Las Vegas, Nevada

Why It’s Hot: Whether it’s Barry Manilow, Celine, or Donny and Marie, Sin City’s got your favorite celebrity (or celeb impersonator) to serenade your new coupledom. Hit the jackpot at roulette, snag front-row seats to Cirque de Soleil, book the 16-course tasting menu at Joel Robuchon or dance ’til dawn at Krave (the nonstop party atmosphere is perfect for celebrating your nuptials).

Where to Stay: Mega-hotel Mandalay Bay (often referred to as “Mandalay Gay,” because of its popularity with gay couples) has one of the biggest (we’re talking 11 acres!) and best pool complexes on the Strip. Lounge poolside on a cushioned chaise at the adults-only Moorea Beach Club, where European sunbathing (that’s, ahem, topless) is de rigueur, thanks to frosted glass panes (from $145, MandalayBay.com).
