romantic places to go in texas

Texas is known for doing things right, whether it’s the state’s renowned BBQ, iconic culture or championship-winning sports teams. And, thanks to the Lone Star State’s beautiful scenery and exciting environment, there’s no shortage of romantic places to go in Texas! It’s not all rodeos and country music (as some might think) – it’s great place to visit when you and your significant other need to getaway. Keep reading, and we’ll show you where the best escapes in the state are.

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.

Bride & Groom at Murski Homestead

Here at the Murski Homestead in Brenham, TX, National Wedding Month is one of our favorite times of year. February is a time to celebrate the wonderful gift of marriage, as well as the traditions of the ceremony in which you commit your life to your partner. Weddings are such a unique celebration that they deserve to be celebrated as a whole. It is also a great opportunity to celebrate your own marriage, something we would be happy to facilitate at the Homestead. Book a room and get away form your busy life and take the opportunity to celebrate your souse and intentionally remember the commitment you made to one another.

National Wedding Month is a great time to jumpstart your wedding planning as there is a higher frequency of bridal shows and other wedding planning events. If you’re still looking for a venue, check out our wedding packages, which come in many varieties and are always tailored to meet you needs.The Murski Homestead is among the most popular venues in the Houston and Austin areas for its simple, charming atmosphere, and industry expertise. Our goal is to partner with couples to create beautiful, stress-free weddings that are a perfect representation of the couples they are celebrating.

Whether you’re looking for a spring, summer, or fall wedding we would love to help you get started in February or otherwise. We have planned weddings in less than 6 weeks, and others starting over a year in advance. Whatever suits your needs and desires, we can make it happen for you. Because we are well connected in the area’s wedding industry we would be happy to recommend National Wedding Month events for you to attend, like the Essence of Australia Trunk Show happening February 6th in Bee Cave, TX. February is a great opportunity to start gathering ideas for big day, which we would love to help you execute, making it a seamless and memorable event.

If you’re already married, then consider setting aside a weekend to get out of town to stay with us in our peaceful sanctuary. You can stay in one of our cozy, country rooms where you will be completely undisturbed by the demands of everyday life. Our made-from-scratch breakfasts are always a delicious Texas experience. Book some time in the outdoor spa located in our restored vintage smokehouse where you will find a hot tub for the ultimate relaxing experience.
