When is the Best Time to Visit Las Vegas?
Let’s face it, there is always something going on in Las Vegas. That makes any time a great time to visit Las Vegas.
If I had to be honest with you though, I would say that the best time to visit Las Vegas is during the spring and fall seasons. During this time, you will find cooler temperatures and fewer tourists.
And you know that fewer tourists mean lower prices. In my opinion that is a win-win.
The spring months (March-May) are a great time to visit Las Vegas. This time brings an average daily temperature in the 70s and 80s, making for a comfortable day to explore the city, take one of these hikes from Las Vegas, or maybe consider doing one of these fabulous day trips from Las Vegas.
Take note that the evening temperatures can be a little cooler, so you might want to bring a light jacket or sweater with you.
The spring months also boast some great events such as Viva Las Vegas in April and the Billboard Music Awards in May.
Of course, these large events mean more people coming to the city, so be sure to check out the convention schedule on the Las Vegas tourist board website if you want to work around these and get the best deals on hotels.
Visiting Las Vegas during the fall months (September-November) allows you to enjoy the “shoulder season” as well. This time of year sees temperatures a little warmer, ranging in the 80s and 90s.
The fall season also brings fewer tourists so you can still get a great deal. Events during this time include the iHeart Radio Music Festival and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon.
Where to Stay in Las Vegas for Couples
Deciding where to stay in Las Vegas can be difficult. There are so many hotels in Vegas for couples that you can get overwhelmed quickly!
Take an inventory of what is important to you and then find a hotel that checks the most boxes on your list. For instance, do you want a certain location, certain amenities, or a particular price range?
One of our favorite hotels in Las Vegas is the Bellagio. Located right on the Vegas strip, the Bellagio has fabulous rooms, world-class dining and shopping, and incredible service.
Of course, being front and center for one of the cheap things to do in Las Vegas, watch the Bellagio fountains, doesn’t hurt either. I mean, imagine having a room where you can look at your windows and see the fountain of Bellagio dancing in the moonlight.
They have great rooms with awesome amenities. You can also do some romantic activities here such as going on a gondola ride or eating a romantic dinner by the canals.
Of course, there are also lots of great Airbnbs in Las Vegas also! Never tried Airbnb? Well then, we have a treat for you! Click here and use our link to save up to $55 off of your first booking!
Things to do in Vegas for Couples
1. Romantic Helicopter Tour Over the Las Vegas Strip
You know that the Las Vegas lights look great from the ground, so imagine how fabulous they must look from above.
You and your honey will love being greeted with a glass of champagne before being swept away in a helicopter to tour the Las Vegas strip and downtown Las Vegas from above!
Of course, you want to do your helicopter tour at night to ensure that you get the best view of the lights!
As one of the most romantic couple’s activities Las Vegas has to offer, take a helicopter tour over the Las Vegas strip to delight your loved one.
This is one of the many reasons that the city made it on our couples bucket list. This is the perfect experience in Vegas as a couple.
2. Amazing Helicopter Tour Over the Grand Canyon
Instead of viewing the lights of the Las Vegas strip, you might opt for a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon instead. This tour is one of the best things for couples to do in Vegas.
Your helicopter flight will allow you to travel in complete luxury with a limousine pick up before being whisked off to McCarran airport where you will depart, taking a scenic flight to the Grand Canyon West Rim getting a birds-eye view of Vegas, Lake Mead, and the Hoover Dam!
You can also take a day trip with your sweetie to Hoover Dam if you wish. Hoover Dam is near Las Vegas, so it is an easy day trip.
While the Hoover Dam might not sound romantic, it is when you combine it with a picnic and some champagne!
Once arriving at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon on your helicopter flight, you get to land below the rim and enjoy a champagne toast and light snacks.
If that isn’t a romantic thing to do in Las Vegas, I don’t know what is!
3. Take an Epic Hot Air Balloon Ride Over Las Vegas
I don’t know if anything is more romantic than a hot air balloon ride!
Soar with your sweetie in the Las Vegas air with this 3-hour hot air balloon tour which takes you over Red Rock Canyon, and the surrounding neighborhoods, while also giving you fabulous views of the Las Vegas strip.
A ride in a hot air balloon consistently tops the list of romantic things to do no matter where you are. Imagine you and your honey soaring high in the air, sipping champagne, and taking in the Vegas scenery.

