I don’t think the new Elia Beach Club will ever bring back the craziness that was Rehab but that’s most likely a good thing. Either way many people had been looking forward to the opening of the Elia Beach Club and, with the big crowds in Las Vegas right now its likely to be be a busy place.

Right at the Bellagio Conservatory is their new display just for Summer and, as with all of their displays its worth checking out the amazing display of flowers as statues as well beautiful landscapes. This seasons display is called Eco: A Season of Earthly Awareness and, as the name suggests plays homage to the elements needed for life to flourish.

The Bellagio Conservatory is a must see free attraction and, kudos to MGM Resorts for keeping what is an expensive undertaking going when many other free attractions have closed. If you want to check out the Bellagio Conservatory its open 24 hours a day, seven days a week with no admission charge.

The attraction is located just off the Bellagio main lobby and check in area, one note is that during peak times it does get really busy so by visiting later at night or early morning you will avoid some of the crowds.

If you are interested in the night swims they take place from Thursday’s through Sunday. Its interesting that a big resort such as Caesars Palace is offering night swims as the long norm for swimming pools in Las Vegas is to close early to get the visitors in to their casinos and restaurants. In more recent years with day clubs and night clubs the pool areas have become more of a profit center than just an amenity for hotel guests.
