1. Take an awesome helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon

Choose the most picturesque setting for a romantic trip for two to the Grand Canyon, which is just a helicopter ride away (no big deal). Operators cover all different types of routes, boasting views of the likes of the impressive Hoover Dam, twisting Colorado River, high-top West Rim and more. Some itineraries include a meal, or even an overnight stay, so you can fully make the most of each other’s company while at one of the most impressive natural landmarks in the USA.

Vibe: Natural wonders of the world

While you’re there: Head out onto the ringed viewing platform for superlative views.

2. Cruise along the Venetian on a gondola ride

There’s serious Venetian vibes to be had at The Venetian Resort! Choose from an indoor or outdoor route and let your gondolier serenade you both as they peddle you along the waterway. As you pass beneath bridges and gaze up at balconies, you and your other half can snuggle up and really feel like you’re really in Venice as you pass by the European-styled buildings. Get ready to feel suitably charmed – Italian style.

Vibe: Italy meets Vegas.

While you’re there: Clink your glasses of champagne and enjoy the ride.

3. Head up to cloud nine… and play Topgolf

Combine twinkling city lights with activities with this perfect combo date night option. Topgolf is golf with a twist; aim your club from the platform and swing your shot into one of the point-based zones to try and beat your partner. Not only will the two of you get to play out your competitive spirit, but also enjoy the views set against a backdrop of the impressive Strip. Once the game is over, the loser can get the drinks in at one of the five bars on site!

Vibe: Activity dates with a romantic hue.

While you’re there: Order a few light bites and shareable snacks to refuel.

4. Fall in love with dinner at SW Steakhouse

You’ll fall in love with everything – the food, the menu, the setting – at SW Steakhouse. It’s undoubtedly one of the most romantic things to do in Vegas for couples, thanks to its slick, classy ambiance and divine menu. With white-clothed tables, peach shades and colonnades, it makes the dress code (‘business casual’; no shorts, sports clothing or open-toed shoes) worth it! Try to opt for a table on the patio, where you can enjoy unrivalled views of the Lake of Dreams.

Vibe: Classy dinners.

While you’re there: Book into a luxury-night stay at Wynn Las Vegas, where the restaurant is located.

5. Enjoy the views in Paris* (*Vegas-style)

What could be more atmospheric than a visit to the Eiffel Tower? Granted, this is Las Vegas’s recreation of the Parisian landmark, but paying a visit to it is one of the most romantic things to do in Vegas for couples. During the day, head up 46 stories to the viewing platform, while at night you can stay down on ground level to catch the half-hourly light show, when the tower twinkles with an awash of blues, whites, reds and more. You can even go the extra mile and get married here!

Vibe: Parisian love affair.

While you’re there: Have your couple’s photo professionally taken to remember your memorable experience!

6. Let love soar on the High Roller

The clue’s in the name with this one. As you rise 550 above the ground, you and your partner can take in the awesome views of the Strip and the mountain backdrop beyond. Time your spin on the wheel so that you can watch the sunset, for an even more intimate feeling. In fact, the reason why the views are just so good is that the High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel! With such a picturesque view and intimate location, it might be the perfect place to drop to one knee and ask a very important question...

Vibe: Cloud nine-feels.

While you’re there: Back down on ground level, head to a nearby comedy club, such as the range of nights on at Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club.

7. Appreciate fine art at Bellagio Gallery

While the glittering lights, romantic attractions and natural wonders all make Las Vegas a suitable destination for couples, it can be enjoyed even more so with a splash of culture. The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art displays a fabulous array of temporary and permanent exhibitions. It makes for an ideal date-day, as you can stroll around each room hand in hand, while you appreciate the likes of world-renowned artists like Warhol and Picasso as well as other celebrated art works. Want to learn a little more? There’s a daily tour at 2pm which you can join; it’s included in your ticket price, so it’s well worth taking in!

Vibe: Culture vultures galore.

While you’re there: Head over to the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens for another romantic stroll.
