river, perfect for relaxing on a scorching summer day. Rafts and inner tubes are available for rental, as are daybeds, cabanas, gazebos, bungalows, and villas for guests with deep pockets. But if you don't want to spend the money, there are plenty of chairs and chaise lounges open to all on a first come first served basis. A beachside casino, couple of restaurants and bars, and shops offering such items as sunscreen, sunglasses, T-shirts, swimwear, beach bags, and jewelry complete the scene. In other words, Mandalay Bay Beach is an oasis in the desert where guests of all ages can easily spend a good part of the day.

Delano Art Series

Rotated quarterly, and offering a variety of mediums from photography and 2-dimensional wall art to fashion and sculpture, the Delano Art Series provides an added dimension to the Delano Las Vegas experience.
