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 2024, they’ll be celebrating their 10th annual year of this popular tradition from February 2nd to the 18th, a few days after 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!
Lights of Love runs nightly from 5pm – 10pm and this year, reservations aren’t required but they will be limitign the number of people allowed in at a time to make the experience more enjoyable, though there may be a short wait. 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.
