Las Vegas is a city that sees tourists from every corner in the world and of almost every age group. If you are traveling as a couple and you want your vacation as romantic as possible, then some hotels will be better than others in making you feel that way. A couple that is looking for romance will not want a place known as party central in the city. A quieter hotel can do wonders for a vacation when you are with a loved one. Here are the top Las Vegas strip hotels for those looking for a vacation for 2.
The Venetian is at a great spot on the Las Vegas strip and it is a perfect destination for couples.
