Golden Nugget

The Golden Nugget hotel and casino is in downtown Las Vegas on Fremont Street. It has undergone a huge renovation and is now what I think is the best deal in Vegas. This is a picture of our room in the Carson Tower. As you can see the room is good, even though it’s in the oldest tower. It was $47 including taxes for the night. Sometimes it’s only $39 after tax.

Have you ever wanted to swim with sharks? At the Gold Nugget you can!


The Golden Nugget pool in Las Vegas wraps around an aquarium full of sharks, sting rays, and fish. There is even a tube slide going through the middle of the aquarium. Your kids will find this amazing. 

 They even have a tube slide that goes through the shark tank! It’s a pretty fast slide, so you may not see anything. This is a picture of my son popping out of the tube slide after going through the shark tank!

You can buy a day pass to hang out at the Golden Nugget pool. The pool passes for non-hotel guests cost $25 Monday through Thursday and $35 Friday through Sunday. Kids under the age of 6 are free.

The pool features a 200,000 gallon shark tank aquarium, three-story complex, and 17 private cabanas. You can climb 30 feet in the air to go down a body slide through the tank into the pool. You go through the pool so fast that you can’t really see anything.
