Romantic getaway is not just for younger couples. It does not have any age requirement to be able to enjoy a vacation with your special someone. For senior couples, traveling is a perfect time to rekindle the spark of the relationship. Heading out to a romantic destination and spending quality time with your loved one can reignite the feeling of being in love.
When talking about travel destinations, Las Vegas is always included in the list. It won’t be known as “entertainment capital of the world” for nothing. Thousands of people flock to different leisure areas in Vegas. With a number of lavish hotels, resorts, casinos and first-class restaurants, who would not be tempted to pay a visit to this place? But, what is romantic about going to Las Vegas specifically for elderly couples?

Romantic Dinner at Eiffel Tower Vegas
Yes, you heard it right. Las Vegas has its own version of Eiffel tower in Paris. From up there, couples can have a panoramic view of the city while enjoying a sumptuous meal. Elderly couples can reminisce more memories from the past, such as first date, first kiss and all the other firsts. City view even gets more dramatic during sunset. Most couples prefer to dine when the sun is about to set.
What make’s it more romantic? Some elderly (specifically women) are afraid of heights. This is a perfect time for the elderly men to show their affection and care. Elderly men can hold their partners to fight off the fear. Or, they can both hold each other and take pleasure in the scenic Las Vegas sky. Isn’t heartwarming to witness senior couples still in love with each other?
