Whether it’s your first date, or your 50th, going on a date is meant to be a fun and exciting time. The standard dinner, drinks, or movie outings will never go out of style but sometimes the situation calls for something more unique. Changes in your date-night routine will turn-up-the-volume on any relationship, be it old or new. Score extra creative points with that special someone by trying one of these unique date ideas in Las Vegas.
1. Have a Savory Bite
For a fun spin on the dinner date, try a food tour. The Lip Smacking Foodie Tour lets you visit four of the Las Vegas Strip’s top restaurants where you can enjoy 3-4 signature dishes at each spot. Guests are always treated as VIPs with immediate seating, along with a guided walking tour of Las Vegas sights along the way.

During the Savory Bites and Neon Lights Experience, you’ll soar high above the world-famous Strip where you can see stunning views of Las Vegas landmarks.
2. Build Your Own Dessert
Skip the dinner and go right to dessert with the “build your own dessert menu” at Public House inside The Venetian. To start, choose your base of either chocolate layer cake, blackberry cobbler, or butterscotch pudding. Next you pick your sauce and toppings. Then finalize your creation with a choice of ice cream, which includes house-made flavors like cold brew coffee or rhubarb gin. A sweet treat wins hearts.
3. Ride an Authentic Gondola
No trip to The Venetian would be complete without a romantic gondola ride. Glide through the Grand Canal shops in an authentic Venetian gondola while your official gondolier serenades you and your date. That's amore!

A great way to get closer is to try new experiences together (which is what this unique dating list is all about!). Taking a fitness class is a good way to let your guard down and experience something new together. Getting outdoors exemplifies this experience.

Make this the moment where you pop the big question with a Maverick Proposal package.
12. Find a Fur-Ever Friend
Not ready for a marital commitment just yet, how about a fur baby? Adopting a pet on a date may sound a little curious at first blush, but nothing warms the heart faster than a furry friend. Just visiting these precious pets together is a unique way to spark a sense of closeness, but you may find yourself falling in love with the animals as well! Whether it’s a ball-chasing dog, a curious kitten, or a cuddly critter, The Animal Foundation welcomes your adoption interests.

16. The Void

17. Try to Catch a Killer
Dating a crime buff? CSI: The Experience might be the perfect idea for you. Based on the hit TV show, you'll perform realistic CSI tests like matching DNA, examining bullet casings, and identifying single strands of hair. It takes teamwork to solve the crime.

First date? Heading to a comedy show is a great ice-breaker because laughing puts everyone at ease. Las Vegas is full of comedy shows where you can have a laugh and some fun.

19. Float Beneath the Hoover Dam
Getting outdoors and into a new environment can make a date extra special.
