15 ROMANTIC THINGS TO DO FOR COUPLES IN LAS VEGAS
- Bellagio Fountains
- Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower
- Venetian Gondola Rides
- High Roller
- Lake Las Vegas Gondola Rides
2. Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower
Paris is known as the city of love, but if you can’t make it to France this year, go up the Eiffel Tower right here in Vegas. Although it’s half the size of the real tower, you still get amazing views of the strip from the top. (General Cost: $11.50 for adults; $16.50 from 7:15 p.m. – close)
3. Venetian Gondola Rides
4. High Roller
This observation wheel gives you views of the strip within an enclosed room. You can even rent out an entire room to yourself (Cost: Starting at $25 per adult).
Just 17 miles from the strip, this hidden gem takes you onto a lake with tons of options for your ride. It’s the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas without the fuss of the crowds. You can have drinks, an entire meal, and they even have a special message in a bottle service. Don’t forget to kiss when passing under the Pontes Vecchio bridge. (Cost: Starting at $135 for two guests).
FINE DINING ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP
Is the way to someone’s heart through their stomach? I sure think so.
Joel Robuchon was named chef of the century, and this is a highly decorated restaurant (past Michelin’s Three Star, Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond awards, and Wine Spectator’s Grand Award). We finally went for our anniversary, and it did not disappoint. Also check out L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, which has a more casual atmosphere.
Not going to lie, it’s going to be tough to get reservations here on Valentines Day in Las Vegas.
For the food lover, this is a must-try restaurant. It’s not low key like the others, but it was one of the best meals we’ve had in Las Vegas so far. The food is tapas style ordering, and you get a chance to try a variety of dishes. I’m not a huge fan of tofu, but the agedashi tofu was a stand out for me.

ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES IN LAS VEGAS FOR COUPLES
Studies show that a good adrenaline rush increases attraction and arousal. Here are some things to get the adrenaline pumping.
- Rock Climbing at Red Rock or if you prefer starting indoors, come by Origin. I actually set routes there once a week!
- Zipline at Bootleg Canyon. There are also shorter ones closer to the strip, but they’re touristy which sometimes takes away from the date experience.
- Drive an Exotic Car at Exotics Racing or if driving isn’t your thing, you can ride with a stunt car driver, which I found to be even more of an adrenaline rush.
