Romantic Things To Do In Las Vegas
There are so many activities for couples to enjoy in Las Vegas. This really is the city of entertainment and there are lots of activities and attractions for you to enjoy. Las Vegas is the perfect destination to bring romance into your life!
1. Enjoy At Gondola Ride At The Venetian Hotel
What could be more romantic than a Venetian Gondola Ride? We may be thousands of miles away from the real Grand Canal, but you can have a great experience in The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. It is nothing like the real thing, but it is a lot of fun!
The gondoliers are the ones who make this experience very special. They will sing songs for you, just like the Venetian gondoliers.
All of the gondolas are for four people, but it may be that you don't want to share your romantic moment with another couple. Seats in the shared gondola for four people are $21 per person. To reserve a private gondola for two people is $84.
The experience is pricey, but unique. The duration of the ride does vary a little, but usually it is around 10 minutes. Only you can decide if that makes the price worth it.
All tickets have to be bought in person. This means that on Valentine's Day you will most probably be standing in a line with a lot of other romantic couples! The ticket sales office opens at 10 am, but if you are all set on taking a gondola ride on 14th February we would suggest that you arrive prior to that time.
You are given a set time to return for your gondola ride. If you get the choice we would suggest an outdoor ride close to sunset. The choice between the indoor and the outdoor ride can be a tricky one. The indoor ride is definitely better in the heat of the summer, but it doesn't have the disadvantage that there will be people close by watching you at the side. This can feel a little intrusive! The outdoor ride 'canal' is wider, so those watching are further away. If you experience the outdoor ride in the evening this is a great time to see the lights of The Strip. It is a spectacular sight.
No trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola.
2. The Eiffel Tower Experience
We know that choosing between Venice and Paris is always difficult, but in Las Vegas you really can visit both in one evening. At least you can visit the Vegas version of these two spectacular cities!
The Eiffel Tower replica stands outside The Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. It stands 541 feet tall, which makes it approximately half the height of the original.
Anyone can view the replica from The Strip, but if you want a truly romantic evening you should consider The Eiffel Tower Experience. You can also visit during the day, but the truly romantic time is after dark.
Guests ride up to the observation deck in a glass elevator. Believe me, this is way less scary than the elevator in Paris! The observation deck is 460 feet above The Strip and offers amazing 360 degree views over Las Vegas. The best time to go is after dark. The lights of Las Vegas are a spectacular sight.
The price of The Eiffel Tower Experience is $14 per person during the day, and $19 after 7.30 pm.
If you want to extend your romantic evening you should reserve a table at The Eiffel Tower restaurant. The restaurant is high above The Strip on the eleventh floor. The huge windows allow diners to take in the spectacular view. You get a great view of the Bellagio Fountains show.
The excellent tasting menu is priced at $135 per person, with wine pairings available for an additional $89. The restaurant also offers brunch from 11 am until 2 pm at the weekends. What could be better than sipping on a glass of champagne and enjoying a romantic meal in the Eiffel Tower?
Monday to Friday 9:30am-12:30am

3. Take A Spin On The High Roller
The High Roller is a huge observation wheel located right in the heart of Las Vegas. It is the biggest in the world, with a height of 550 feet. There are 28 cabins, and each fits 40 people. The High Roller takes about 30 minutes to make a full rotation.

This is a Todd English restaurant so you can be assured that the food is always of a high standard.The location of Olives is exceptional. You have an amazing view of the Bellagio Fountains from this restaurant. Ask for a table out on the patio for the very best view.

The Robins Hood was inspired by Walt Disney, who was reputed to have enjoyed a glass of scotch every morning. Why is it called Robins Hood? Walt Disney was a Sagittarius, and that is the sign of the archer. It is a delicious combination of Glenmorangie with dried apricots, Antica Sweet Vermouth, Drambuie, Hennessy and Benedictine.

Another thing which we really like about all the restaurants in The Wynn is that they always have vegetarian and vegan options. If you are wanting a vegetarian or vegan meal for Valentine's Day in Las Vegas your first stop should be The Wynn. It is very rare that you find an hotel committed to offering this choice for guests who make this dietary choice.
