Situated within Nevada’s Mojave Desert, Las Vegas scarcely needs any introduction. As resort cities go it is world-famous for fine dining, bustling nightlife and shopping facilities, not to mention the mega casino-hotels that have granted Vegas the title ‘entertainment capital of the world.’ Naturally, such a vibrant metropolis is highly recommended as a date location. Whether you’ve been an item for a while or just connected on a flirt site, you can invite your partner to join you in chancing your luck at the roulette wheels or savoring a mouth-watering range of restaurant menus. Here are five of the best date ideas.
Satisfy your sweet tooth
There can’t be many romantic couples who can’t resist chocolate, and a tour of the Ethel M Chocolate Factory makes a memorable date suggestion. You can savor a selection of Mars chocolates, as well as embark on excursions around a picturesque garden where there are over 300 species of cacti. Look at these marvellous plants but don’t touch as they can be prickly customers! Whether your date is a special occasion or not, there are so many mouth-watering treats awaiting, from delicious truffles to copper kettle caramels, nut clusters to the signature crème liqueurs.
Oasis of calm
Much as Vegas visitors find the dazzling lights and gaudy nightlife irresistible, sometimes it’s cool to seek out somewhere more relaxing. The Sahra Spa makes for the perfect location where you and your partner can unwind. Step inside natural walls that appear to have been carved from the surrounding Mojave, lined with silver threads. The illuminated ceilings are supposed to represent nights out in the open desert where the only lights comes from the moon and stars. Now you can sink into the Space Between, a lounge with a backdrop of running water. With caves and steam rooms, this is a spa experience neither of you will forget.
Bowl over you partner
What better way for you and your date to work up a sweat than a couple of hours in Red Rock Lanes, a state-of-the-art bowling alley? Like everything else in Las Vegas the emphasis is on ‘bigger and brasher than anywhere else.’ There are over 70 lanes waiting for enthusiastic bowlers to start attacking those skittles, as sell as a lounge, a game room, and a fully-stocked deli bar serving all manner of snacks to keep up your energy levels while you’re throwing those weighty bowling balls. The alley is open until 2am, so you really can make a date night of it.
Glasshouse and gardens
One of the most romantic venues Vegas offers courting couples, an afternoon stroll through the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is another fabulous dating idea. This 14,000 square-foot garden is transformed each season by horticultural designers, so the colors change depending on the time of year. A special display marks the Chinese New Year. There’ll be something new for you and your companion to take in every time you visit.
Dining in style
Finally, after a day of hectic activities, why not invite your date out for a romantic meal at Mizumi? Book a meal at the floating pagoda table where you can relish the Far Eastern fare on offer; everything from sashimi to sushi. Enjoy the fantastic cuisine surrounded by koi and waterfalls.
