Valentine’s Day is just a week away. Time to start thinking of how you’re going to wow that special somebody…and also time to check in on the real Cupid. With Las Vegas being the nearest big city to our headquarters, we thought it would be helpful to put together a list of ideas for couples visiting Las Vegas this Valentine’s Day.
Las Vegas is the perfect place to spend a romantic Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of live shows to wow your date, such as a concert or an acrobatic performance. There are also restaurants with every cuisine, including a classic steak dinner or creative sushi dishes. Don’t forget about the many wedding chapels in the city to tie the knot in style.
Before planning things to do with your significant other, make sure you have clothing to make the night memorable. For those that are tall and slim, ditch the tees that don’t fit properly. Be comfortable and stylish by shopping our men’s collections.
Once you have appropriate clothing, choose an unforgettable experience for you and your right-hand.
Dazzle Your Date with the Bellagio Fountains
The Bellagio Fountains are a must-do show for Valentine’s Day. The show takes place in front of the luxury hotel and casino, and the water feature is coordinated with Broadway, classical and pop music. Each show is different, and the fountains can shoot water up to 400 feet in the air. After the show, take a peek inside the hotel for hand-blown glass flowers by artist Dale Chihuly that dot the ceiling.
