Best Ideas for Valentine's Day in Austin, TX
Here are five of our favorite ideas on how to spend your Valentine's Day in Austin!
Dazzling Date Night Out:
Nothing says I love you more than quality time with your partner at a lovely dinner! Our favorite spot for a downtown stroll and epic Lady Bird Lake views is Arlo Grey. For an incredible filet, make reservations at Eberly on South Lamar. If you are looking for a restaurant that has top many national 'Best Restaurant' lists and Tex-Mex is your vibe, we recommend making reservations at Suerte. Lastly, and certainly not least, if you are looking for a true Texas dinner with an amazing atmosphere, make reservations at Lonesome Dove. You can ensure your Valentine's Day is satiated with any of these restaurants.
Couples Spa Day:
Grab your partner, sibling or best friend and give them a day of pampering spa treatments. Take time to relax, refresh and renew yourselves at one of Austin's well-known local spas. Schedule Make sure to book and reserve as they only have limited availability for this special day! Share over 2 hours of couples Swedish massage, infrared sauna time, sugar scrub, and more at Viva Day Spa. Another local favorite, Milk + Honey, is offering a 75-minute couples signature massage with warm oil scalp and neck enhancements as one of their amazing Valentine's Day specials.
Staycation at a Historic Austin Hotel:
In search of an ‘old-vibe’ experience this Valentine’s day? Give your special someone the romantic staycation they deserve at the famous Driskill Hotel downtown, historic modern Hotel San Jose on South Congress Avenue, or the stately Hotel Ella who is hosting a Valentine's murder mystery dinner. Immerse yourselves in history and create more memories with your loved one with these amazing retreats!
Romantic Afternoon Hike:
Not fond of spending heart day in a restaurant crowded with couples? Or want to save money while still having a lovely day with your sweetheart? Get out and spend your day enjoying the charm of nature and catch the amazing sunset with a romantic day of hiking at River Place Nature Trail, Mount Bonnell, or the beautiful Green Belt! Surprise your partner with wine, cheese, chocolate, and flowers on a hilltop or give a love letter and read it at a nice viewpoint!
