See the Lights Of Love at Ethel M Chocolates

Ethel M Chocolates Lights Of Love Valentines Day

Ethel M is a local chocolatier that has a really large and cute cactus garden that you can explore onsite. For Valentine’s Day, they usually set up a special event called Lights of Love where the cactus garden is decorated with string lights to celebrate the holiday.

Lights of Love is back for 2024! The 3-acre garden will be decorated with one million romantic Valentine-themed lights. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a stroll and snap some photos with your love or the gal pals. Be sure to snag one of their signature hot chocolates from the Cactus Café before taking your stroll.

You can see Lights of Love from February 2nd – February 18th, 2024 from 5pm – 10pm nightly. $2 entrance fee per person is required with all proceeds donated to local charities.

Ethel M Chocolates Lights Of Love

No reservations are required, but in order to make your experience in the garden as enjoyable as possible, they will be limiting the number of people within the garden at one time. This means you may have to wait in line for a short period of time before entering.

They’re also offering a Valentine’s Tasting for Two that you can book on their site. You can also enjoy special flavors of the season, as well as your oh-so-fitting Valentine’s Day heart-shaped box filled with all the premium chocolates.

Valentine’s Day Jazz Dinner at Vic’s Las Vegas

Vic’s Las Vegas is throwing a Smooth Jazz Valentine’s Day Dinner with the LVA Quartet.

On February 14, 2024, enjoy their special Signature Cioppino, a savory blend of shrimp, lobster tail, scallops, black mussels, and neck clams, all mixed up in a fragrant stew of tomatoes and herbs, or enjoy another offering from their Italian American-inspired menu.

Diners will be treated to live jazz by the Las Vegas Academy Quartet, as well as bottomless bubbly throughout the evening. RSVP on their site.

The Mob Museum: St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Exhibit

On February 14, 2024, The Mob Museum celebrates its 12th anniversary with a special event offering FREE admission for Nevada residents and a buy-one-get-one deal for non-residents.

If you’re looking for a super unique way to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, why not transport yourself all the way back to February 14, 1929 at The Mob Museum?

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to witness an exclusive showcase of the two Thompson submachine guns used in the infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on February 14, 1929. These historic firearms, central to a pivotal moment in mob history, will be on display, allowing guests to step back in time.

Members of the Berrien County, Michigan, Sheriff’s Department, where the firearms currently reside, will be present to share insights, discuss the historical significance of the weapons, and engage with guests. The event also features other artifacts related to the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, providing a unique glimpse into this significant chapter of mob history.

Vegas Valentine’s Rooftop Party at Mandalay Bay

The Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay Resort is hosting a Valentine’s Day party on February 14, 2024.

Lounge hours are from 6 to 9pm, you can enjoy bites and cocktails at their romantic rooftop lounge featuring amazing views of the Strip. Last call for food is at 9pm. The DJ begins his set at 9:30 pm and will be spinning top 40/pop/hip hop music.

Reserve your spot on Eventbrite.

Las Vegas’s Cupid’s Crawl Pub Crawl

Flutter into the season of love at the Cupid’s Crawl Pub Crawl, a celebration of Valentine’s Day, brought to you by dothecrawl.com!

On February 10th, The Arts District in Sin City is the place to be. Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or a pair of lovebirds come out to socialize with others, this pub crawl is welcoming you.

To fully enjoy Cupid’s Crawl Pub Crawl, you’re invited to dress in your most lovely, heart-inspired gear! Along with five bar stops, there will be social media challenges, a best-dressed content, and digital photo frames for you to commemorate the night.

Tickets are not available at the door so you’ll want to purchase your tickets in advance.

Frank Sinatra Tribute Show

Celebrate Valentine’s Day nostalgically and romantically by attending Frankly Frank, a tribute show to the legendary Frank Sinatra. The intimate performance, featuring tribute artist Gary Anthony, transports you back to the Sinatra era in Las Vegas, where glamour and entertainment was all the rage.

Held at the Pegasus Showroom in the Alexis Park All Suite Resort on February 14, 2024, at 7 pm, this show promises an evening of elegance, raw talent, and the timeless melodies of the Rat Pack crooner.

