Texas is known for its iconic images of manliness: barbecue, rodeos, ranches, etc. Everybody knows the line, “Everything is bigger in Texas.” And while the southern state definitely lives up to its hyper masculine reputation, it also has a sensitive side. There’s beauty to Texas’ many vistas, ranges, and towns. From the Gulf Coast to the Hill Country, visitors and natives alike can find romantic places to bring their lovers to on Valentine’s Day.
The Lone Star State’s Capital City is located amidst the rolling hills of Hill Country. Couples can find breathtaking scenery along with quality restaurants, resorts, and hotels. Those who are looking to get away from the noise of the city’s main hub can go to Lake Austin Spa & Resort. They can also check out the hotels and restaurants around Lady Bird Lake.
What’s better than a beach getaway for love and romance? The “Sparkling City by the Bay” boasts beautiful beaches, waterside restaurants, and resorts. Couples looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day dining experience can grab a bite at Landry’s Seafood House, a restaurant located inside a boat that sits right on the water. Of course, there are plenty of other options all around Corpus Christi.
Couples who would prefer a night out on the town rather than a quiet getaway should go to Dallas, one of Texas’ largest and liveliest cities. Guys can take their gals to go on a veritable shopping bonanza in Highland Park Village. Or perhaps they can have a classy good time at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. And after all the fun is had, the night can be topped with a stay at the luxurious Warwick Melrose Hotel.
Romantics should take a stroll along the Historic Strand in Galveston. There they will find Victorian architecture, unique shops and restaurants with a vintage feel, and much more. Once they’re tired from a long walk, they can rejuvenate and relax at the San Luis Resort and Spa or call it a night and spend the night at the historic Hotel Galvez.
Known as one of Texas’ most romantic cities, San Antonio is a popular Valentine’s Day getaway. The city is well known for the Riverwalk, a famed shopping and dining district that lines the winding banks of the San Antonio River and is a must see hotspot for all visitors. Couples who really want to turn up the passion should take a walking or boating tour of Riverwalk at night.
The Austin-based attorneys at Peek & Toland, L.L.P. wish everyone a lovely Valentine’s Day.
