Today is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. Let’s face it, it’s hot everywhere… especially Las Vegas. If you are trying to beat the heat, check out one of these cool treats!

Vegas is known as “Sin City” so it goes without being said that there are frozen alcoholic beverages everywhere you look. Maybe you are under 21, maybe you need a break from the alcohol or maybe you don’t drink at all. We found some great places to grab something to cool you off if you are in a hurry!

Serendipity 3 is located in front of Caesar’s Palace. It is a whimsical atmosphere with an even more creative menu. They are known for their extravagant meals and large portions, but sometimes also their wait. Skip the line and check out their outdoor counter located right by the restaurant entrance. Try their famous frozen hot chocolate, it is a thinner, icier version of a milkshake. While all are delicious, my personal favorite is the strawberry.

Sugar Factory's King Kong Sundae

Besides having the most incredible selection of candy, Sugar Factory also whips out some of the most outrageous sundaes. You can find their restaurant and store right in front of Paris. There is an ice cream counter located in their retail store, besides having yummy baked goods, you can also get a scoop of ice cream, a milkshake… or go big and get a sundae! They put them in a gigantic plastic cup so you can eat them on the go. They have perfected the classic banana split and even slice the bananas into nice little pieces to cut down on the mess. You can’t go wrong with any one you choose.

If you prefer to be in control of your own creation, check out Pinkberry located by Aria’s City Center. Their unique flavors and fresh toppings allow you to control how sinful or responsible your treat ends up. If you are at the other end of the strip, check out the YoFresco Frozen Yogurt shop inside the Venetian. While YoFresco’s are located in numerous places along the strip, this seems to be the best specific location we have found. This self-serve yogurt bar makes you the creator. Grab a brightly colored cup, pick one of their many flavors (cake batter is delicious) and head to their topping bar. Here you will find the most traditional toppings to the most random.

You can find, cool, refreshing and delicious treats all over the strip to help keep you comfortable in the summer heat. From decadent gelato to traditional milkshakes, you can’t go wrong any place you try. Stay cool and happy summer!
