Love really is all around. And we're here to let you celebrate Valentine's Day in Las Vegas your way. Vegas itself is one big romantic spot. Looking a little closer, you can see that this ever-changing city is made up of myriad romantic places, each unique in its own way, each perfectly suited to those who love … love. We’ve put together a guide of some of the most romantic things to do in Las Vegas and made it easy for you to skim through, so you can get back to the love – for friends, partners or even yourself. Big or small, there are plenty of ways to show the love.
All for Love, and Love for All
Inclusivity is what the city strives for, and no place in the destination speaks that truth more than Downtown Las Vegas. Love in all its forms is celebrated most prominently on the walls of buildings throughout the area. Many of the Downtown art murals feature messages of love and are beautiful places to capture your love in picture form. Instagram can’t handle your selfie. And since you do romance a little differently, stroll over to Binion’s Gambling Hall and pull up a seat at one of the coolest saloons in Las Vegas. Whiskey Licker Up Saloon is essentially a bar in the round – as in, it rotates a full 360 degrees. Cozy up on a stool together and watch the scenery change. You’ll get an awesome view of Fremont Street below while listening to good music and imbibing in great drinks. You know, it’s been said that being in love makes one feel like they’re on top of the world. So why not make the feeling literal with a romantic meal 800 feet above the Strip at the Top of the World restaurant at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod? From up here, the views are almost as breathtaking as your love. Keep your love going sky high with a private cabin on the 550-foot-tall High Roller observation wheel at The LINQ Hotel + Experience. Sip a cocktail or glass of champagne while marveling at the views of the Vegas Valley and each other.
Love Knows No Bounds
You’ve been a couple for a long (long?) time and you’re ready to break the typical Valentine’s Day routine. While thoughtful, you honestly can’t force yourself to laugh at another corny card, and store-bought chocolates or bouquets seem so blah. Let Vegas help bring the spark back – starting with a flower upgrade. Step inside the lobby atrium at Wynn Las Vegas and transport yourself and your loved one to a dreamscape of flora and fauna that will leave you breathless. Continue through the lobby to your dinner destination at Jardin. Remember what your love is all about while enjoying the freshest seasonal cuisine in a stunning conservatory setting overlooking shimmering pools and manicured gardens. Go ahead and make one more upgrade on the holiday. Leave your passports behind because there’s no need to travel all the way to Italy for a romantic ride in an authentic Venetian gondola. The Venetian Resort Las Vegas wants you to cuddle up together, sip some champagne and let your gondolier do the driving (and singing) as you gently cruise the indoor/outdoor waterway. Now that’s amore. The next day, bask in your love glow at the Temple Pool at the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Go big and get a cabana right next to the pool or reserve lounges in the warm sun. This is a Valentine’s Day that is sure to keep the fires burning for years to come.
Girl, You Know It’s True
Friends are the family you choose. So, this year celebrate the ladies that mean so much to you in the most loving way – a luxurious Galentine’s Day in Las Vegas. You’ll know you chose right as soon as you all walk into the stunning lobby at Bellagio Resort and Casino. The fragrance from the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and the glittering Dale Chihuly glass ceiling installation is only the beginning of your epic stay. Make the weekend sweeter and splurge on one of the spacious suites for the perfect blend of beauty and elegance. Insider tip: Ask for one with a view of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio to further strengthen the bonds of friendship. Keep the fountain theme going at Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge while you and the ladies take in that spectacular show over cocktails in the lounge or front and center with a window seat at dinner. Sushi was made for sharing and you’ll get some of the freshest options at Yellowtail. With the girl squad together, it’s time to conquer Vegas’ nightlife scene. Set up shop at Rosina Cocktail Lounge at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas for one of the coolest lounge experiences in Las Vegas. With a drink menu featuring categories such as Shaken, Stirred and Bubbly, you’re guaranteed to find the cocktail of your dreams. And since you’re celebrating, press the “champagne call button” to indulge in bubbly by the glass or bottle. After a night of festivities, you’ll need some reviving, so embark on the Nobu Nagomi Ritual at Qua Spa in Caesars Palace. Including a floral foot bath, a massage and facial, you’ll all feel renewed to bask in the memories you’ve made.
The long Valentine’s Day weekend is the perfect time to celebrate love in all its manifestations. Leave behind the pressures and expectations associated with the holiday and come celebrate in a destination that’s authentically you.
