Planning a Couples Getaway? Top Things to Do in Las Vegas!

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, you may be looking for a way to bring back the excitement and ignite your relationship or to simply have some fun with your better half. And what better place to do that than in Vegas? While Sin City is renowned for its gambling and parties, it can be the perfect getaway for romance. If you’re lost for ideas on what to do in Vegas, here are some options.

Get Engaged

Have you ever considered Vegas as the ideal place to get engaged? Because it is! Not only is it beautiful, there are so many cool places you can get engaged. Think about it—asking your significant other to marry you with the Grand Canyon in the background or even while at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant=#totalrelationshipgoals. If you want to make it completely Las Vegas style, why not drop down on one knee in front of the Bellagio fountains? There are so many picturesque and iconic places to choose for the second best day of your life (the first day being your actual wedding day). If you’ve already popped the question, you can elope and get married at the famous Little White Wedding Chapel or choose one of the many chapels in and around Vegas.

Take a Foodie or Wine & Spirit Tasting Tour

While in Las Vegas, why not check out the local food tours and wine and spirit tastings? There are so many great places to taste great drinks like various types of scotch, different wines and other spirits. When it comes to Las Vegas, they really know how to get the right drinks rolling too. Now, if you love to try different types of cuisine—from gourmet to street food—there’s something for every palate. You and your Valentine will have an incredible time eating and drinking your way through the strip. After you’ve finished your tours, you can always paint the town and dance the night away at one of their many clubs like the famous Hakkasan where Deejays like Steve Aoki and Tiesto have spun. If that isn’t your thing, you can always head to a lounge or many top jazz and blues clubs in Vegas.

Dine finely

If restaurant hopping isn’t your thing, then skip the tour and book a table at one of the many options Vegas has to offer. While on your couple’s getaway to Vegas, checking out the local food is a must. The Canyon Ranch Grill, Andrea’s, and Sinatra are just a few options to satisfy your appetite while in the city that never sleeps. The food will be beautiful enough to take photos of, satisfying enough to hold you over, and amazing enough to give you unforgettable memories.

Take in a show

If there’s one thing that you MUST do while in Vegas, it is seeing a show. Las Vegas has shows like no other place in the world. The shows are known for being sexy, sassy and unforgettable. Shows like Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil is incredible for any MJ fan and if you want to see live performers, you can always catch Jennifer Lopez, Criss Angel and even Donny & Marie!

See the sites

If you have a list of things to do while in Vegas, one thing you do not want to miss out on is sightseeing. Vegas is one of the most beautiful places in the world because of its natural beauty and also because of its man-made beauty. The tall towers in the background are simply amazing. A must-see while in Vegas is the Red Rock Canyon for so many reasons. You can rent a convertible, put your top down and take a one-way, very scenic, 13-mile drive, or you can hike several of the trails. Keep in mind this is just one of the things to see while in Vegas; there are dozens of other attractions such as the botanical gardens, casinos, The Strip, the famous Fremont Street, the Bellagio fountains, museums, and even the Hoover Dam Bypass.

Heading to Las Vegas for a couple’s getaway is a genius idea on so many levels. So many romantic restaurants, experiences to take in and endless possibilities can happen while in Las Vegas. One thing for sure: this city will keep that spark burning. Keep these awesome things in mind as you make your way to one of the most exciting, yet romantic cities in the world this Valentine’s Day weekend. Remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!
