Almost 700,000 people actually live in Las Vegas. And while the rest of the world might find it hard to believe, these people actually do pretty normal things like grocery shop, go to school, get their car washed—and yes, go on first dates.
One of the best first date ideas in Las Vegas that often gets overshadowed by bars and coffee shops is museums! Recently, our team dug into data, reviews, and insider sources to determine the best Las Vegas museums for first dates.
Below, you’ll find that list. Not only did these amazing museums get added to the list, but they are now proud recipients of our Healthy Framework’s Best Award for the top museums in Las Vegas for first dates.
Let’s take a look at the winners in a randomized order.
