Las Vegas is packed with tons of great things to experience . That’s especially true for couples seeking romance, fun and excitement. Read on to learn more about some of the options you have for play days and date nights on — and off — the Strip!
Grand Canyon Tour
Just because you’re staying in Las Vegas overnight doesn’t mean you can’t tackle excursions elsewhere throughout the day! You and yours can take advantage of a Grand Canyon Tour to soak up one of the world’s most breathtaking views. This magnificent Southwestern wonder is available for exploration by both land and sky. Those prepared to live on the wild side can hop aboard a helicopter and do a jaw-dropping flyover of the west rim — while traveling between the red canyon walls and gazing down at the muddy Colorado River that runs through the center. If you prefer to stay put on the ground, there are plenty of bus, van and jeep tours to choose from as well. Are you brave enough to step onto the Grand Canyon Skywalk? The circular bridge features a glass-bottomed walkway that hangs over the edge of the canyon.
When doing Vegas as a couple, consider the dozens of luxurious massage studios all across town. Whether at a local hotspot like A Touch of Las Vegas Spa or a luxurious Strip resort escape, like at the highly-rated Spa At Encore, couples massages are an easy way to relieve tense muscles and relax with your significant other.
Pampering doesn’t have to be limited to massage therapy. Facials, saunas, pools, gyms and other amenities can leave you and your partner feeling refreshed too. Try spending a day at a spa that has ample space for hanging out with someone special. Looking for a taste of true luxury? The Spa at ARIA has multiple relaxation rooms, including co-ed spaces, a salt room and a hot stone room.
Dine at the Perfect Restaurant
Wind down the day with a romantic dinner at one of the best restaurants on the Strip. Examples of fantastic French dining include Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace and Joel Robuchon at the MGM Grand. Top steakhouses include Bavette’s at Park MGM and Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian. Of course, you can always check out Giada at the Cromwell, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace or Wolfgang Puck’s new Spago at the Bellagio to see what some of the most famous celebrity chefs are up to in Vegas.
Observation decks are among the very best Vegas attractions for adults. If chilling out at an open bar with a view sounds up your alley, snag tickets for the High Roller at The LINQ outdoor promenade. The observation wheel is the tallest in the world, providing unmatched views of the Vegas Strip and beyond. Chocolate tastings, yoga classes and even wedding ceremonies are available to those who hope to go for a spin.
Turnt Up Tours
If you’re looking to hit the best pool parties and nightclubs around, you’ll love Turnt Up Tours! Hopping between a number of Sin City hotspots, you won’t need to worry about cover charges or transportation. In addition, you’ll be told all about drink discounts, and you can BYOB onto the party bus for optimal pregaming! This is a great way to meet (and party with) likeminded couples. Pro-tip: Use promo code Lavish75 at checkout for a major discount!
Take a Foodie Walk
If you can’t decide where to eat, a foodie tour is a perfect solution. Food Tours of America offers Vegas tours in and around the Grand Canal Shoppes on the Strip as well as Downtown near Fremont Street. Guest enjoy stops at a number of restaurants and retail locations in just a few hours. However, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours has really mastered the concept with a lineup of walking tours that visit several top restaurants in a single night. Enjoy signature dishes and drinks without worrying about reservations. You’ll also learn some fun facts and history about Vegas along the way.
Wild things to do in Vegas aren’t limited to helicopter tours or thrill rides. Couples looking for sultry entertainment will find no shortage of dazzling dancers and impressive performances. Classic strip clubs are aplenty and you can catch a limo to these venues and down two drinks for just $40 per person. There are also plenty of sexy circus-like performances to suit your fancy, including the adults-only Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil at New York-New York.
Drinks with a View
Some of the best cocktail lounges in Vegas have spectacular views perfect for setting a romantic mood. Check out Skyfall Lounge at the Delano or the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay, both of which offer great views from the south end of the Strip. Air Bar lives up to its name with drinks near the top of the 1,149-foot-tall Stratosphere tower while the Eiffel Tower Restaurant has a great mid-level view from Paris Las Vegas across from the Bellagio fountains.
Even if the Strip is your main destination, set aside at least one day to check out Downtown Las Vegas. Walk underneath the world’s largest LED canopy at the Fremont Street Experience or check out the bars and restaurants at the Fremont East district. The Downtown Container Park is a cool detour with shops, bars and restaurants built from old shipping containers and you can’t go wrong with restaurants like Carson Kitchen and Therapy. But you may have the most fun exploring the exhibits at the Mob Museum, dedicated to organized crime, and the Neon Museum, featuring an outdoor “graveyard” of vintage Vegas signs and marquees.