Secure your tickets for a special Valentine’s Day celebration filled with the magic of Sinatra’s music.

Can’t attend on the 14th? They have other show dates available as well.

Have a fancy dinner date

For a classic romantic Valentine’s Day evening in Vegas, I recommend splurging on a dinner at one of the city’s exquisite restaurants. If you didn’t already know, Vegas is a mecca for top-notch restaurants.

Here are some of the most romantic options on the Las Vegas Strip:

Nobu at Caesars Palace – Feast on imported Japanese fish, seafood and exotic delicacies. There’s also vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Bavette’s Steakhouse in Park MGM – The steaks are the main attraction at this steakhouse, but the restaurant has a bit of French flair too. It’s a romantic place to dine due to the dimmed lights, creating a calm (and seductive) mood that’s welcome on any date.

Mizumi at The Wynn – At Mizumi, you and your date will be transported to Japan instantly. You’ll get to sit alongside a koi pond and a 90-foot waterfall while feasting on Japanese-inspired fine dining.

Hugo’s Cellar at the Four Queens – Because every woman gets a rose when they dine at Hugo’s Cellar, you already know this is a spot in Las Vegas meant for couples! This old-school restaurant (from 1966) features traditional table-side salads from a cart and is well known for their steaks and seafood tower. Don’t miss the Bananas Foster dessert!

Primarily Prime Rib at South Point: Indulge in mouthwatering prime rib in a cozy atmosphere.

Top Of The World at the Strat: Enjoy not only a delicious meal but also panoramic vistas of the city lights.

PRO TIP: Make sure to secure a reservation WELL in advance, especially if you choose a fancier restaurant. Typically, the fancier it is, the harder it is to get reservations — especially for Valentine’s Day!

Marriage Can Be Murder Dinner Show

For couples who love interactive dinners and immersive experiences, we’ve got JUST the thing for you this Valentine’s Day!

Marriage Can Be Murder is an award-winning interactive comedy and murder mystery dinner experience where the audience members become part of the show. If you liked the movie Glass Onion or the game of Clue, then this is a dinner show that you won’t want to pass up.

Anyone can be a suspect as actors could easily be posting as one of the seemingly innocent guests among you. You might be seated next to the murderer, YOU may even be suspected of murder, but only time will tell as the night unravels and more clues are revealed.

Get ready to be part of the story as you chow down on your salad, warm rolls, a chicken or beef entree, and ice cream dessert.

Make a pit stop at the LOVE sign

LOVE Installation The Venetian Las Vegas

The iconic LOVE sign at The Venetian Resort is a symbol of the romantic ambiance that permeates through the entire hotel. Inspired by love from its inception, The Venetian Resort has actually been voted the most romantic hotel in Las Vegas by USA Today!

The LOVE sign, situated within the resort, serves as the perfect pit stop for a quick Valentine’s Day selfie with your partner.

Take a gondola ride at The Venetian

While you’re at The Venetian, head to The Grand Canal Shoppes and surprise your partner with a gondola ride, where you’ll be serenaded by your gondolier during the entire ride along the Grand Canal.

If a gondola ride is not the most romantic thing to do, then I don’t know what is! At The Venetian Resort, you can go on gondola rides in true Venetian style without needing to fork up money to buy a plane ticket to Italy.

Watch a show (or two)

Awakening

Las Vegas has a world-class theater scene. From burlesque to magic, Cirque de Soleil to comedy, there is a show for every type of person and every sort of budget. And the best part is, there’s a show happening every single night in Vegas.

A few shows that we think are perfect for a Valentine’s Day date include:

Awakening – The Wynn’s brand-new spectacular production featuring fantastical creatures, dazzling visuals, compelling narrative, and a touch of lighthearted comedy.

The Beatles LOVE: A captivating Cirque du Soleil production that celebrates love as well as the music of The Beatles.

“O” at Bellagio: Another mesmerizing Cirque du Soleil show, “O” combines water, acrobatics, and theatrical performances to create a unique and romantic experience.

