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).

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.

Bed and Breakfast Rates Near Brenham TX

Bed and Breakfast rates are a subject that comes us often as people are looking for lodging.  You may ask yourself what defines the rates of a Bed and Breakfast and how are they determined.  Well, to put it quite plainly, Bed and Breakfast rates fluctuate just like hotel rates do.  They may be determined by the season, the location, the type of bed, the type of room amenities, the services offered, the time of year, the rate of occupancy, the number of room types available, the state or country where the Bed  and Breakfast is located, the type of revenue needed to cover a current situation or billing season, the number of consecutive room nights being booked (length of stay), the number of occupants within the room, the number of beds in the room, whether or not a package is being booked with the room, the whim of the owner and the list  goes on.

The Garden Room

Bed and Breakfast Lodging near Brenham

What you can count on is that a Bed and Breakfast should offer a much higher quality and intimate stay than a hotel, motel, hostel, or vacation rental!   Typically a Bed and Breakfast would not only afford a private room with a private bath but also complimentary concierge  service, engaging hosts,  complimentary atypical amenities and a dynamite breakfast.  A Bed and Breakfast host usually will go out  of their way to accommodate their guests needs and requests, often trying to address them even before they arise.  Here at Murski Homestead we also offer special services like cooking classes and elopements!  Let us take the hassle out of searching and book your room with us today….where everything is upfront and easy to understand!  Check out our neat historic town where there is always something  happening….and don’t forget we will do our best to  take care of all your needs.
