With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there’s no doubt that lovers in Sin City are looking for date night ideas. Of course this year poses more concerns and regulations than in years past, but this isn’t an excuse in my book to not go out and enjoy one another. Las Vegas is notorious for outrageous events and unique experiences like the magical fountain display at the Bellagio (yes they are breath-taking) or enjoying a Gondola ride with a singing gondolier at the Venetian (another classic). Let’s be honest, everyone knows this to be Vegas and that’s of course part of what made Las Vegas famous. However, my goal is to fill you in on some unique options that are available for Valentine’s Day this year, rather than the run-of-the-mill and ever so obvious options.
I’ve put together a list of unique Valentine’s Day date ideas here in Las Vegas that are for the adventurous, fun-seeking couples. Keep in mind that in order to ensure your date night, reservations should be made ASAP as restrictions in Las Vegas are still at a maximum of 25%.
