Although there is plenty to see and do around the island, most guests don't feel the need to seek activities outside the resort. And why would they? Atlantis has one of the world's largest outdoor marine habitats and aquariums, as well as waterparks, beaches and a variety of swimming pools — all free for resort guests. Guests can also book the onsite close-encounter adventures with sea lions, sharks, rays and dolphins, as well as scuba, snorkel, fish and enjoy traditional resort activities like golf and tennis. There are casinos in every lodging tower, and theaters and comedy shows. For details, go to atlantis.com/thingstodo.aspx
