Loving Las Vegas
Romantic Spots in Las VegasThe images of neon lights, strippers and gambling into the wee hours of the morning generally do not conjure feelings of romance. Las Vegas certainly has these things, but it is also one of the most romantic cities in the country. These dazzling Vegas locations will let you see the romantic side of Sin City.
There is no place in Vegas that is more romantic than the Eiffel Tower replica located at the Paris Hotel. Many a question has been popped on the observation deck that overlooks the entire city. The restaurant located on the tower’s 11th floor serves French cuisine prepared by award winning Chef Jean Joho and has an amazing view of the dramatic Bellagio fountains.
The exotic furnishings and private rooms are not what makes this restaurant and lounge a romantic haven. The balcony rises high over the vibrant lights of the city and provides a spectacular view. Couples can dine on the restaurant’s patio and enjoy an uninterrupted view of the excitement below.
Lake Las Vegas
The sparkling waters of Lake Las Vegas capture old world Italian charm. The gondola rides offer a taste of Venice in the desert. The staff lay out a sumptuous four-course dinner for two on the long gondolas that are exactly like the ones used to navigate Venetian canals. Champagne and roses come together with the starlit night to create a backdrop for romance.
If your ideas of romance involve nature, a hike around Mount Charleston will provide plenty of unforgettable virgin landscapes. Just outside of Las Vegas, Mount Charleston is immune to the lights and glitter of the city. Magnificent waterfalls, fields of wildflowers and bands of roaming wild horses are the sights you can expect to see on a hike for two.
This rooftop nightclub on the top floor of The Palms is the ultimate in romance. If you are looking to dance under the stars all night, Moon offers a stylish solution. The roof opens up to reveal the night sky and provides an enchanting celestial view with the luxury of bartenders.
The Grand Canyon is certainly not in Las Vegas, but the opportunity to see the 70 million year old fissure from the air is a chance that must not be missed. Helicopter rides leave the city to view the incredible sights of this 6,000-foot deep canyon that has been carved out by the Colorado River. Taking the helicopter allows you to see the canyon in comfort and also offers views to areas that are inaccessible by foot. There is nothing like this thrilling experience to bring you closer together.
