Head to the top of the world for a few thrills
The top of the world = the Top of the World restaurant located at the top of the Stratosphere, more than 800 feet above the madness of the Strip. The revolving restaurant is a bit of a Vegas bucket list item and a great place for a special night out with someone you rather fancy. You can also up the ante a bit with one of the thrill rides that drop, dangle, and spin you over the side of the Strat some 900 feet off the ground. For the real adrenaline-junkies, though, there's also the Guinness Book record-holding SkyJump, an open-air 829-foot jump.
Make some magic at a magic show
Maybe it's something you don't quite realize because it's probably not something you often think about while living here, but Las Vegas is the world capital of magic shows, hands-down. There are a TON here, all the time, and we've recently seen a surge in new magic shows opening, too. While you can never go wrong with a classic like Penn & Teller, Piff the Magic Dragon is just the right mix of self-deprecating humor, an adorable dog, an intimate space, and a grown-ass man in a dragon costume. For a price, these will keep you both laughing, which is a good headspace to be in on any date.
