From some of the most romantic restaurants in the country to sexy shows and erotic adventures, Las Vegas has a little bit for everyone – no matter how laid back or crazy you want to get.
Romantic Things to do in Las Vegas
A Couples Spa Date at a 5-Star luxury Spa on the Las Vegas Strip
What woman doesn’t love to be pampered? Start the day off early with a relaxing couples spa date at one of the many 5-star Las Vegas Spas. Check out our list of the best spas in Las Vegas to get an idea of what’s out there.
The Chandelier Lounge at the Cosmo
The Chandelier Lounge at the Cosmopolitan is another great spot to kick off your night. The lounge is a multi-story experience, wrapped in Swarovski crystals, that houses three separate bars. It’s one of the most romantic hotspots in Vegas, with some of the best hand-crafted cocktails in the city.
One of the most breathtaking and romantic spots in Las Vegas is Fountains of Bellagio. The area in front of the show is a favorite proposal spot. Between the beautifully choreographed fountains and the romantic atmosphere, this is a great place to start of the night.
On Valentine’s Day, the Fountains run from 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. every 1/2 hour, and then from 8:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. the show runs every 15 minutes.
The Eiffel Tower Experience
Even better than watching the Bellagio fountains from the ground is watching the show from the top of our Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower Experience lets you take a ride to the top of the tower where you will find one of the best 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Valley.
The High Roller at the Linq
The High Roller is not only Romantic, but there’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world. Measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller is the largest enclosed Ferris wheel in the world.
Night time tickets are $32 per person, or you can ride one of the Happy Hour Cabins starting at $40 per person and enjoy an open bar while you take in the sights. They also allow you to rent out entire cabins, which some couples use for one of a kind weddings that are unlike anything else you will find in Vegas.
