While dinner and a movie is always a fun date, there are times you want to go the extra mile for your partner and do something you’ve never done before. This is where Las Vegas comes in. Whether it’s your anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or another special occasion in the making, spend your date night in Las Vegas for an unforgettable experience to add to your collection of memories together. 

1. Visit the MGM Grand

There’s no better place than Las Vegas to book yourselves into a luxe hotel, get dressed up, share a romantic dinner and then go out on the town and play casino table games at a world-famous casino such as the MGM Grand. Whether you and your date share a passion for casino games, or you’re both trying something new, dinner and a night of gambling are sure to get the good times rolling!

There’s no shortage of options when it comes to incredible food at MGM Grand. Enjoy elevated American cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails at Crush, a sophisticated Three Michelin Star French experience at Joël Robuchon, or contemporary Japanese elegance at Morimoto. With 159 table games, excluding poker tables, and a wide selection of slot games, there’s plenty to entertain yourselves with throughout the night. End your date off with some quality time in one of the luxurious hotel suites for a night to remember.

2. Get your adrenaline pumping

We’re sure you’ve heard that heart-racing activities have the potential to increase emotional arousal and levels of attraction, so if you and your loved one are both adrenaline junkies, Las Vegas is a good place to be!  From indoor skydiving to quad biking and supercar racing, there are a number of amazing activities in and around Las Vegas to give you that thrill you’re after.

3. Treat yourselves to a day at the spa

Of course, if you’re in need of some rest and relaxation, a spa day is on the cards! Spoil yourself and your sweetheart with an array of treatments  – from tranquil massages to facials and body treatments, heated saunas, pools and more.

The Spa at ARIA is the largest Forbes Five Star spa in the world and boasts Japanese stone beds, a Shio salt room and three plush therapy pools. Book a couples massage or Pedi ala Chocolat at the Grand Spa at MGM Grand, or enjoy a body scrub and steam at the Bathhouse Spa at Delano.

4. Take a tour of the Grand Canyon

Put on your cutest hiking boots and get ready for a memorable road trip to one of the greatest landmarks in the US. The Grand Canyon is a 2.5-hour drive from Vegas, making it perfect for an adventurous day trip. If you want to explore the National Park together, you can take a guided tour, a scenic drive over to the Canyon, a helicopter ride to the base, and a boat ride along the river at the bottom – all sure to be incredible experiences. Remember to bring your camera!

5. Explore the Fremont Street Experience

Stroll through the Fremont Street Experience for an encapsulating evening of bright lights, incredible entertainers, delicious food and culture. The LED light shows play every hour on the hour after dark, and there is an incredible range of street performers, artists and musicians, and a selection of bars and restaurants are sure to keep you entertained for hours. This historic six-block entertainment district is a must-see and a great way to spend your date night.

6. Enjoy a romantic gondola ride

It may not be Venice, but it certainly is far more convenient and accessible if you live in the States. The gondola boats themselves are all made in Venice, lending to an authentic experience as you drift along the network of canals. Both indoor and outdoor rides are available, both of which are totally Instagram-worthy and very romantic. 

7. Watch a concert or show

See a classic Vegas show for an unforgettable Las Vegas Valentine’s Day. Besides gambling, nothing is as quintessentially Vegas as show business. From world-class musicians and their delightful impersonators to magic shows, circuses and comedy shows, Las Vegas wasn’t named the Entertainment Capital of the World for nothing. There’s something for everyone from classic shows like Cirque du Soleil and David Copperfield to once-in-a-lifetime concerts, there’s something for everyone. Notable concerts featured at various MGM Resorts in 2022 include Andrea Bocelli at MGM Grand, An Intimate Evening with Santana at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, and An Evening with Silk Sonic at Dolby Live.

8. Take to the skies on a private hot air balloon

Las Vegas is known for its extravagance, and all couples deserve a little spark every now and then. A private hot air balloon ride is the ultimate dream date. What could be more romantic than a sunrise balloon ride over the majestic Mojave Desert? Some tours include breakfast or a champagne toast upon landing to complete the epic experience and prepare you for an inspired day ahead.

9. Indulge with a food tour

To really get a slice of Vegas, take a food tour around the city and indulge in the array of tastes that Vegas has to offer. You and your muffin can go on a guided tour around Las Vegas, stopping at all the best food locations. Not only will you get to skip the queues, but your guide will also be highly knowledgeable and passionate about the cuisine on offer and will make the best recommendations. From the best local pizza stand to the highest trending celebrity chef spots, scout for your next date location and get a true taste of Vegas!

10. View the city from the High Roller observation wheel

Take your relationship to new heights with an ultra-modern wheel ride that reaches 550 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. The wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution. You can even opt for a happy-half-hour cocktail experience that includes an open bar and bartender, or the High Roller Wheel Chocolate Tasting Experience to sample chocolates and enjoy a glass of wine along with the views. This is the largest observation wheel in North America and offers the perfect mix of fun and romance for you and your sweetheart to swoon over.