I mean, with the glistening Las Vegas strip in the background, who would say no?
If you’re not in the market for a proposal, then go just to see the stunning views of the Las Vegas strip and snap some great pictures.
Adrenaline seekers can also enjoy the many rides that are poised at the top of the Stratosphere like the Big Shot, X Scream, and the Insanity. If these sound like a little too much for you, then enjoy the views of Vegas before grabbing a cocktail in the Air Bar.
10. Take a Romantic Gondola Ride
Granted you aren’t in Venice, but it can feel like you have been transported there thanks to the gondola rides through the canals of the beautiful Venetian Hotel. It might just be one of the most romantic places in Las Vegas.
The gondola rides have you floating under the bridges and beside the vibrant streets of the Grand Canal is sure to please your loved one.
Enjoy the live serenade and take in sights of the meticulously recreated Venetian streets during your gondola ride, or enjoy one of the outdoor gondola rides in the open-air canals located right on the Las Vegas strip.
The gondolas at the Venetial reminded me so much of our time in Venice. Really, all of the Venetian did. The hotel did a great job of recreating the things to do in Venice. You can just hang out here and pretend you are in Venice all day with your sweetie!
This is definitely one of the unique Las Vegas attractions.
11. Eperience Vegas Nightlife at a Bar Crawl
Get off of the strip and head down to Freemont Street for a night of fun. Participating in this bar crawl allows you to skip the lines and head straight inside to enjoy the party. You also get discounted drink specials to help you save money while on your night out.

I love how each of the Las Vegas hotels has its own unique theme and set of attractions to draw visitors. You and your honey will have lots of fun visiting the fabulous hotels of Las Vegas.
Take time to tour the different hotels to see what they have to offer. You will find hidden jewels in each one.

You can also have dinner at the top of the Eiffel Tower if you choose! (This Eiffel Tower really did remind me of Paris!)
All of the Vegas hotels have their own attraction. You could make a whole trip out of just visiting the hotels in Vegas and viewing their free attractions.
When you’re tired, hit the pool and makeshift beach at your hotel!
14. Visit the Neon Museum
The Neon Museum features historic signs from old casinos and other businesses around Las Vegas. While this sounds a little weird, it is actually a really cool experience.
A visit to the Museum makes you feel like you stepped back into the Vegas of the past. The best time to visit is at night when the signs come alive with their lights!
Believe it or not, the Neon Museum can be a romantic thing to do in Las Vegas. The guided tour takes about an hour so it leaves you plenty of time to do something else afterward.

Las Vegas Tips and Tricks For Your Visit
There are so many great couple things to do in Las Vegas. When planning your Las Vegas for couples list, consider some of these tips and tricks as well:
Be Mindful of Distances
The Las Vegas strip is so deceiving. You look down the street and you can easily see the sign for the place you are wanting to visit.
Don’t be deceived though, distances on this street are way farther than they appear. Not only that but to help keep people safe and traffic moving, Las Vegas has installed pedestrian bridges as the majority of intersections so that you go up and over the street. This adds extra time and steps to your travel.
Carry Sunscreen and Water With You
Ensure that you have sunscreen with you and that you reapply it throughout the day. The sun in Vegas is intense and you can quickly have too much exposure.
In addition to that, it is so important to stay hydrated while visiting. You will be doing a lot of walking so be sure and carry plenty of water with you.
Book Mid-Week to Save Money
Planning your stay here mid-week can help to save you tons of money. Shoot for a stay starting on Sunday instead of Friday!
Be Aware of Holiday Weekends and Special Events
Unless you are coming to specifically celebrate a holiday or to participate in a special event, try to avoid these times. Not only is Vegas more crowded, but you will also notice that prices increase dramatically.
Get a Rewards Card
Just about every group in Las Vegas offers a rewards card. All it takes to sign up is a valid ID.
This card gives you points and benefits for the money you spend while visiting their property. One of the best ones to sign up for is the MGM Mlife Rewards as this card can be used at 12 different properties throughout the city.
Don’t Over Book Your Time
Of course, we want you to put your must-do items on your things to do in Vegas as a couple list, but we don’t want you to book out every minute of your time here.
Half of the fun of visiting Las Vegas is to be open to new adventures. Just roll with whatever happens and build time in your schedule to just relax or to be completely spontaneous.
Vegas For Couples – Final Thoughts
