Las Vegas may be known for its wild shows, theme parks, and all-night casinos, but there are plenty of things to do for couples looking to enjoy a romantic holiday. The 5-star hotels along the iconic Las Vegas Boulevard are often inspired by romantic European cities, such as Paris and Venice, and you can find recreations of landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower.

    If you and your significant other share a love for the outdoors, plan a romantic road trip to the Grand Canyon or Lake Mead. There, you get to enjoy hours of hiking, camping, or simply enjoying breathtaking views of Nevada’s landscape. Whether you’re planning on a first date or celebrating your anniversary, check out our guide to Las Vegas’s most romantic places.

    Be pampered from head to toe

    Take some time away from the slot machines and enjoy a relaxing massage with your loved one.
