Valentine’s Day and Vegas are a match made in heaven, with romantic dinners, rousing entertainment and sublime couples-friendly fun all mingling in a single destination. Here’s an itinerary for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day at the Riviera Hotel and Casino (with some tips for single folks along the way).
Get An Early Start: Valentine Art Hike
February 13, 2013 at 9 a.m.
Valentine Sketch At Red Rock Grotto
Join a hike to the lush First Creek “grotto” in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, filled with flowers, waterfalls and more. No experience necessary; the guided hike will take a 30-minute break to let participants make a wildflower painting on stained paper with watercolors.
This moderate hike (a little over 3 miles) is free and open to singles and couples ages 12+. Reservations are required.
Spend Valentine’s Day Lounging in True Vegas Splendor
Head into the Riviera’s 100,000 square feet of classic casino gaming. Our casino features all your favorite games – craps, blackjack, roulette, mini-baccarat, poker, slots and more – in their many different forms and flavors. You can easily spend a whole day just having fun with the games, sitting next to your special someone (or perhaps meeting your future special someone).
Dine Deliciously At R Steak & Seafood
We’ve written previously about R Steak and Seafood, the Riviera’s popular steakhouse that’s often heralded as a “hidden gem” by guests and Vegas locals alike. This Valentine’s Day, we’re featuring a gourmet menu that starts with a special champagne toast and continues with four courses specially designed to tantalize your taste-buds, including your choice of a succulent pink peppercorn crusted filet mignon served with a pomegranate reduction or a petite filet and lobster tail, and ending happily with sweet chocolate-covered strawberries.

Enjoy Some Extraordinary Entertainment
Conclude your day-long romantic Valentine’s date with a show:
Want to share a joke with your significant other? Take in the Original Pranksters Comedy Duo, Steve-O and Tom Green, appearing February 14 through the 17. They’ll keep you laughing all night.
Or perhaps you’d prefer to be thrilled and awed? Check out ILLUSIONS starring Jan Rouven. His show is equal parts mesmerizing and exhilarating, with death-defying acts of magic, heart-thumping music and five hot dancers. This is a show that will get your pulse pounding.
Or maybe you’re still trying to find someone with whom to spend your Valentine’s Day? Might we suggest an evening with our Crazy Girls, a sassy, funny, sexy topless revue by the most beautiful ladies in Vegas.
Your unforgettable Valentine’s Date may be winding down at this point – or, if you’re lucky, just getting started. Either way, it may be time to head back to your room at the Riviera, guaranteed to be available at the best rate. Book the perfect Valentine’s Day in Vegas now.
