For the first leg of our honeymoon (3 nights, before we leave for Maui (!!!) ) we are going to Las Vegas. This is mostly due to the fact that we are coming from Eastern US, want to get adjusted to the time difference, and dont like full days of travel.
Neither of us gamble much, but we appreciate food, pools, and fun night-life that doesn’t include clubs (more pub, bar, happy-hour type things). Since this will be immediately after our wedding, we definitely want some romantic ideas! Any suggestions?! We are staying on the strip.
ETA: Our honeymoon is in late september!

Bridebee13: SO and I go to Vegas a few times a year and absolutely LOVE IT!!!!
If you guys like pools, i really like the Golden Nugget on fremont street. It is $20 for access but it has the shark tank and slide THROUGH the tank. it is awesome! Mandalay Bay also has a wonderful man made beach.
For romance, i would suggest a trip up the eiffle tower at Paris hotel. The view is amazing and there is a nice little restaurant up there. I would also suggest a gondola ride at the Venetian. If your budget allows, you can get a private one – but it is much more cost effective to share with another couple – your choice.
There are TONS of bars – you wont have a problem finding one. if you are looking for something kind of unique – i always thought the bike bars looked fun. Someone bikes around with you and a few other people on a bench trailing behind while you drink! It is a fun way to get from one end of the strip to the other.
Don’t miss the fountains and inside gardens at The Bellagio – wonderful photo ops.

I highly recommend the Stratosphere! It’s like 110 stories up, and the view of the city is amazing. Plus it has some fun rides.

ladyamalthea: Ah! I went there once when I was much younger and unfortunately don’t want to go back. I am afraid of heights! It would be perfect for someone who isn’t, though!

Bridebee13: i cheat and say i swam with the sharks heheh.
and i also saw your comment about the stratosphere – yeah we stayed there so got free access. Poor SO was breathing pretty heavily in the elevator and he didnt want to go near the windows just kinda hung back. He went outside for a little, but you could tell it was not his thing – especially seeing the scary rides!! I dont even think i am game enough to get on those lol

Bridebee13: i would recommend seeing a show! It’s fun to get all dressed up for dinner and a show! Cirque du Soilel’s “O” is breathtaking and definitely worth seeing! DH has gone w me to a couple different cirque du soilel shows and he’s always surprised by how much he likes them! We’re going to vegas for a friends wedding in August and I’m hoping to see Zumanity or O again lol

I’m with Hazyleyedbeauty on the Cirque du Soilel’s “O” idea. My FI and I were just in Vegas for a weekend and that’s what we did on Saturday night. We made reservations at a Spanish resturant inside of Aria (terrible, don’t go there. Try CUT inside of the Palazzo) and then saw “O” and it was absolutely amazing. We were both dressed up, rented a limo to take us from dinner to the show… all those little things make it so awesome. Then we went to see the fountain at the Bellagio and took pictures in front of it… the next day walked around, went shopping, sat at an outdoor bar had a beer… got a couple’s massage at our hotel… There is so much you can do…
Have fun, Vegas in September is a good time to go, that’s when it starts cooling down

if you like steak, have dinner on the terrace at Prime in the Bellagio.

Get dressed up and go see a show! As other posters have mentioned, cirque du soleil “O” was amazing! We also had dinner at a Chinese restaurant called Jasmine’s in the Bellagio which overlooks the fountains (if you get a good table).
