When it comes to passion and romance, Vegas is a city full of endless possibilities. Whether you love the bright lights of the bustling city, the fancy hotels and resorts, the peace and quiet of nature, or the arts and culture, Sin City has them all for you. Here are the most romantic places you and your partner can enjoy — and must visit — in and near Las Vegas.
10 Romantic Places to Visit in Las Vegas
1. The Strip
Right at the heart of Vegas, you’ll find casinos, hotels, nightclubs, resorts, and restaurants all down one street. From fine dining, live shows, and shopping to simply taking a stroll to enjoy the bright lights at night, the vibrant energy of the Strip itself is one you shouldn’t miss.
Want to kick things up a notch? Maverick Helicopter's tours can take your date nights sky-high. Whether you want to soar high above the glittering Strip and marvel at famous landmarks from a bird’s-eye view, or you want to experience premier dining and a luxurious limo ride, they have options to make your moments extra special.
The Strip has so many romantic spots to offer – so let’s dive in a bit deeper.
Standing tall and proud outside the casino is a beautiful fountain with incredible lights and an ever-changing soundtrack. The dancing fountain show, which occurs every half hour at daytime and every 15 minutes at night, can truly make your date even more extraordinary. Oh, and did we mention it’s free?
Walk inside and you’ll see the spectacular Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens that’s perfect for nature lovers. It showcases various types of flowers, plants, and trees, along with miniature ponds and other water exhibits. Plus, it was designed with Feng Shui to encourage love, romance, prosperity, and positive energy.
Another must-see is the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art that features renowned pieces for tourists and locals. The displays rotate throughout the year, but look out for artwork by Diane Arbus, Picasso, and Takashi Murakami. If you and your partner are art enthusiasts, this romantic spot in Las Vegas is one you’ll delight in.
3. The Venetian Resort
Can’t visit Venice just yet? Not a problem! The gondola rides at The Venetian are just as authentic as the ones in Italy.
Spend your date floating through the Venice Canal with the streetscape of the Grand Canal Shoppes, or cruising around the exterior of the hotel. Sip some champagne and be serenaded by the gondolier with romantic Italian songs.
Want to make it a double date? Four-person gondolas are available too. And while you can bring your own camera, a professional photographer is ready to capture your heartfelt moment.
4. The Eiffel Tower
As the City of Love, Paris is known as a place for passion and romance. And we have just that in Las Vegas!
The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas is amazing at any time of the day, but even more during evenings. It has an observation deck 46 stories above the city, offering visitors a magnificent 360-degree view of Sin City. Guest ambassadors are also ready to greet visitors, point out Vegas landmarks, and share interesting facts about the city.
You and your partner can memorialize your love by attaching a lock (and throwing away the key) at a fence leading up to the viewing deck. You can also dine atop the Eiffel Tower, complete with exquisite French cuisine and ambiance.
5. Ethel M Chocolate Factory
A haven for candy lovers, this chocolate factory makes cremes, peanut brittle, truffles, and many other sweet treats daily. They have tours to show you how their artisan chocolates are made through a long window. And they’re offering chocolate and wine tastings for sweet tooth individuals. For chocolate lovers, an outdoor tasting experience is available, with an option to add wine in the selection.
Don’t forget to head outside to enjoy their free Botanical Cactus Garden. Spanning over three acres, the garden boasts over 300 species of desert plant life. It has an easy and peaceful walkway, perfect if you want some alone time with your partner.
6. The Parks
Vegas is more than just the city life. If you’re more into nature and the outdoors, you have a ton of amazing options to choose from.
Marvel at amazing, natural rock formations at Bryce Canyon National Park. True, it's not technically in Vegas, but it's within a very reasonable drive (and more than worth it!). It features striking gold, red, tan, and white rock spires that stand out in contrast with the green forests. For adventurous couples, going for a hike or taking pictures near the cliffside is a must.
Just 40 minutes outside the Strip, you get to enjoy a quiet picnic, leisurely stroll, and picturesque views at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. An oasis on its own, it has wide meadows, cliffs, and hiking trails surrounding the red one-story ranch house.
As the oldest in Nevada, the Valley of Fire State Park features vibrantly-colored sandstone formations. If you’re up for outdoor activities like biking, camping, and hiking, this geological park is perfect for you. It also has famed spots for picnicking and sightseeing, if you just want to take in the beautiful views.
7. The STRAT Hotel, Casino, & SkyPod
Love can make you feel like you’re on top of the world. And The STRAT can literally do just the same.
Climb to the top of the 1,149-foot Stratosphere tower and you’ll find thrilling rides that fly you over the edge of the building.
Want a little less intensity? Enjoy a romantic meal 800-feet above the Strip at Top of the World restaurant. Grab some drinks at 107 SkyLounge or have some dessert at 108 Eats. And don’t miss the breathtaking views from their observation deck.
8. The Museums
Las Vegas is home to many artistic and creative people, so it’s no surprise that the city overflows with options for art lovers.
Want to meet your celebrity crush? Check out Madame Tussauds. From Beyonce, Drake, and Miley to MARVEL superheroes, you can get up close and personal with the stars.
Another romantic date place (and photo op location) is The Neon Museum, home to restored and preserved vintage Vegas signs. If your idea of quality time with your partner includes learning about the history and culture of Vegas, then this is a perfect spot for you.
If you’re more into science, the Museum of Dream Space has colorful and immersive rooms with lights and effects that make you experience the arts. Walking through one magical art room to another, you’re sure to create unforgettable moments with your loved one.
9. The Grand Canyon
Want to go on a little romantic getaway? There are tons of road trip destinations from Vegas, and the Grand Canyon is a sure must.
Head to the South Rim to indulge in breathtaking views of the whole park. Ride the Grand Canyon Railway and embark on a two-hour journey around the iconic landmark. At the West Rim, you can test your bravery on a 4,000-feet high see-through glass skywalk, where you can see through the canyon hole.
Ready to go all-in? Go on a helicopter ride over the canyon and see the whole park from up above.
10. Lake Havasu
Donning more than 400 miles of stunning coastline, Lake Havasu is the perfect spot for couples who love water sports and outdoor activities — and right next door to Las Vegas.
Here you can go fishing, kayaking, and water skiing. You can also choose to go golfing, off-roading, or trekking through the trails. If you want to disconnect and relax, the lake has beautiful beaches and offers different campsites.
Whether you want to spend your date nights in fancy hotels and restaurants, in artistic spots, or out in Mother Nature, Las Vegas will always have the perfect romantic places for you and that special someone.
