    OK,

    So I've been to Vegas many times but never really sat out at the pool. I'm thinking that this next trip I may want to spend some time lounging by the hotel pool. So what do I do with my wallet, money etc...? Do I leave it in the room safe?
    I'll be traveling solo.

    What do you do?

    This depends what I am going to do...

    If am just lounging around:
    I'll wear my shorts and just bring some money in my wallet. Even if I am not going in to the pool I'll still go back to the hotel room afterwards to show and change (otherwise get hot and sweaty at the pool this time of year) but sometimes I'll want to hit the casino for a little bit first, so I take a few extra bucks with me, but otherwise not too worried about wallet and money getting wet.

    If I am going to go swimming:
    Then I will be going down in my swim trunks. I will bring along my room key, some ID and just a few bucks if I want to order some drinks. I put this all in a ziploc baggie and seal it shut - my trunks have a pocket with velcro that can be closed so the stuff doesn't fall out of my pocket.
    My wife's swimsuit doesn't have pockets so she'll either tuck any money or key in a ziploc baggie in her swimsuit to the side of her breasts or just tuck it in a shoe if she is going swimming while I am laying there.

    What he said. I put ID, room key, some money for drinks, book, suntan lotion, maybe a cigar in a small bag and take it with me. I'll wear swim trunks, sandals, and ugly ass shirt down to the pool. Find a spot, sit back, and relax.

    One piece of advice: The concrete around the pools gets VERY hot in the summer. Unless you get a chair right near the water, wear your sandals to the edge of the pool. I learned the hard way a few summers ago: I made the long walk from my chair to the restroom at Rio in bare feet. It was painful going there, twice as painful coming back!

    I am also going solo and will be at Caesars in a couple of weeks. What i do is take enough money for a drink, snacks, etc., i bring my ID, TR card, and key card. I bring a towel and grab a chair near the pool (i go real early). I use board shorts, they can be worn in the casino going to the pool and back to the room because they have a water repellent quick dry material.
    My ID, cash, key cards are with me even in the water because of the cinch fly Velcro/zip. I scope out a chair/lounge and put the rest of my stuff......rash guard tee, sandals, hat, sunscreen, and towel on the chair in case i'm in the water, people will know the chair/lounger is taken. But the important stuff.....money, ID, and cards, are with me at all times. The reason i love board shorts and rash tees is because i can exit the water and continue on to the casino without hanging around the pool to dry off. Also, rash tees have a built in U/V protector. They are more expensive than regular swim trunks but well worth it.

    @Darren............i was at Rio in May, that's when the temps hit over 100. Yes, i also suggest the same thing, wear your sandals or ankle socks going to the snack bar/restroom. If anyone has seen the movie "10" with Dudley Moore, you'll know what i mean about walking to/from your chair without "protection".
