While known for hosting weddings, many may forget that Las Vegas, Nevada is also filled with a dynamic assortment of locations to propose. There are so many, in fact, that it can be overwhelming to settle on where to ask this oh-so-important question—not to mention upcoming costs and question marks that only compound that overwhelming feeling.
To help you plan for this life changing moment so that it goes as smoothly as possible, we’ve scoured the 11 best places to propose in Las Vegas. Cheers to this exciting endeavor!
Combining a water show that rivals the most spectacular firework display and music that stirs up all the feels, the Bellagio Fountains on the Las Vegas Strip creates an ambiance ripe for the perfect proposal.
While your honey is captivated by the show, assume the proposal position and pull out that ring. Then, when the water mellows and they turn around, they’ll be met with one of the most exciting visuals ever: you. The fountain show is about 10 minutes long, so you can get into position around the nine-minute mark.
As for one of the best places to view the show? Look no further than an alcove on the sidewalk that borders the Bellagio. To get a prime spot, claim your space at the end of a show.
Note that on Monday – Friday, the water starts spouting every 30 minutes from 3 pm – 8 pm and then every 15 minutes from 8 pm – 12 am. On Sundays, the show commences at 11 am, starting up every 30 minutes until 7 pm and then every 15 minutes until midnight. The show is most dramatic after dark.
Do you have to travel to Paris to create that iconic, hopelessly romantic top-of-the-Eiffel-tower moment? Not at all. In fact, you can craft that magic right on the Las Vegas Strip. After dark, whisk your special someone to the top of the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck, a paired down replica of the famous Parisian tower, and pop the question after you’ve taken in the tapestry of lights.
You can also choose to save the big moment for a meal at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant to facilitate a brunch, lunch, or dinner proposal. This eatery sits 110 feet above the Las Vegas Strip and provides intimate tables and views of the Bellagio fountains. For $600, the proposal packages include a window table, champagne toast, custom menu, wine pairing, and half-a-dozen long-stem roses.
If you want to craft a whimsical proposal, procure the services of one of many hot-air balloon companies in Las Vegas and set off on a sunrise ride toward Red Rock Canyon.
While stunning from all perspectives, Red Rock Canyon is especially magnificent from above. As you ooh and awe over the alien-like crimson rock formations during this romantic balloon ride, open the ring box, tap your significant other on the shoulder, and ask those famous words: “Will you marry me?”
Through the tour company Viator, you can book a one-hour ride that includes champagne breakfast with light hors d’oeuvres and unobstructed views of the Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Canyon, and surrounding mountains.
Each season, an incredible team of horticulturalists and designers transform the 14,000-square-foot Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden into a wonderland of floral displays that emulate the distinctive sights and colors of spring, summer, fall, and winter. There’s also a can’t-miss display for Chinese New Year.
If you’re hoping to score gorgeous proposal shots, this is the site for you. And, if you really want to do it up, why not book a table at Picasso—the Bellagio’s new French eatery featuring original Picassos!—and then surprise your new fiancé with a Bellagio suite post-proposal? This is by far one of the best sights in Las Vegas, and it’s free!
After enjoying spa treatments, swimming in the two-level pool, and dining at the award-winning steak and sushi restaurant, make your way to the private beach for the big moment. Or, you can rent one of the site’s easily accessible kayaks to take your proposal to the water.
If you want to be old-school with your proposal, go on a gondola ride in the Venetian Canal, where a gondolier in traditional garb will take you past the faux sights of Italy.

Why not go for a classic restaurant proposal while savoring some fine dining from more than 800 feet? The aptly-named Top of the World Restaurant provides some of the most spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip as it rotates 360 degrees every 80 minutes.
To make things easy, the restaurant provides proposal packages that offer long-stem roses, champagne, a photo, and a four-course tasting menu. The most elite package features a tableside magic show that ends with the appearance of the engagement ring.
If you and your honey enjoy the nightlife, head to Fremont Street which is composed of five blocks of historic Las Vegas and features a wild mix of activities and events.
Start the fun with a ride on SlotZilla Zipline, one of the most famous urban ziplines. Then, enjoy the Viva Vision spectacle which is an amazing light show projected on the canopy above Fremont Street. Just make sure to check the live music schedule before you go, and see if you can time your arrival with one of the many bands that grace the street’s three stages.
When you’re ready to propose, head to the oh-so-romantic Hugo’s Cellar and drop to one knee in-between your lobster and filet mignon feast.
Escape the frenetic energy of the Las Vegas Strip by hopping aboard the High Roller Observation Wheel, the world’s tallest observation tower. Rising 550 feet above Las Vegas, you’ll have 30 minutes to pop the question, as that’s how long it takes the wheel to make a full rotation.
To customize the experience, you can purchase tickets to the Open Bar In The Sky cabin, which features a full bar and bartender, or the Chocolate Experience which provides handcrafted chocolates from Las Vegas-based Ethel M Chocolates and a complimentary drink. To score truly awe-inspiring sights, visit at night when the lights come to life.
Do you and your person have a shared affinity for adrenaline? If so, head to The Big Apple Rollercoaster which is perched on the roof of New York, New York and features a thrilling 180-degree “heartline” twist.
While we don’t recommend pulling out the ring on the ride, we do recommend putting in some thought about the right moment to propose.
