Wedding parties are almost as ubiquitous in Vegas as taxicabs, along with nightlife, restaurants, shopping, shows and more. And with all of the things to do in Las Vegas for couples, it’s no wonder they’re drawn to this city from all over the world. But with so many possibilities − restaurants, sites to see, and the best hotels for couples − you may need a little help with planning. So, we’ve put together this handy list of some of the most romantic things to do in Las Vegas to make it easy for you to glance through, then get back to gazing into each other’s eyes as quickly as possible.
Really, Vegas itself is one big romantic spot. But, 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, but each perfectly suited to those with love in their hearts.
Gondola ride at The Venetian
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. Cuddle up together, sip some champagne, and let your gondolier do the driving (and singing) as you gently cruise the indoor/outdoor waterway.
When it comes to Las Vegas attractions for couples, one in particular rises to the top. Take your love to all new heights aboard the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. The 360-degree views rising 550 feet above the center of the Strip are the perfect way to capture that walking-on-air feeling of being deeply, madly in love.
Or, take your relationship to an entirely different altitude with a ride aboard a Maverick helicopter. Soar high above the Strip and/or through the Grand Canyon for views that are as unique, unforgettable and awe-inspiring as the love you share.
Canyon Ranch Spa for two
If love is the ultimate feel-good experience, a couple’s spa day at Canyon Ranch Spa at The Venetian is a close second. Pamper one another and be pampered by the expert staff with special couples’ experiences, designed for intimacy, and sure to soothe and relax in just the way your love deserves to be soothed and relaxed.
The Beatles Love show
It’s right there in the name. All you need is The Beatles’ Love show at the Mirage. Take a magical mystery trip back to the ’60s and watch the history and music of the world’s most influential music group unfold before your eyes. If love is to be treasured, Love is the treasure map.
A Cirque du Soleil show is a sensual feast for the eyes and the mind. Combining world-class acrobatics and erotic storytelling, Zumanity is a one-of-a-kind couples’ night out that celebrates love in jaw-droppingly exciting ways.
Top of the World Stratosphere
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 Vegas Strip at the Top of the World restaurant at The Stratosphere? From up here, the views are almost as breathtaking as your love.
A Vegas tradition since 1970, Battista’s Hole in the Wall immerses visitors in old-time Vegas memorabilia, while simultaneously surrounding them in the kind of warm, Italian embrace that makes you want to stay for another round of pasta.
If a little touch of class is what it takes to rock your love boat, you can’t do much better than the SW Steakhouse. This Forbes’ four-star winning steakhouse features unparalleled steaks in an unparalleled setting − including nightly shows in the adjacent Lake of Dreams.
When your love for great food is as great (or nearly) as your love for each other, Delmonico Steakhouse is the place to dine. If nothing is striking your fancy on the menu, not to worry − the chef will make a personalized menu based on your likes.
No one speaks the language of love like the French, and no one does French cuisine like the world-renowned Le Cirque. The opulent dining room and inimitable French cuisine combine for an unforgettable experience for any couple.
Italian cuisine with distinct California influences all brought to you by Emmy-winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentis. With its warm colors, comfortable seating and huge retractable windows offering breathtaking views of the Bellagio fountains, Giada is one of Vegas’ most enticing date location.
Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman’s iconic steakhouse at the Plaza Hotel is a must-visit for those looking for fine dining in downtown Las Vegas. Oscar himself still shows up to tell stories from his days in the law profession adding to the old-school feel of this classic Vegas eatery.
