More people get married in Vegas than anywhere else in the world. So naturally couples love coming here anniversaries as well. Behind the ringing slots machines and excitement of Vegas nightlife, Las Vegas really is one of the most romantic destinations in the world – and tons of fun! There is no better way to remind your better half how much you love them, then with a trip to fabulous Las Vegas. The following can be found in our Las Vegas for Couples section as well:
Vegas has something for everyone, and if you are looking for romance you fall within the everyone category. Almost every hotel has a number of rooms made just for couples, and many of the off-Strip casinos are positively beautiful. Perhaps the top five most romantic places to stay in Vegas are as follows:
The Venetian – Something about little Italy brings out the romance in everyone. Add in the gondola rides, wonderful restaurants, and couples-friendly atmosphere and it is easy to see why this would be the top choice.
Paris Las Vegas – From the piano bars to the Eiffel Tower, Paris may be the official romance capital of the world, but can you play blackjack while you sip martinis and gawk at the Eiffel Tower in Paris? We didn’t think so.
Bellagio – Perhaps the most opulent hotel on the Strip, from the art gallery to the gardens your stay will be filled with beauty. Of course the amazing water show only adds to the mood.
Luxor – One does not generally think of ancient Egypt when they think of romance, but the Luxor remains one of the most unique structures in Las Vegas, and Fusia restaurant and lounge within one of the most romantic dining areas. There spa the Oasis is also a favorite.
Wynn – Before CityCenter was built it was the most expensive property on the Strip. From the romantic Lagoon to Tryst located beneath a waterfall, Wynn has a lot to offer couples.
Dining is always a consideration on weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, or just for when you want to spend some time with that special someone. We’ve already mentioned Fusia within the Luxor. Some additional popular destinations for couple’s dining are:
Top of the World – Within the Stratosphere, this restaurant offers perhaps the best view of the Strip in town.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant – Dine while you take in the splendor of the water show at Bellagio.
Mon Ami Gabi – Also inside the Paris, and right on the Strip. Say what you will about the French, they know romance.
Mix – Offers excellent food high atop THEhotel.
Alize – More dining in the sky at the popular party spot Palms.
Looking for that special something for sweetie? You can find it on the Strip and some of the best known shops include:
Tiffany’s at Crystals – Let your credit card say “I love you”, you’re sure to find something you’ll both remember here.
Via Bellagio – Some unique high-end jewelry for your lover.
Jane Carroll’s Creations or Godiva Chocolatier – For sweethearts with a sweet tooth, at Caesar’s and Planet Hollywood respectively.

Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian – Like the forum shops, this will have just about anything you need, plus a gondola ride.
It’s virtually impossible to run out of things to do in Vegas. If you’ve seen all the sites from the Bellagio water show to the Fremont Street Experience, and you’ve caught some of the wonderful shows for couples like Zumanity in the New York-New York, or Phantom at the Venetian, try something that will really get your adrenalin going... outside of the bedroom that is. Here is some fun stuff to do for couples while you’re here:
Take a Helicopter tour of the Strip. These take off just as the sun is setting and offer the most beautiful view of the city possible.
Try some indoor sky diving on Convention Center Dr. Or even do the real thing. Flights take off periodically.
How about some friendly competition at Pole Positions, one of the most enjoyable go-cart tracks anywhere located right across from the Palm Hotel.
To get out of the city and closer to nature for a day, the ATV Hidden Valley Tour is just about the most fun you will ever have.
And if the go-carts weren’t enough for you, check out the Exotic Driving Experience at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where you can drive your dream car really, really fast.
Other things you can fill your day with include Bodies The Exhibition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition in Luxor, CSI: The Experience in MGM, the Secret Garden and the Mirage, roller coasters at New York-New York, Sahara, Circus Circus, and Stratosphere, or check out some art at Bellagio’s Gallery of Fine Art or CityCenter Fine Art Collection.
