A short drive from the Strip in Las Vegas lies an unexpected gem: Lake Las Vegas. Inspired by the Mediterranean, this desert community is situated on a 320 acre lake and boasts shopping, nightlife, water sports and golf for guests.

Accommodations range from private home and villa rentals to the AAA Four Diamond Loews at Lake Las Vegas Resort. The Loews also happens to be an ideal place to get married or throw an upscale wedding event outside of the hustle and bustle of the Strip.

With their 9,000 square foot spa and two expansive pools, brides will want to spend a few days with her bridesmaids to unwind and prepare for the upcoming events. With nearby golf and Hummer tours (which can easily be arranged via their Adventure Concierge), guys will be just as eager to enjoy time at Loews Lake Las Vegas.

When it comes time to grab a bite, Marssa is the place to go with Master Sushi Chef Osamu “Fuji” Fujita crafting the menu. Fuji is arguably the best sushi chef in all of Nevada, having appeared on episodes of Dinner Impossible on The Food Network and in countless articles.

If couples are looking for a family-friendly destination, Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort gives kids all kinds of fun programs to take part in. From the pool-side Kidbanas to pedal boats, special healthy menus and even kid-camps.

As for weddings on property, the possibilities are endless. From the outdoor Andalusian Gardens to the Baraka Ballroom, couples will enjoy the Mediterranean décor and stunning evening sunsets as the ideal backdrop for their special day.

If you have been under the impression that the only thing to find in Las Vegas is gambling and casino hotels, think again, and visit Lake Las Vegas.
