Romantic Stuff to Do on a Budget
1 - Walk to Bellagio Fountains, what else? Valentine's Day in Vegas does not require a big budget. And seeing the Bellagio Fountains does not require a stay at the luxurious Bellagio - although Bellagio redefines luxury to the point you may throw any thought of a budget out the door when you set foot inside. Attractions like the Bellagio Fountains are both romantic and easy to do since Bellagio is located in the center of the Strip.
2 - After you've seen the Bellagio Fountains, keep strolling (on Valentine's Day it is called "strolling", not "walking") along the Strip and enjoy other things to do like the Sirens of TI at Treasure Island or Volcano Eruption at the Mirage. The Fremont Street Experience is also a romantic and free thing to do although it does require transportation to Downtown Vegas.
1 - Valentine's Day Dinner: Valentine's Day in Las Vegas isn't complete without a proper dinner. Alize at the Top of the Palms Casino Resort is the clear cut #1 choice with romantic views of the Strip that will make this Valentine's Day dinner one to remember. The 2014 menu features a four course meal with the first course consisting of choices -- Smoked Salmon, Osetra Caviar, Salmon Mousse, Fried Egg Yolk, Salmon Tartare, Pickled Vegetables, OR, Terrine of Foie Gras, Caraway Crisp, Mango, Balsamic Vinegar, OR, 17 Greens and Herbs Salad - Carrots, Fennel, Cucumber, Tête de Moine Cheese, Lemon Shallot Vinaigrette.
