Love is patient. Love is kind. And sometimes, love is a shotgun wedding at the Graceland Wedding Chapel. Not that you have to get Elvis involved. Try out one of these 9 Valentine’s Day dates in Las Vegas, and let the romance begin:
1. Break out the bubbles at Reliquary Spa.
At the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Reliquary Spa, relaxation goes way beyond a bottle of bath gel. Opt for the “Couples Package” for a trifecta of dancing, champagne and Swedish massages.
2. Go see what LOVE’s all about.
If John Cusack taught us anything, it’s that the right music — and a well-aimed boombox — can do wonders for your love life. In this case, the right music is The Beatles. And the right stage show is Cirque du Soleil’s LOVE.
3. Book a table for two at Michael Mina.
You might not equate San Francisco with seduction — but its chefs, like Michael Mina, can sure cast a spell. At his Las Vegas restaurant located in the Bellagio, Valentine’s Day dinner is guaranteed to make your sweetheart swoon.
4. Float through Vegas on a gondola.
We could argue all day about which boat’s the most romantic, but you’d be wrong if you said anything but “the gondola.” Each voyage at The Venetian comes complete with a singing gondolier and an inexplicable craving for limoncello.
5. Get that “Top of the World” feeling all over again.
A jump of the heart, a catch of the breath — is it love? Or just the height? Rotating 800 feet above the Las Vegas Strip, Top of World restaurant at the Stratosphere Hotel offers romantic views and a charming Valentine’s Day dinner.
6. Grow young together at BATHHOUSE.
The Side by Side Bubalina Chocolat’ Manicure and Pedicure at this spa isn’t just a mouthful — it’s also packed with great anti-aging benefits. Lie back with your partner and soak it up as you enjoy pampering times two at Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay.
7. Head to Sage and eat your heart out.
ARIA Resort & Casino’s Sage restaurant offers an elegant prix fixe dinner that’s truly a godsend for your sweet tooth. A foie gras crème brulee heats up the second course, while the fifth course treats your taste buds to a warm toffee pudding with honeyed dates.
8. Shop for the perfect memento amorem.
Before you sell off your hair for a watch chain, consider shopping around. Between The Shops at Crystals, The Forum Shops, and the Miracle Mile Shops, you’ll have no trouble locating a token of your affection.
9. Say your vows in Vegas, for the first time, or all over again.
Call it cliché, but there’s something untouchably wonderful about a Las Vegas wedding. So pick up some flowers, slip into your semi-finery, and walk the aisle to Elvis’ altar.
