Take A Helicopter Grand Canyon Tour

Start your celebration at one of Arizona’s natural wonders and end with aerial views of The Strip with helicopter tours from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and back. Spend between three and four hours touring sites like the Hoover Dam, the Mojave Desert, Lake Mead National Park, and the Colorado River. Your private Papillon helicopter pilot will touch you down 3,200 feet below the Grand Wash Cliffs, where you can propose, tie the knot, or get married again at the Grand Canyon. 

Once the celebration is over, you can enjoy breathtaking views of all your favorite Las Vegas landmarks at night from the air. Your trip back to our VIP terminal can be just as spectacular as the rest of your experience.

Fine Dining At The Eiffel Tower Restaurant

The perfect slice of Vegas for couples! You don’t have to worry about renewing passports to add a taste of Paris to your anniversary. French cuisine is closer than you think. Toast another year together as you enjoy a five to six-course meal at the Eiffel Tower restaurant. Fine dining at more than 100 feet above the ground in an Eiffel Tower replica should definitely make your things to do in Las Vegas for an anniversary bucket list.

The Ethel M Chocolate Factory Experience

Another must-see stop on your anniversary trip to Las Vegas is the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. You can do much better than a box of chocolates this year. Watch as premium chocolates are made on a self-guided tour or participate in a wine tasting. Spend a little quiet time together wandering through 3 acres of botanical gardens and end your visit at the Cactus Garden Café. You can even schedule a private tasting or attend a chocolate tasting class together if you plan ahead. 

Enjoy The Vibes In Downtown Las Vegas

Celebrate the way the locals do in downtown Las Vegas. Your anniversary can combine traditional views of Las Vegas with the laid-back vibes of local restaurants, some of the newest hotels and casinos, and unique attractions throughout the Arts District, just north of The Strip. The Neon Museum, Mob Museum, and the slot-machine-inspired SlotZilla Zipline at Fremont Street Experience all provide photo ops galore. 

Visit The Neon Museum

A visit to the Neon Museum, especially for lovers of all things vintage and Las Vegas nostalgia, can be a unique highlight to any romantic trip. Tour through beautifully restored neon signs and preserved unlit signs, or take your significant other to the North Gallery for the immersive AR Brilliant! Show. This 360-degree audiovisual experience takes you through 40 reanimated iconic Las Vegas signs in a one-of-kind way you’ll remember for years to come.

Experience The Hiking Trails In Red Rock Canyon

Not all things to do in Las Vegas for an anniversary have to happen on the strip or even in the city. You can make a day of it and drive yourselves to Red Rock Canyon for a hike through one of almost 30 trails. Get some fresh air together as you view native plants, geology, and the local wildlife. Depending on how outdoorsy you want to get, you can choose trails on or off of Red Rock Canyon’s 13-mile scenic drive in a range of difficulties. 

See The Strip From Above

Our helicopter tours can also be a part of an in-town luxury night out. This romantic Fly & Dine experience starts with a fine dining five-course tasting menu at Mott 32 in the Venetian Resort. You’ll ride in luxury to our VIP Las Vegas helicopter terminal ,then, your pilot will have you airborne and enjoying unforgettable views of the Bellagio fountains, New York-New York skyscrapers, Fountains of Bellagio, the Paris Eiffel Tower, and Luxor Sky Beam from above. Trust us, you don’t want to leave this off your list of anniversary ideas in Las Vegas.

Visit The Observation Deck At The Stratosphere

The observation deck at the Stratosphere is a fun activity for any time of the day but the view of the Strip and Las Vegas Valley at night is breathtaking. Eat, drink, and sightsee from the tallest freestanding observation tower in the US, at over 1,149-feet-tall. Add more adrenaline to your anniversary trip to Las Vegas with a ride on the Big Shot or a leap with the SkyJump. Or, keep your eye on the view with an anniversary dinner at the rotating Top Of The World fine dining restaurant. 

Visiting The Valley of Fire State Park

Our helicopter rides can take you to the scenic Valley of Fire and back, with views of all the landmarks in between. If you want more time at Valley of Fire State Park, make a day trip of it or spend the weekend camping. The beautiful backdrop of Aztec sandstone, Native American artwork, and natural arches is just an hour northeast of Las Vegas and 45 minutes north of Lake Mead.
