The farthest from the strip of any of our recommendations (about 45 minutes east), Lake Las Vegas is one of the most Un-Vegas places in town and one of the better places to stay if you’ve brought the kids along. The Westin here is located right on the lake, with a series of pools, mountain views, and two huge waterslides. The resort also offers great access to the lake—there’s a small beach to lounge on, and guests can rent SUP boards, jet skis, and boats to explore the water. At night, grab a glass of wine and watch the desert sun go down over the water—the patio is outfitted with several fire pits that are perfect for congregating around.
