Vegas locals love Rain, and with outstanding lighting, music, space, and features, you'll know why.

Where else can you dance under a fourteen-foot fireball and live to tell about it? Only at Rain! Rain is located in the Palms Resort.

Who needs South Florida when you can see as many bikinis at BiKiNiS? BiKiNiS is another hot spot for spring break. It's a partyin' club where the servers wear, you guessed it, bikinis and swim trunks, and if they get too hot, they take a dip in one of the beach showers.

Oh, and don't forget to bring your swimming duds for the exhibition shower and Jacuzzi. On Sundays, two rooms go Latin. BiKiNiS is open Thursday through Sunday, and is located inside the Rio Suites.
Everybody wants to go to the beach for spring break, right? Well, you can even go to the Beach on your Las Vegas spring break.

In fact, they bill themselves as "the place to party," so it's spring break 365 days a year at the Beach. It's the perfect place to break away any time of the year, but it REALLY hits the spot during spring break. Did we mention the eight bars, "beer bongs" and "body shots?" Nuff said.
