Revel round the clock. Six places to see and be seen:

11 a.m.: The air hockey, billiards and silver foosball tables in a lounge off the lobby. A great way to warm up the wrists for serious slot machine action later.

1:15 p.m.: The sunbathing island in the middle of the InOut pool. A prime spot for reclining on a chaise.

Dusk: The giant rocking chairs at the tip of the SkyGarden. You, a cocktail, the setting sun and a roaring fire in the nearby fire pits.

Midnight: Ocean Way, near the casino and One restaurant. Trippy motion sensors dangling from the ceiling flash lights and emit tropical bird noises -- Caw! Ca-kawww! -- as you walk underneath.

3:05 a.m.: Ultra Lounge, off the casino. Classy, clubby, with a long curved bar and 180-degree ocean views (by day). At any other casino, this would be high-rollers-only, but here it's open to all. Some mogul behind a mound of chips is playing blackjack. Sip your Scotch, and watch from a discreet distance.

Dawn: The rocking chairs again? Why not? They face east, toward the horizon. A perfect way to greet the new day.
