Nevada’s Sin City, the quintessential party destination for young and old. Regardless of your vice, you’ll find it on the Las Vegas Strip among the countless casinos, bars, and gentleman’s clubs. The temptations surrounding Vegas may make it seem like the last place to take your significant other, but the city offers much more than just a few guilty pleasures. Here are a few of the fun and romantic things couples can do in Las Vegas…
Observing the Fountains of Bellagio from the Eiffel Tower
From afternoon to midnight, the Fountains of Bellagio put on a spectacular water show every fifteen minutes for free to all first-time visitors. Thousands of lights and jets of water shoot up to 500 feet in the air while performing a perfectly choreographed dance to music. Most people stopping on the sidewalk will get a glimpse, but the best place for a couple to view the show is on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris Las Vegas across the street. The cost of getting to the top of this half-scale replica is $15, money that you and your partner won’t regret spending.
Top of the World Dinner
When it comes to the best views in the city, Top of the World is hard to beat. On the upper floors of the Stratosphere Tower, Top of the World offers a magnificent wine list and an exquisite menu prepared by world-class chefs. The entire restaurant rotates 360 degrees every 80 minutes, presenting a panoramic view of Las Vegas. Top of the World offers private dining rooms for an unforgettable anniversary dinner.
The Venetian Gondola Ride
A gondola ride at the Venetian is still one of the most popular attractions for couples, even if nothing can truly replace the real thing. In addition to the option to ride inside the hotel and enjoy the Italian architecture or outside in the lagoon with views of the Strip, couples can take 15 minutes to spend together. It is customary to kiss under each bridge in Italy for good luck.
Watch A Show
Las Vegas is the best place to see live shows outside of Broadway. There is something for everybody, from stand-up comedy to live music concerts to Broadway plays. Phantom and Cirque du Soleil are the most popular shows for couples. If you combine a performance with dinner, you’ve got the perfect date night in Las Vegas.
Book a suite on the Strip
Due to the staggering number of options and price ranges, picking a place to stay in Vegas can be overwhelming. It is common to choose a place to stay based on its proximity to the Strip and its affordability. Hotels with affordable rates are usually found within casinos, which can be noisy, and have small rooms with limited amenities. These are fine for most people who spend most of their time away from their rooms, but not so much for couples who want to spend some time together alone. Searching for timeshares online can get more for the same price since many owners will rent out their properties. You can stay at resorts like the Hilton Las Vegas Strip for the same price as a hotel. Apartments in this building offer separate bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and balconies with city views. The master bathroom also has a Jacuzzi tub.
