The fall weather in Las Vegas is marvelous., making it an excellent time to spend time outside. It is also the perfect time to take advantage before the cold weather hits and take your dates outside. Las Vegas has many activities around town that are romantic and fun, but not so much in the hot summer or windy winters. These unique spots are great for couples going on their first date, third date or married couples going out for date night.

You don’t have to get on a plane to take a gondola ride through the streets of Venice. Las Vegas’ own Venetian Resort Hotel Casino has created a mini Venice complete with palazzos, cobblestone streets and water canals that loop through the resort. Rides take place on the Grand Canal, complete with an authentic Venetian gondola and a singing gondolier. Tickets are $18.95 or $75.80 for a private gondola. Outdoor rides begin at 10 a.m. and run through midnight daily. After your ride, continue your date with a walk through the shops or dinner canal side at one of the many fine dining restaurants.
