As temperatures continue to drop and things get a little cozier, it might be time to plan a date night (or day!). As winter arrives, Las Vegas is one of the best spots for winter activities, as the mild weather keeps outdoor activities available and the city is filled with a number of activities to keep you warm with the one you love. Read on to see some of the best Las Vegas restaurants, bars, and things to do to include on your next romantic night or day out this winter!
What better way to warm up and be romantic than an incredible winter meal at a Las Vegas steakhouse? At Andiamo Steakhouse, you and your sweetheart can enjoy one of the most romantic meals in the city, combining classic dining room style, decadent steakhouse dishes, and rich Italian flavors. Not only is the food menu impressive, you’ll also find an extensive wine list and some of the best craft cocktails in the city. Be sure to make a reservation to get a table, and then make some plans to go bar hopping after!
Your date might be the most beautiful sight in the city, but the rooftop view at Legacy Club is a pretty close second. As temperatures drop, the fire pits at Legacy Club turn on and really set the cozy mood for winter date night in Las Vegas. No matter what time of day you go (though we recommend sunset or nighttime), you’ll have one of the best views of the city and wonderful wine, whiskey, and cocktail menus to accompany it. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, make your date interactive by taking an Elevated Spirits Craft Cocktail Course.
While going shopping might not sound like your typical date, the shops in Las Vegas can make shopping quite the experience. During this time, you’ll see beautiful displays set up in shops that can feel pretty romantic with their winter wonderland vibes. Walk around the luxury shops in the city, or bundle up to stroll around the Downtown Container Park. Not only is this a great date night, you also have an excuse to buy new winter gear! Even if you don’t get any shopping done, this winter date night idea can help you get in that cozy mood with your date.
There’s something extra special about wine that makes any date a little more romantic, so why not go right to the source? Vegas Valley Winery is the only winery in the area, located just 20 minutes from Downtown Las Vegas. Stop in to try a variety of their small-batch wines, either by the glass or as a tasting. From red wines to sweet wines (and even some hard cider), this winter date night idea is a fun way to try some local offerings. Be sure to check their event calendar as well to try to catch a night with live music.
The hikes around Las Vegas are beautiful, but can be a little tough in the spring and summer when temperatures are on the rise. If you’re in town in the winter, however, the crisp air is great for taking on some of the hikes and trails in the area. With landscapes like the Valley of Fire and Red Rock Canyon nearby, you can easily make a day trip that will get your hearts racing in more ways than one! Pack appropriate hiking gear, stay hydrated, and pick up some delicious items from Saginaw’s Delicatessen to pack a romantic picnic to enjoy on the trail.

The desert weather in Las Vegas is wonderful in the winter, but you might not see your typical winter sights around the city. Rent a car and plan a day trip to Mount Charleston, located just 45-60 minutes from Vegas, and get some classic winter activities and sightseeing in. Snow season typically kicks off in November, which will give you and your date the perfect opportunity to snuggle together and enjoy a hot chocolate at the lodge. While your love might keep you warm, be sure to pack appropriate cold-weather outfits.
One of the most amazing spots near Las Vegas is Lake Mead, home of some beautiful landscapes and the Hoover Dam. After spending some time in the desert, plan a unique winter date experience by taking a Lake Mead cruise. This is a wonderful way to take in some of Nevada’s beauty while aboard a panoramic boat. To make it an extra special date, check the calendar for availability for the dinner and brunch cruises. And just like the other outdoor activities, pack something cozy and prepare to hold hands for some warmth!
This winter, treat you and your sweetheart to some of these winter date night ideas in Las Vegas. No matter what you two do, you’ll be sure to have an amazing time and fall even more in love. While making your winter date plans, book a room at the D Las Vegas where you can cozy up in a comfortable hotel room or suite.