Pretend like you’re in Paris

For a wanderlust-themed Valentine’s Day idea, pretend like you’ve been transported to the romantic city of Paris… without leaving the Las Vegas Strip.

At Paris Las Vegas, you can experience a recreated version of the French capital that includes iconic landmarks like the Louvre, the L’Arc de Triomphe, and, of course, the Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower Experience offers a unique opportunity to ride up to the Observation Deck of their Eiffel Tower replica, providing gorgeous views of the city from 460 feet in the air. Guides at the top will help you identify major landmarks below.

Pair this experience with a romantic dinner at a French restaurant like the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, Marché Bacchus or Bouchon Bistro, and you’ll feel like you’ve spent a weekend in Paris without all the expense.

The Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, consistently named one of the most romantic restaurants in the country by many news outlets, is offering a Valentine’s Day special! On February 14th, the restaurant is offering a prix fixe menu with a litany of courses including Alaskan Crab Salad, Baby Sea Scallops, Warm Foie Gras with Braised Fennel, Prime Filet Mignon with Bone Marrow Bread Pudding, and more. Cost: $175.00 per person, plus tax.

Rum tasting and a show at Lost Spirits Distillery

Looking to do something really different in Las Vegas for your Valentine’s Day date night? Then heading to AREA15 is a must.

While there are too many things to do at AREA15 to list here, we recommend heading to Lost Spirits Distillery to taste 19th-century-style English rum and watch their enthralling modern cirque-themed show (complete with 44 acrobats and performers). The rum is actually quite good!

Soak in sky-high views of the Las Vegas Strip

The LINQ Hotel and Experience Las Vegas

Make your V-Day extra memorable by soaking in the sky-high views of the Las Vegas Strip with your sweetheart. Head to one of the city’s many fantastic observation centers for a unique perspective above the bustling cityscape.

The High Roller Observation Wheel, one of the world’s tallest, provides breathtaking 360-degree views of the city. Take advantage of this elevated experience, and while in the area, explore the vibrant LINQ shopping, dining, and entertainment complex located at the base of the High Roller.

Another great option is to head to the observation tower at The STRAT. You can even ride some really crazy, adrenaline-pumping rides there too!

Have drinks at Skyfall Panoramic Bar & Lounge

While we’re on the topic of panoramic views, if a night of drinking is what you’re after, you can elevate your night at Skyfall Panoramic Bar & Lounge, located on the 64th floor of Delano Las Vegas.

Indulge in artisan cocktails and shareable appetizers while taking in the breathtaking panoramic views. On Fridays and Saturdays from 9 PM to 1 AM, a resident DJ provides a laid-back soundtrack to complement the atmosphere.

LIFTOFF at AREA15

If panoramic views from behind a glass window are simply not enough for you and your honey, we want to invite you to try LIFTOFF at AREA15.

LIFTOFF is a panoramic ride and aerial adventure inspired by aeronauts. Toast to the night with specialty libations at the LIFTOFF Lounge before ascending 130 feet high in an open-air balloon ride, offering a 360-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip and beyond. This ride breaks the barriers between land and sky for a one-of-a-kind experience.

You can even drink on the ride! Don’t worry, your drinks won’t fly all over the place — this is a slow-moving observation tower-type ride. The whole journey takes about seven minutes.

Take a hot air balloon ride over the Pahrump Valley

Looking for an even more over-the-top way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Book a sunrise hot air balloon ride and be the envy of all the other couples you know!

On this ride, you’ll fly over the Pahrump Valley and soar as high as 10,000 feet, enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the open desert and mountain scenery that not many get to experience. You’ll need to start your adventure at 3:30 AM in order to witness the epic sunrise views though!

If you want to take it down a notch (or just can’t fathom waking up that early), there’s always the Las Vegas nighttime helicopter flight.

Get a couples massage

You cannot come to Las Vegas for romance without hitting the spa at least once. And with so many high-end hotels here, you are spoiled with choice when it comes to world-class spa treatments.

