Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and love is in the air in the City of Sin. No, that wasn’t a typo. Although being largely known for its casinos, Vegas is an incredibly romantic city that is filled to the brim with activities that are perfect for lovebirds.

Start the Day on a High Note
What better way to start Valentine’s Day right than by watching the sun rise over Red Rock Canyon? And, why not take it to another level by doing so in a hot air balloon? Vegas Balloon Rides gives you the chance to see the City of Sin from several hundred feet in the air, providing you with a spectacular bird’s eye view of the city, desert, wildlife, and more. The flight is about an hour long and afterward, you can enjoy a champagne toast for completing your wonderful adventure.
Pamper Your Loved One with Some Professional TLC
Valentine’s Day is all about love, there’s no room for negativity. Make sure the stress of your day to day lives doesn’t put a damper on things with a trip to Spa Aquae. Not only does this spa offer world-class services, it just happens to have one of the best co-ed areas in the city, complete with a hydrotherapy circuit pool. And, when you both are ready to be truly pampered, the spa has couples’ rooms where you can enjoy your massage (like the soothing Couples Desert Stone Therapy Massage) side by side. Mimosas, champagne and spa food are also in abundance.
Head to Paris for Lunch
The Eiffel Tower Experience has recreated one of the most famous landmarks in Europe and we daresay that it’s as romantic as its inspiration. Of note is the observation deck, located over 400 feet above Vegas, which offers guests a 360-degree view of the city. But, before you head there, declare your love for your significant other with a romantic gesture. Many couples memorialize their love by attaching a lock to the fence on the nearby bridge and throwing away the key.
Take a Gondola Ride Around Venice
Head to another exotic locale (this time Venice) and kick your romance game up to the next level with a gondola ride, complete with a singing gondolier. While masterfully singing classics like “That’s Amore’,” he will steer a genuine Venetian gondola through the beautiful Venetian streetscape to further set the mood for romance. And, to commemorate your trip, a professional photographer is on hand to take photos. But, we doubt you’ll have any trouble remembering this experience on your own.
Go on a Romantic Stroll
After your gondola ride, take a romantic walk through one of the most iconic attractions in Vegas to help you work up an appetite before heading to dinner. The Fountains of Bellagio consist of over 1,000 fountains spread out across Lake Bellagio. And, what’s more? They dance (shoot water high in the air) to several different love songs like, “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion.
Enjoy a Delicious Meal
From indie restaurants with a creative flare to world class buffets, the dining scene in Vegas has something to suit every palate. Of note is the SUGARCANE Raw Bar Grill which features globally inspired dishes from three different kitchens, a raw bar, open fire grill and traditional kitchen. Its menu was created by Executive Chef Timon Balloo to make sharing dishes an intimate experience. Plus, it has a fully stocked bar with one of the largest liquor collections in all Vegas. They even have tasty signature cocktails, like the Spice of Love, for you to sample.
Take in a Play
Leave your inhibitions behind and explore your views of lust and love by taking in an adults-only acrobatic production called Zumanity. Created by Cirque du Soleil, this titillating experience (done in an intimate cabaret setting) will be sure to add some sparks to your romantic night out. Provocative and sensual, it’s safe to safe that this steamy show will be unlike any other you’ve seen before.
Whether you are looking for Valentine Day activities that are laid back, romantic, and/or crazy, it’s guaranteed that Vegas has something that you and your loved one will enjoy. And, if you follow the suggestions in the above list, you will be sure to gain some romantic brownie points. Cheers!
