If you’re wondering where to go on your next romantic getaway, look no further than the fabulous Las Vegas. As they say, “Everything and anything you want to do, you can do it in Las Vegas.” Every year, thousands of couples flock to Vegas as the city’s identity is tied to romance and excitement. In August of this year, an estimated 44,000 marriages have been filed in Nevada, most of it thanks to the booming tourism industry. But if you’re not there to get hitched, there are still hundreds of things to do and places to visit as a couple — here are some fun ideas for you.
Spa Session for Two
There’s no better way to kickstart a romantic vacation than relaxing at a luxurious spa. Las Vegas spas are famous for having excellent accommodations for couples. There’s The Spa at Encore, Qua Baths and Spa, Bali Basics, and many others. Spa packages for couples often include a restorative massage, steam rooms, and treatments complete with therapeutic products and aromatherapy.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Doesn’t a scenic hot air balloon ride over the city scream romance? Companies like Vegas Balloon Rides and Love is in the Air Ballooning offer plenty of early morning trips when the sun isn’t as hot, but make sure you book your slot in advance because balloon riding is quite popular. Going on a balloon ride will get you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and give you and your partner the alone time you deserve.
Zip Line at The Strip
The famed SlotZilla zip line at The Las Vegas Strip is not for the faint of heart, but it’s perfect for thrill-seeking pairs. The zip line launches you off right under the lights of Fremont Street, and it’s also a great way to see the Viva Vision lights show. You can choose to fly vertically at a height of 79ft for a distance of 820ft, or horizontally at a height of 115ft for a distance of 1,640 ft. Either way, it’s sure to get your blood pumping.
Night at the Casino
Couples who aren’t afraid to take risks shouldn’t miss out on the many casinos in Las Vegas. Make sure you know the basic poker terms — your ace-highs, big blinds, and value bets — because you might have to face seasoned opponents and casino regulars. You should also brush up on your card counting, bluffing, and cold reading skills. Play as a team, or compete with your partner to see who ends up higher on the poker leaderboards. But for beginners, The Golden Nugget and Excalibur are great places to start.
Game Room Date
If casinos aren’t your thing, you could also look into the city’s many game and entertainment centers. You’re sure to find an escape room that will suit your tastes, such as the ones offered by Axe Monkeys, Apocalypse Vegas, and HeadzUP Vegas. There are also a variety of arcade centers, mini-golf courses, go-kart tracks, archery centers, and others that are excellent for your game date.
For frugal couples who still want to enjoy wine, you’re in luck because there are a lot of free wine-tasting opportunities in Las Vegas. You can save money by keeping an eye out for the weekly wine-tasting events hosted by Pahrump Valley Winery, Sanders Family Winery, Tahoe Ridge, and many others. There, you’ll get to taste some of the finest wines Las Vegas has to offer.
See a Vegas Show
Las Vegas offers non-stop entertainment, and you’re likely to find a show happening any time of the day, five days a week. Crowds love the Cirque du Soleil, and there are over six different shows held in different hotels. You could also go see music shows and different performances by American Idol, The Voice, and America’s Got Talent winners, as well as touring musicians from all over the world.
Vegas is sure to be a dream come true for you and your partner. You just need to know what you want and where to look. So, what are you waiting for? Book your next trip now!
