 Golden Nugget


The Golden Nugget has become a high-end and luxury-focused resort for Downtown. 


Make Reservations at the Golden Nugget LV



The opulent hotel lobby of the Golden Nugget. 


The world's largest gold nugget on display, Hand of Faith, is show-cased just north of the lobby.  The nugget was discovered in Wedderburn, Australia in 1980.


The Hand of Faith weighs 61 pounds, 11 ounces!   According to the plaque, the nugget was found using a metal detector--it was lying only six-inches under the surface of the ground. 


The hall between the hotel lobby (to the left) and the famous shark tank pool (to the right).


The shark tank of the Golden Nugget--part of the swimming pool.  Come swim with the sharks!  Hotel guests can slide through the tube.


The shark tank is part of a $30 million complex which features a three-story slide.  The shark tank is one of two large aquariums at the resort--the other, smaller one is in the lobby of the Rush tower.


The pool on the south-side of the shark tank.
