Las Vegas is clearly one of the best places in the world to get married, but it’s also an absolutely thrilling place to get engaged. There are so many exciting spots for popping the question. Notable among them are the picturesque Bellagio fountains and the top of the Paris’s Eiffel Tower. And we can’t even begin to count the number of impossibly romantic restaurants. But here are some incredible new venues for your special proposal, ones that almost know one knows about—yet!
In April, the new Linq shopping and dining complex near The Quad (formerly the Imperial Palace) will unveil its magnificent centerpiece, a 550-foot observation wheel, aptly named “The High Roller.” The structure is 9 feet taller than the Singapore Flyer and 107 feet taller than the London Eye. The High Roller offers 28 enclosed, transparent sphere-shaped cabins, carrying up to 40 passengers each. It will take 30 minutes to make one picturesque revolution with views of the entire Strip. Plenty of time to pop the question, guys! The expected fare is under $20 per person. Be one of the first! There will be numerous sophisticated bars and cafés in the Linq complex, for toasting afterward.
If you’re leaning more toward a proposal out in nature, consider a desert trail ride at sunset, guided by seasoned cowboys. How ’bout offering her a hand to help her off her horse, a hand with a dazzling diamond ring in it? Or…your idea here….. Your sunset desert ride includes a yummy supper afterward, complete with homemade apple pie for dessert. What an all- American way to pop the big question! (For more information, contact Wild West Horseback Adventures, 702-792-5050.) If you’d rather go it alone, we recommend a romantic picnic along one of Red Rock Canyon’s scenic trails just outside Vegas. Take in gorgeous views of the canyon at sunset, and then the glamorous lights of Las Vegas in the distance as you head back to your hotel. Big sigh. What woman could ever forget a proposal surrounded by the spectacular beauty of Las Vegas’s desert vistas and the sight of the illuminated Strip in the distance?
We’d love to hear YOUR idea of a great Las Vegas proposal, if you’ve got a unique and creative one in mind. Or, maybe you’ve already proposed and want to tell about it. Do share.
