Las Vegas is the ultimate honeymoon destination — it’s only a short flight away from Canada and there’s so much to see and do, which makes it the perfect place for your first trip as newlyweds! We’ve compiled a list of the top five things you must do on your Las Vegas honeymoon to make sure you get the most out of your trip — without mentioning gambling once!
1. Visit the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is an unmissable sight and it’s just a short flight from Las Vegas!
Sundance Helicopters provide a range of different flights to the Grand Canyon and the surrounding areas, but the sunrise flight is especially amazing — exactly what you want on your honeymoon.
The 45 minute flight provides you with breath taking panoramic views of the desert scenery as the sun rises, and it comes with in-flight narration so you can learn about the local history as you take in the natural beauty.
The flight lands in the Canyon and you will be served a champagne breakfast and have time to take photos — a honeymoon selfie at such a vital landmark is a must! On the flight back, you cruise over the Las Vegas strip, and get to watch it wake up for the day ahead.
2. Sunset on the High Roller
From sunrise to sunset! Once you’ve taken in the sunrise by helicopter, the best place for you to see the sunset is on the High Roller at the LINQ Promenade. The Ferris wheel stands at 550ft tall, making it the tallest in the world!
It provides amazing views of Las Vegas as the sun goes down and the lights come on, and some of the pods are equipped with bars so you can enjoy a glass of bubbly as you take in the sights.
3. Sample the Gourmet Food
Did you know Las Vegas is a seriously foodie location? Make the most of your trip by dining in some of Sin City’s most incredible restaurants. Joël Robuchon, the most Michelin-starred chef in the world, has two restaurants at the MGM Grand. Try L’Atelier Joël Robuchon for exquisite French dining, visit one of Gordon Ramsay’s places or dine on amazing food with an even better view at Picasso at the Bellagio.
If you’re a fan of cocktails, you have to visit the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. If the glamorous, glittering surroundings weren’t enough, you can also order a secret off-menu cocktail — the Verbena, which will do strange but incredible things to your mouth. Tell them hitched sent you!

4. Enjoy a Las Vegas Show
Shows in Las Vegas are one of a kind. You’ll already be dazzled by the bright lights and the incredible sights, and the shows will wow you even more.
Whether you decide to see a legendary superstar performing at one of the hotels on the strip, or take in an awe-inspiring display such as Cirque de Soleil, Le Reve - The Dream or any of the other incredible delights — you won’t regret it. Upgrade to a VIP experience to make the most of your show — the upgrade at Le Reve includes bonus views underwater, champagne and chocolates!
5. Take a Class with a Celebrity Chef
It’s not what you first think of when you think ‘Las Vegas’ but celebrity pastry chef Megan Romano can ensure your marriage gets off to a sweet start!
She runs a newlywed cookery class at her famous café and bakery, Chocolate and Spice, where couples can learn to cook sweet and savoury dishes. After the class you can enjoy lunch at the café before heading out to take in more sights on a full stomach!
