ANTI-VALENTINE’S DAY VACATION IDEAS!

What to do with your loved one this Valentines Day?

 TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

Anti-Valentine

 Las Vegas is the ideal destination for a perfect romantic valentines getaway.

There are several recommendations for this upcoming Valentine’s Day that we are pleased to share with you.

Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas, Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino and Flamingo Las Vegas each offer something for those looking to escape this Valentine’s Day.

Qua Baths & Spas at Caesars Palace offers a couples treatment called Twin Souls designed to harmonize a couple’s energy while Payard Patisserie will have a wide variety of chocolates to purchase for loved ones.

Guests to The Village at Lake Las Vegas can look forward to festive menus at select Village restaurants as well as singles and couples cruises along Lake Las Vegas.

Couples are encouraged to board the LaContessa for the annual Valentine’s Day Cruise at 6 p.m. The one hour cruise will feature a complimentary glass of champagne and a cash bar for additional beverages.

Did you know there is a cruise called The Non-Valentine’s Day Cruise for singles which departs at 7:30 p.m. and will also include a complimentary glass of champagne and a cash bar for additional beverages. So even if you don’t have a valentine when you arrive in Las Vegas you could easily end up with one!

Love and marriage

For those looking to propose, The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas offers proposal packages with chilled champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. If the proposal has already taken place, or the engagement period is going to be very short, then plan a wedding at the Flamingo Garden Wedding Chapel, or choose from Las Vegas’ many chapels.

Burlesque University

Vegas Valentine’s Day visitors can now attend X Burlesque University (XBU) taught by the performers featured in the “X” Burlesque show at Flamingo Las Vegas. For a limited time classes will be offered at 3:00 p.m. inside Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas.  Upon completion of the 75-minute class in the art of burlesque, XBU students will receive a complimentary make-up kit, professional souvenir photo and official XBU diploma. The cost per class is $34.95.

The Anti-Valentine’s Day

There are also options for people who are looking to escape to Las Vegas for “Anti-Valentine’s Day.” Simon at Palms Place is throwing an unconventional Valentine’s Day party, its Singles Soiree on February 14. The party is for the unattached to defy the holiday’s typical traditions by being social with food, drinks, and friendly activities such as combating a heart-shaped piñata. Prizes will be given away throughout the event including gift cards to Sunset Tan, Drift Spa & Hammam and Palms Casino Resort.

Disneyland

 

The Chinese government approved the Walt Disney Co.’s deal to open a theme park in Shanghai. The new park is planned for the Pudong new district of China’s financial capital. Disney will be hoping the Shanghai park, with an estimated price tag of US$3.6-billion, will fare better than its Hong Kong property, which has struggled with lower-than-expected attendance and financial losses since it opened in 2005.
