The Best Things to Do in Las Vegas on Your Honeymoon

If you are planning your honeymoon and have picked Las Vegas as the destination, you’ve made a good choice. Sin City is known mostly for gambling, but there are a ton of other things you can do.

Let’s take a look at all the activities Las Vegas offers.

Visit Some of the Famous Shows

Frank Sinatra used to be one of the biggest icons of Las Vegas, and his spirit lives on. The city hosts countless shows that will take your breath away.

You can watch many famous singers, magicians, or visit Cirque du Soleil. The variety is staggering, and you will certainly find a show that suits you.

You should plan carefully, though. It’s best to see what’s available and book your tickets in advance. Don’t count on a last-minute purchase, as you could be left empty-handed. 

Take a Shot at the Casinos

That’s probably not the most traditional honeymoon experience, but we’re talking about Las Vegas here. You simply can’t ignore one of the many casinos in the city. There’s nothing wrong with gambling if you set up a reasonable limit that you could afford to lose.

Since you’re in Vegas, there’s no need to place your bets at an online casino site when you can play casino games like roulette, poker, blackjack, slots, or even place a bet on your favorite sports team at virtual every spot on the Las Vegas strip. 

On top of the fun that comes from the games, many casinos treat their customers with drinks, little souvenirs, and other small gifts. Not something you’d ever get when playing games at an online casino.

Explore the Museums

Another attraction of Las Vegas that is often overlooked are the many museums in the city. The most famous among them is the Mob Museum that is dedicated to the dark history of the place. Organized crime was behind the foundation of Las Vegas, and you can learn more on the topic there.

Other notable options include the Natural History Museum, the Neon Museum, the Burlesque Hall of Fame, and of course, Madame Tussauds. There are plenty of other interesting museums, though, so make sure to have a solid plan, or you may run out of time.

Visit One of the Famous Vegas Pool Parties

If you and your spouse want to party, Las Vegas can certainly deliver. The famous pool parties run non-stop, and you can find plenty of them at any time of the year.

Most hotels have their own event, so make sure to take that into account when booking a place to sleep. That doesn’t mean you can’t try some of them without being a guest, though. 

Simply check the schedule of the biggest hotels or browse online to find out what’s available at the time you are going to be in Vegas.

Visit the Night Clubs

The pool parties are the best option during the daytime, but once the sun goes down, it’s time to hit the nightclubs. Places like Omnia, Kaos, Hakkasan, Jewel, and others will provide a lot of fun for people who like to hit the dance floor.

If you don’t like big crowds or you will be on a budget, you should probably skip them, though. The prices are quite high, and there are a ton of people.

Just Wander Around the Pedestrian Zones

Since tourism is the top priority of Las Vegas, the city has plenty of pedestrian zones. You should certainly spend some time just wandering around with your spouse.

You will see plenty of free or cheap attractions and the whole experience is extremely colorful. You could easily find all kinds of entertainment, and there’s always the element of surprise.

Visit the Grand Canyon

If you prefer Mother Nature, you should certainly go to the Grand Canyon. It’s one of the most famous American landmarks and for a good reason. 

You can get there in several hours by bus or car, so make sure to plan properly. You will likely need a full day to go to Grand Canyon, but the view is totally worth it.

Most hotels and travel agencies in Las Vegas have regular excursions, so you can easily find a way to reach your destination.

Visit the Red Rock Canyon

If you don’t want to take the time to go to the Grand Canyon or you simply want even more nature during your honeymoon, Red Rock Canyon is an excellent choice. The famous red cliffs of the place are located less than 20 miles from Las Vegas.

The place offers various tours and adventures if you want to add more spice to the whole experience. For example, you can take a Hummer ride around the canyon.

Explore the Fountain Show

Few things capture the spirit of Las Vegas the way the famous fountains of Bellagio do.

There are free shows daily that included a lot of water, lights, and music. The experience is truly mesmerizing and one of the best things to do in Sin City.

Enjoy the Restaurants

Las Vegas is full of cheap places to eat, but you should try at least one or two of the best restaurants in town. You can find all kinds of food, but several places stand out. The likes of Muzumi, Bardot Brasserie, Twist, Guy Savoy, and others can compare with any restaurant in the world.

A dinner for two might be expensive, but it will add a lot to your overall honeymoon experience.

Ride a Gondola

One of the most romantic things that Las Vegas has to offer is a gondola right at the Venetian Grand Canal. You can enjoy the Italian atmosphere, and if you take the honeymoon tour, you will have a private gondola with a singing gondolier.

Ride a Hot Air Balloon

If you are a couple that prefers more extreme adventures, you could try the hot air balloon. The whole tour includes champagne, magical views of the city, and if you happen to catch the sunsets, you will be left speechless.

When you honeymoon in Las Vegas, don’t forget your camera so you make memories of your trip to Las Vegas on all the sites you will be going to.  There is much to see and do in the area.
