Dinner at STK at The Cosmopolitan
The ultra-modern contemporary steakhouse, STK, offers mouthwatering steaks along
with traditional sides like mac and cheese and asparagus, but with a non-traditional twist.
Named one of the best steakhouses in America, even their blue cheese bread is one you
will not be able to stop eating. Varying from steaks to cocktails to desserts and their sexy
vibe created by the in-house DJ, STK is definitely on top of our list!
Romance In Las Vegas
When on your honeymoon, there is nothing you would rather do than enjoy romantic
experiences with your significant other and Las Vegas offers some of the best ones! What
better than a spa treatment to get you relaxed and in the romantic mood. Las Vegas has a
multitude of spas, and we will tell you our top picks. We were nicely surprised to find the
Spa at The Linq, a full service facility with whirlpools and eucalyptus steam rooms that
offers several types of massages and body treatments, as well as facials. They have a
couples’ room and offer By My Side Packages and one of their unique amenities is the
Himalayan salt therapy cave that you can enjoy before or after your treatment. Another
great spa is in the Mandalay Bay, the Spa Mandalay, just walking in and you will be
transported to a more relaxed state of mind. They also have heated whirlpools and
eucalyptus steam rooms, as well as redwood saunas and customized couples’ massage.
You can also pick from their signature body treatments, such as the Hydration Face &
Body, a deeply hydrating full body exfoliation wrap with a customized facial to look and
feel ravishing for that romantic night out. It is hard to say which spa is the best but we
recommend, at least once while in Vegas to indulge in a body treatment or at least a day-
pass to the award-winning spa, Qua Baths and Spa, in the Caesar’s Palace. An elevated
spa experience that includes three Roman baths, a snowing Arctic Ice Room, official
Nobu brand treatments, and seasonal treatments.
Take romance to another level with a helicopter excursion, Maverick Helicopters offers
extraordinary tours over viewing the spectacular Vegas strip, enjoy the night tour where
you can really appreciate the Vegas neon lights. Better yet, take one of their Grand

Las Vegas boasts one of the best nightlife in the world and you will find top-notch bars,
lounges, and clubs. One that tops our list is the restaurant and nightclub TAO. The glitzy
restaurant side specializes in Asian cuisine. Located inside the Venetian and the Palazzo,
here you can enjoy delicious Asian entrees such as sushi and sashimi, dim sum and shabu
shabu dishes. After dinner, walk on over to the nightclub side where renowned DJs spin
the hottest songs.
We recommend the restaurant CATCH inside the Aria Hotel, one of the trendiest
restaurants that are celebrity renowned and offer a myriad of Asian-inspired sushi,
seafood and steaks with unique craft cocktails. They have a lively atmosphere that will
make you want to stay way past your dinner is finished! Leave room for their “Hit Me”
Inside the modern and glamorous Cosmopolitan, the Chandelier Room is the place to
go. With three stories of beautiful chandelier rooms and endless alcoholic beverages such
as Whiskey Business, Finishing School and many others sophisticated handcrafted
cocktails you are sure to enjoy yourself with your significant other. Another bar to

hidden, but it offers a variety of tequila and mezcal, you can drink it alone or one of their
signature drinks with flavors like pineapple and habanero hibiscus. The bar is also known
for their truffle nachos topped with chorizo, mushroom, and tripe.

Only In Las Vegas
There are several experiences you can have that you will only find them in Las Vegas,
and one you should not miss is a visit to the Las Vegas Sign. It is a pop culture landmark
that never disappoints and attracts so many people around the world. Drive a little further
down the I-15, and head over to the Seven Magic Mountains. They’re not literal
mountains, instead they are a brightly colored installation of desert artwork that are
totems resembling rocks. These both locations are perfect for your honeymoon
Vegas has had a history of infamous mobsters and only here will you find a museum

Of course you can’t complete your Vegas experience without checking out a show or
two. The renowned Cirque du Soleil has a variety of shows that everybody can enjoy,
such as Zumanity, which shows the seductive side of Cirque du Soleil. Part burlesque
and part cabaret, Zumanity will unleash your inner sensual self. Another show not to
miss is O at the Bellagio a water themed stage production and has been rated as one of
the best things to do while in Vegas.
