Apart from its casinos, poker rooms, and live entertainment, the city of Las Vegas is also known for being the marriage capital of the world. Indeed, people from all over flock to Las Vegas’ 50 wedding chapels and countless other wedding venues to tie the knot.
In Vegas, it’s not uncommon to find newlywed couples sightseeing. And if you want to take advantage of this romantic atmosphere, there’s also no shortage of places to propose in Las Vegas. Here are some of the best places to pop the big question.
The Canals at The Venetian
The Venetian is famous for several reasons. For starters, it’s home to the largest poker room in Las Vegas, which is a feat on its own for any casino on the famed Strip. This also means lots of celebrity sightings as well as players running around for poker tournaments. The good news is that this could be the perfect way to distract your significant other from the fact that the Venetian is known for marriage proposals. Indeed, proposing on one of the Venetian’s gondolas has become somewhat of a tradition, which could make it difficult to make your proposal a surprise. But if either of you like poker, this might be the best place to do it.
Prime Steakhouse at The Bellagio
There are many restaurants at the Bellagio with an up-close view of its famed fountains. And arguably the best view is the one from the outdoor patio at Prime Steakhouse. Famous for its five-star steak, seafood, and lamb dishes as well as its fine selection of wines, it’s a great place for your pre-proposal dinner as well. And while keeping a proposal secret can also be a challenge at this high-scale and obviously romantic location, the Bellagio poker room which remains one of the busiest on the Strip could provide useful cover.
Top of the World at The Strat
Tourists make their way to the Top of the World restaurant at the Strat casino mainly for its 360-degree and 800-foot view of the cityscape. The food is also surprisingly good. This means that it might be easier to surprise your soon-to-be-spouse here, even if it is arguably one of the most romantic spots in Las Vegas. There’s nowhere with a better view than the one at the Top of the World.
The Neon Museum
If you want to make your proposal a surprise, as well as making it uniquely memorable, the Neon Museum might be the best place to do it. Located in the desert several miles outside of the city, this graveyard for Sin City’s famous neon signs is a sight to behold. At night, it morphs from being a visual account of the city’s history into the perfect spot for a romantic, neon-lit walk under the stars. With the Neon Museum reopening to the public, it might just be the best place to pop the question in Nevada.
