We just booked our honeymoon to go to vegas from June 23rd until June 28th. We are staying at the Venetian and I was wondering if you Bees could help me with thinking of things to do and places to eat!
We have never been but we are super excited!!!

I was just in Vegas for a wedding last weekend and the rehearsal dinner was at Sage at Aria – it was AMAZING food and a very cool and romantic atmosphere. Highly recommend!

LOVE Sage! I totally second that suggestion for a romantic dinner. For a special sunset, go for tea or cocktails at the Mandarin Oriental. I love the restaurants at Wynn (Wazuzu and La Cave especially) and the Cosmopolitan (Holstein’s and the secret pizza place). Olives is a nice place to dine and watch the Bellagio fountains. I love Parasol Down for drinks at the Wynn.
If going downtown (the bus is great!) Le Thai is a great local spot. There is free music and fun stuff on Fremont St.
I thought the Mirage Secret Garden was worth the money to watch the dolphins! There are tons of little free shows all over the strip, you could fill a whole day going from hotel to hotel to see them all. I also thought the Atomic Museum was really good.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
I’m getting married there! Staying at Venetian too 🙂 But we go all the time…there are SO many good places.
Sugar Factory in the Paris has AMAZING food….its not just desserts. Really fun drinks, good breakfasts, entrees, etc. I highly recommend it.
The Gordon Ramsay pub in Caesars is our new favorite place. Get the candy apple martini, and the pretzels OMG
STK in the Cosmo has wonderful food, and the Chandelier bar in the hotel there is gorgeous.
Gosh there are so many places its hard to think!!

How exciting! We are going to Vegas in December so I am taking some serious notes here.
It seems like the Venetian is the place to stay!

There is a lot you can do in Vegas in five days. I strongly recommend seeing “O” by Cirque du Soleil. It is expensive ($189 each for good seats) but it is a really nice show and wonderful experience. Having seen many Cirque du Soleil shows, I can tell you “O” is unbeatable.
I recommend dining at Mon Aimee in the Paris hotel. Dinner (including a drink each and an appetizer) was about $90, but the food was very good, and you have a direct view of the Bellagio Fountains.

You could take a trip to the Grand Canyon. We did that too, but I recommend spending the night if you are going to do that. We went and came back in the same day and 8.5 hours in a bus aint no fun. :/

If you go to the half price tickets place, they can often get you dinner reservations at a reduced rate at Hugo’s Cellar in the downtown. It’s super romantic and if you get the discount it makes it more affordable. Be sure if they ask you if it’s a special occasion to let them know you’re on your honeymoon, they gave us a special dessert when we were there celebrating our dating anniversary a couple years ago.

@futuremrsmaxwell2209: Hello! Ive been to Vegas twice and we’ll be having out honeymoon there as well! The Venetian is a fantastic choice btw its my favorite hotel. Like others said, go to the half price ticket stand – its not a rip off its the real deal. Go shopping at Caesars Palace, go to Celine Dion (if youre into that sort of thing), and try to hit every hotel you can as they are each such unique experiences.
Also, sort of randomly, the chicken and waffles at the hash a go go at imperial palace is so awesome i cannot describe it. There are so many great lunch and dinner places but this is a nice breakfast option thats not the standard buffet (unless you can afford the breakfast buffet at the Paris hotel, which is beyond beyond beyond).

@remijp: OMG Parasols Up/Down are my favorite bars in Vegas. Very chill with cool cocktails!
Try to get a fountain-side seat at Picasso, so you can see the water show while dining on some amazing food!
If you like Italian/seafood, Bartolotta (sp?) at the Wynn is really good, amazingly fresh.
Comme Ca at the Cosmo is great for lunch and cool old-fashioned cocktails, and the Chandelier Bar there is really great too for an evening cocktail ambience. Holsteins has amazing boozy shakes and burgers.

I wish I had seen this thread before my sister and I went to Vegas! We kind of winged in and didn’t find anywhere that great to eat.
We stayed at the Venetian, which was nice. However, I won’t stay there again unless there’s a deal. The pool is tiny and the place is massive. It takes 20 minutes just to get to and from your room! Request a room that is close to the entrance.
I LOVE the Cosmopolitan. We saw a concert there and sent most of our time hanging out in the bars there. So cool and modern.
