Valentine's Day In Las Vegas

Las Vegas doesn't always come to mind when most editors create their top ten romantic city lists, but it could make the cut with the right imagination and attention to detail. Included below are four custom-created experiences for couples to enjoy on Valentine's Day in Las Vegas. Enjoy.

Four Delights For Valetine's Day In Las Vegas.

1. The Stirling Club Valentine's Day Experience.

• Share an experience with a loved at one of the top ten spas in Las Vegas. The Stirling Club's Valentine's Day Sweetheart Spa Package includes an aromatic essence massage, with a custom blend of sensual and passionate oils. Following the massage, retire to a private candlelit room for champagne and a rose bath. $200 for members (Feb. 1 to Feb. 21).

• Enjoy a small gathering of members for a Valentine's Day dinner dance, featuring a five-course menu prepared by Charlie Palmer executive chefs and opening with Ronnie Rose, who has performed for Presidents and first ladies. $75 per person. (Feb. 13).

• Following Ronnie Rose, Kelly Clinton and friends will take the intimate stage. Clinton frequently shares the stage with special guests who are visiting Las Vegas, including Elisa Fiorillo. Free for members.

2. A Sweetheart Adventure At Red Rock Canyon.

• Take a short ride west of the Las Vegas Strip to Red Rock Canyon, which includes a scenic 13-mile drive with picnic areas and hiking trails along the dramatic backdrop of red sandstone. The scenic drive is open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Feb. 28. Admission is $5.

• Pack a picnic lunch (8 a.m. until dusk) and share it beneath the colorful cliffs of the magnificent Wilson Range at Spring Mountain Ranch Nevada State Park. The main ranch house is open daily from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., where visitors can find information about the surrounding area.

• For a memorable wild west-style adventure, choose one of the area's horseback riding tours from Vegas Horseback Tours. The tour operators feature several rides with breakfast, lunch, or dinner included. Most tours are approximately four hours long. Prices range from $109 to $139 per person.

3. A French Connection On The Las Vegas Strip.

• Secure reservations at Mon Ami Gabi, a classic French bistro created by Chef Gabino Sotelino, located at Paris Las Vegas Resort & Casino. In addition to a regular menu, Chef Terry Lynch has prepared a Valetine's dinner, which includes a choice of filet of beef for two, grilled lamb porterhouse, or pan-seared petrale sole. (Entrees range from $25 to $60).

• After dinner, take the elevator ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a breathtaking panoramic view, including the Bellagio fountains. Between Feb. 13 and Feb. 15, the Eiffel Tower Ride is offering a special package with champagne and souvenir photos. ($60 per couple.)

• Finish the evening with crepes in the faux streets of Paris. La Creperie is consistently considered one of the hottest spots for this quintessential French delicacy. All ingredients are fresh and prepared while patrons watch. (Approx. $10 to $20.)

4. Rediscover Each Other At Wynn Las Vegas.

• If anyone is still undecided where to stay, Wynn Las Vegas features a two-night package that includes a round of golf on a Tom Fazio/Steve Wynn 18-hole golf course, and lunch for two at the Country Club (starting at $625 per night).

• While there, enjoy a romantic walk through the botanical gardens and bright atrium at Wynn. Along with the gardens, take some time to enjoy the Lake of Dreams, one of the most unforgettable complimentary attractions on the Las Vegas Strip. (Free.)

• Le Reve, which is one of the top shows on the Strip, also has a Valentine's Day special. It includes VIP seating, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and truffles, and complimentary entrance at Blush or Tyrst. ($179 per person.)

As a bonus suggestion for the perfect Valetine's Day in Las Vegas, make an early date on Feb. 13 at the Creative Cooking School of Las Vegas. The proposed gourmet menu, which couples can cook together, includes maple glazed Cornish game hen with a morel cherry sauce. ($99 per person.)

For more Valetine's Day creations or assistance with reservations, members may call The Stirling Club concierge. Men might also be surprised to find that while every woman is unique, most prefer a shared experience over gifts.

Members visiting from other cities are encouraged to make reservations this week. Some choices above may also have a dress code.
