Nevada is often associated with big city lights, which is true in the larger cities like Reno and Las Vegas, but the state is also home to quaint small towns offering stunning desert and mountain scenery. Take your significant other on an unforgettable weekend getaway by staying at one of many Nevada vacation rentals. For a relaxed experience, book a stay in easygoing cities such as Incline Village and New Washoe City. When you want a big city experience to share together, Sparks and Boulder City offer attractions perfect for romance. Make one of these Nevada cities your next vacation destination for the weekend.
1. Las Vegas
Seek your fortune in one of the luckiest cities in the state when choosing Las Vegas for your romantic weekend getaway. Play a few tables or slots at casinos on the world-famous strip before heading out for the non-gambling entertainment available in this city. Share a romantic gondola ride at the Venetian. Take in the breathtaking views at Hoover Dam or Mount Charleston with both offering the perfect setting for a romantic kiss or proposal. The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is the ideal spot for couples who love the outdoors. Hike or bike the trails before taking in a magic or music show on the Strip. Treat that special someone to an upscale dinner for two at Hugo’s Cellar or Top of the World — a unique restaurant offering panoramic view of Las Vegas.
2. Incline Village
See picturesque views from your vacation rental balcony when making Incline Village your destination. Incline Village is home to Sand Harbor along Lake Tahoe and puts you in close proximity to sandy beaches, inlets, coves, and shaded forest areas. Get wet and wild when making a splash with your sweetie on a jet ski or boat from Sand Harbor Rentals. When you time your weekend getaway for the summer months, catch a performance at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. The scenic area of Incline Village offers nature trails for a romantic stroll and fine dining for a special date night at Le Bistro.
Head to Nevada’s largest city for your next romantic weekend getaway. Reno offers couples a mix of outdoor attractions to reconnect with each other and nature with Lake Tahoe in close proximity to vacation rentals. Spend a Saturday afternoon rafting or kayaking at Truckee River Whitewater Park or hike the urban trails to find the perfect place for an intimate picnic. The vibrant art scene appeals to creative mates who can tour Sierra Arts or browse the collection at the Nevada Museum of Art together. Opt for a date night at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts where you can watch a Broadway show or listen to the sounds of the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra.
4. New Washoe City
If you’re looking for the perfect spot to snap a photo or profess your love, the Galena Creek Bridge in New Washoe City delivers. With views of the lake below, the Galena Creek Bridge gives you stunning views of the desert mountains. Get ready for some outdoor adventures to enjoy together on a horseback riding excursion sponsored by Heavenly Hoofprints. Before retreating back to your cozy vacation rental, stop in at the Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory to pick up something sweet to share with your sweetheart.
Active couples can find adventure as well as rest and relaxation when visiting Mesquite for a weekend getaway. Get in a game of golf together at Wolf Creek Golf Club or Conestoga Golf Club, and then relax for an hour with a couples’ massage at the Green Valley Health Spa. This Nevada city also gives mates a chance to explore geological formations with its close proximity to Whitney Pockets and the Little Finland nature area. Snap a selfie in front of the Gold Butte National Monument and head to one of the casinos in the city when you’re feeling lucky. Mesquite is home to the Virgin River Hotel Casino and the Casablanca Casino.
6. Carson City
A weekend getaway in the capital city puts you in the heart of cultural, historical, and outdoor attractions for couples with diverse interests. Take your sweetheart on a trip back in time with a visit to the Nevada State Railroad Museum or a tour of the Nevada State Capital Building. The Blue Line Trail is the perfect spot for romance with pathways for an intimate stroll or fun-filled bike ride together. Shop for handmade gifts for that special one on Curry Street and stop in for a romantic dinner at Cafe at Adele’s or a night cap at Glen Eagles bar and restaurant.
7. Boulder City
Express your undying love for your soulmate on the observation deck of Hoover Dam on your next weekend getaway. A vacation rental in Boulder City puts you close to this national landmark and the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, offering spectacular views. See the outer Nevada area and Hoover Dam from above when treating your mate to a helicopter ride with Serenity Helicopters, or cool off from the dry heat with a kayak excursion with Desert Adventures. Connect with your sweetheart and nature with an afternoon viewing wildlife at Hemenway Park before enjoying a romantic dinner at Anthony’s Trattoria.
Adventure awaits you and your loved one when you plan a romantic getaway in Sparks. Start your weekend by making a splash as you slide down the fierce waterslides or hold hands in the lazy river at Wild Island Family Adventure Park. You can also feel the need for speed on the Truckee River when riding a watercraft together with rentals from Sparks Marina Park. If you prefer to stay on dry land, head out to the Rock Park for a hand-in-hand stroll along the hiking and walking trails, or enjoy a wildlife trip to see the wild mustangs with Sonny Boys Tours.
