Valentine’s Day in Vegas: Not Just Roses and Chocolate

Things to Do — By thmeeks on December 24, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Las Vegas loves Valentine’s Day because it’s a holiday that celebrates one of the city’s favorite things: romance. But Vegas isn’t a city for moonlit walks and poems. Valentine’s Day in Vegas is all about saying, “You’re the one for me” in a big way.

Thinking of spending February 14 in Vegas? You just might get carried away and decide to:

Get Married

Vegas has a lot of wedding chapels, and it’s easy to get a marriage license.  Whether you prefer something more elegant (think: Bellagio Wedding Chapel) or kitschy (pull up to a chapel with a drive-thru window), Vegas has a chapel for you. If you’re thinking of getting hitched, keep in mind that Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days for Vegas wedding chapels and the marriage license bureau.

Go Shopping

What says, “I love you” more than a shopping spree? If the object of your desire enjoys retail expressions of affection, Vegas has plenty of options for you. The Strip has a profusion of upscale shopping destinations. For a first-class splurge, try CityCenter’s luxury shopping mall, Crystals, where you’ll find provocative lingerie at Kiki de Montparnasse and jewelry from Harry Winstonor Tiffany.

Get Pampered at a Spa

A massage, a facial, a steam room… whatever your choice of spa treatment, you’ll find something in a Las Vegas spa that will relax you. Many spas offer couples treatments, so you can enjoy those “ahhh” moments in the company of your sweetie.

See a Sexy Show

Plenty of shows on the Strip will increase the sexiness quotient of your evening. Even Cirque du Soleil has an adults-only show, Zumanity. You may also want to get tickets for Crazy Horse Paris, Peepshow, or Crazy Girls. Remember, you’re in Vegas, so “romantic” really means “sexy.”
