3 of the Most Romantic Places to Go in Texas


Small Town Texas Charm – Brenham

Romantic getaways don’t always need to be exotic – sometimes, all that’s need is the quiet, quaint appeal of a small town, encompassed by postcard-worthy views. That’s exactly what you’ll find when you visit Brenham, Texas. Located in the heart of scenic Texas Hill Country, you’ll plenty to do here, whether you’re visiting Pleasant Hill Winery (part of the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail) or Windy Winery, dining at 96 West, or enjoying a performance at the Dr. W.W. O’Donnell Performing Arts Center. Downtown Brenham is home to live music throughout the summer, art galleries and local theater productions. If you’re looking for romantic places to go on a date in Brenham, you’ll have more than enough to choose from (and if you need dessert, head to Blue Bell Creameries – you’ll thank us).

The best way to experience Brenham is with a stay at Murski Homestead Bed & Breakfast. You won’t find a more romantic place to stay than this inviting Texas bed and breakfast. The accommodations and amenities you’ll find here are hard to beat. Whether you’re exploring the surrounding area, or enjoying each other’s company, Murski Homestead is your choice.


A Capital Choice for Couples – Austin

Austin might be weird – but that’s ok, because the capital city is a favorite among romantic places to go in Texas. Known for its thriving music scene, artists and stunning cityscape, Austin has become a magnet for twenty-somethings. So, listen up, millennial couples: You need to spend your next romantic escape in Austin, not overseas. Plan your trip around the Austin City Limits Music Festival (Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar and Mumford and Sons are headlining), dine at VOX Table and Uchi (or any of the countless food trucks around the city if you’re looking for something cheaper), or visit a craft beer brewery or one of countless coffeeshops. If you want to take in the beauty of the city while having fun, head to Rocket Electrics and rent an electric bike. Bike dates are never bad idea, especially with the scenery you’ll find here.


Alamo City Allure – San Antonio

Aside from home to one of the NBA’s most successful franchises (sports-minded couples, take note), San Antonio is a beautiful city home to multiple attractions, including the scenic San Antonio River Walk. Shops, restaurants, art galleries and more line the San Antonio River Walk, and thanks to its beautiful European-esque design, the river walk is one of the most romantic places in Texas. Imagine floating down the San Antonio river at night on a boat tour, surrounded by beautiful building and lights. It’s not hard to see why it’s one of the most romantic places to go in Texas. While you’re there, be sure to visit The Alamo, a legendary icon in both Texas and U.S. history.
