Love Is In The Air At This Local Chocolate Factory’s Stunning Cactus Gardens

Lights of Love returns this Saturday!

One of Las Vegas’ favorite chocolate factories is also home to Nevada’s largest botanical cactus garden. Each February, Ethel M Chocolates turns its unique natural oasis into a romantic escape filled with lights, love, and lots of chocolate, of course. This Saturday, the chocolatier invites Las Vegans back for its 7th annual Lights of Love, running from January 30 through February 14 (Valentine’s Day).

Experience the magic of the desert in a whole new light as you take a leisurely stroll through the three-acre cactus garden glowing with half a million sparkling lights. Enjoy the warm hues of romantic light installations and celebrate love as you drink Ethel’s signature hot chocolate and feast upon some of their most tasty treats.

Boxes of assorted chocolates, strawberries dipped in chocolate, and other chocolatey delights will be available for purchase, some of which you can also pre-order to skip the lines. To make your experience even sweeter, you can even make a reservation for in-store chocolate and wine tastings, perfect for a romantic evening for two!

Valentine’s Tasting Packages range from $65-$85, and include a chocolate or chocolate and wine tasting for two, as well as a special 14-piece Valentine’s Day box of chocolates.

Lights of Love runs nightly from 5pm – 10pm. Reservations are required, and are made for groups of up to six people. In the spirit of love, guests are charged a $5 donation fee for each reservation, 100% of which goes to the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas.

In order to ensure everyone’s safety guests must wear masks unless actively eating or drinking, and social distancing is required.

Location: 2 Cactus Garden Drive, Henderson

Hours: 5pm – 10pm nightly