The top three in our book are:

Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace: Qua Baths & Spa offers an opulent spa with Roman-inspired treatments including an Arctic Ice room. They also offer romantic packages, including the “Couples’ Escape” for a shared spa experience.

Sahra Spa & Hammam at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas: A luxurious and modern hammam (Turkish bath) experience. Look for special romantic packages designed for couples seeking an intimate spa retreat.

Canyon Ranch Spa at The Venetian: This award-winning spa lets couples book side-by-side massages or enjoy the Aquavana thermal suite together.

Go to the Neon Museum

Neon Boneyard Las Vegas
The Stardust sign at the Neon Boneyard

If you ever wondered where all the old Vegas signs have disappeared off to over the years, check out the Neon Museum, where you’ll find more than 200 of them gathered.

The Neon Boneyard is the main outdoor exhibition area where you can find a collection of over 200 vintage neon signs including those from old casinos, motels, and businesses.

It’s such a cute date spot as it provides a great backdrop for conversation. You can get lots of cute photos here with retro lit-up signage in the background. Who knows, maybe some will make it into a wedding or anniversary slideshow down the road!

Pro Tip

If you don’t want to pay for the Neon Museum or you just can’t get enough of the neon signage, check out 15 other restored signs that have been placed on medians along Las Vegas Boulevard, between Sahara Avenue and Washington Avenue as part of the Scenic Byways beautification plan. They’re especially cute in the evening!

Have afternoon tea

After you’ve had a bit of fun exploring Las Vegas, you can plan for a late afternoon pick-me-up with some traditional English tea at the Tea Lounge at Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. Enjoy high-quality tea infusions alongside tasty scones and finger sandwiches, all while taking in sweeping views of the Strip from the 23rd floor.

See a comedy show

For couples who love to share laughs together, three of the best comedy club venues in Vegas are The Comedy Cellar at Rio, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand, and LA Comedy Club at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod.

These comedy clubs have featured some of the biggest names in comedy, and it wouldn’t be out of the question for a famous comic to show up at a Valentine’s Day show!

Catch a steamy burlesque or revue show

Absinthe Caesars Palace

Catching one of the many steamy revue shows offered in Las Vegas could be a fun thing to do on Valentines Day (or Galentine’s Day) if you want to turn the sexy up for the night!

Absinthe at Caesars Palace is a daring and edgy show that combines burlesque, acrobatics, and comedy in an intimate tent setting outside Caesars Palace.

X Burlesque at Flamingo Las Vegas is another high-energy burlesque revue showcasing sensual choreography, dazzling costumes, and a variety of dance styles.

And for the ladies celebrating Galentine’s Day… two shows will add laughs and va-va-voom to your night:

Magic Mike Live at Sahara Las Vegas: Inspired by the “Magic Mike” films, this show is tailored for a female audience, featuring a talented cast of male dancers who fill the room up with fun and excitement.

Thunder From Down Under at Excalibur: Features Australian performers delivering a mix of dance routines, humor, and audience interaction.

Try Dining in the Dark

Test your five senses, and fill your belly, at BLACKOUT Dining In The Dark!

BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark turns the traditional fine dining experience into an anything-but-traditional all-out sensory experience. You’ll basically be eating in pitch-black darkness!

Phones, flashlights or light of any sort aren’t allowed. But that’s what allows your other senses to take the lead and really explore and indulge in your seven-course prix-fixe meal.


What You Should Do Next

If you’ve found something on this list that’s perfect for your Valentine’s Day itinerary, you will want to lock it in ASAP.

Las Vegas is a super popular travel destination during Valentine’s Day because it sometimes falls near other events like Super Bowl Sunday and Lunar New Year.

If the activity you’ve chosen requires a reservation or tickets, get them as soon as possible! Restaurant reservations get booked up weeks if not months in advance!

For example: Four weeks before V-Day, I tried to make a reservation at a prime rib restaurant in Vegas for Valentine’s Day (Feb 14th). Guess what — no availability. So I ended up making a reservation for Feb 13th instead. Not the end of the world, but also not ideal.

Heed my warning, book ’em early!
