For many people, Las Vegas is the ultimate destination for a bachelor or bachelorette party, one last weekend to sow wild oats with friends before tying the knot. There are tons of things for groups of friends to do from taking advantage of the Vegas Odds to seeing shows, going to clubs, golfing, helicopter rides, and more.
Aside from group excursion, the question has to be asked if Las Vegas would be a great destination for couples and a date night? Of course – and many people say a date night in Sin City is even funner than going with a group. At the very least, a one-on-one trip will probably be less expensive and a lot easier on your body then hanging out with a bunch of hooligans.
Here are some ideas for date night in Vegas.
Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas
While Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world, it’s also about a 5,000-mile journey to get to. Why not go with the next best thing in a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. This iconic monument is fully accessible and offers breathtaking views of the Las Vegas lights.
There is a free light show every 30 minutes at the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas so even if you are just strolling through the surrounding area this a must-stop attraction.
Doing Dinner Is a Must
While Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling, the food scene inside of the casinos is somewhat underrated. CUT by Wolfgang Puck in the Palazzo is perhaps the most recognizable fine-dining establishment in Vegas while the Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill in the MGM Grand offers a more casual environment.
The Eiffel Tower restaurant offers some of the best views in the city including the Bellagio fountains across the street. Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar is a Chicago steakhouse replica with a dark and private theme. Americana has a flavor for everybody ranging from Nantucket scallops, Pacific Ocean fish, steaks from the Midwest – and is also located in the Desert Shores neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip.
The spas in Las Vegas are as immaculate as the marble casino lobby floors, and they employ modern technologies as well. For example, dry sweating rooms called laconiums, steam baths (hammams), water circuits, and ice baths are some of the ‘date day’ amenities that can help recover from the night before or get you relaxed for the intimate events of the upcoming evening.
It’s important to note that a trip to Las Vegas doesn’t have to involve just gambling, eating, and going to shows. There are many fun and active date activities in the city and the surrounding area. A trip to Lake Mead and renting jet skis is a fun way to cool off from the heat while a hike through Gold Coast Canyon is a nice way to get away from the Strip for a day. Axe throwing and bungee jumping/controlled free falling are other interesting things to do that aren’t found in many cities across the U.S.
