The up-close view of lions, tigers, panthers and other jungle cats is appealing, but one of the main draws of the Secret Garden is the lovely tropical atmosphere, perfect for wandering hand-in-hand with someone special. There are no organized shows in the Dolphin Habitat, but the dolphins do occasional tricks on their own and guests are free to play ball with them and interact in other ways.

Relive those teenage years when the local skating rink was the prime place for fun and flirting. For something different, suggest a morning date and come on a Monday or Thursday between 9 and 11 a.m. when the rink offers adult-only skating sessions.

Can you think of a better togetherness activity than solving a crime with your new special someone? The two of you will visit one of three different crime scenes, gather clues, conduct experiments and then report your findings to the head investigator. It’s a fun way to break the ice while you crack the case.

Peppermill

2985 South Las Vegas Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 735-4177

Heralded as a throwback to the days of Vegas gone by, the Peppermill is actually two completely different establishments in one. The restaurant section is nice, pleasant, reasonably priced and a great place for a non-pretentious first date. The attached Fireside Lounge, however, is dark and atmospheric with plenty of couches to cozy up on if the chemistry is right.
