Looking to plan a romantic evening with your significant other, but running out of new ideas to keep the spark burning? Look no further, the Lone Star state has plenty of romance-filled options that will leave you wondering why it is referred to as the Lone Star state to begin with!
Here are just a few of our favorite romantic Texan activities to enjoy with your partner.
1) Explore the vineyards of Texas’ countryside
Uncork and unwind by indulging in some Texan wine at one of the many vineyards through Texas’ countryside. Though Texas might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of fine wine, the heart of the state’s countryside happens to be one of the largest and oldest wine-growing regions in the United States. Wine Road 290, in particular, is becoming increasingly famous for its scenic vineyards set amid the rolling countryside hills. Wine not check it out yourselves?
We recommend staying at this quirky and romantic cabin rental in the charming German-influenced town of Fredricksburg.
If you are looking for a bit more of a secluded experience instead, check out this adorable tiny house that sits within close proximity to some of the best vineyards:
2) Go stargazing in the desert
Embrace the Dark Sky Ordinance and go stargazing in Western Texas, where the dry desert air makes for some of the brightest stars you’ll ever see. Allow yourselves to get away from all of the light pollution of the inner city and let the Texan stars light up your world instead.
If this sounds like something for you and your honey, head over to Terlingua, Texas, which is known to be one of the best places to experience total seclusion and truly dark skies. Snuggle up with your significant other in this unique eco-dome for a truly unforgettable experience.
3) Explore a geological wonder
If you and your significant other are looking to get hot and sweaty, might we suggest taking one of the more strenuous hiking paths in the beautiful Big Bend National Park? This National Park is located in western Texas and is so mesmerizing that it is often referred to as a geologic wonder by scientists. The dramatic mountain range surrounded by weather beaten canyons and arid desert is sure to provide an adventurous getaway for any couple!

4) Pamper yourself in seclusion
Want to get away from it all without sacrificing style and comfort? Allow yourselves to be pampered with massages, wine and cheese, and chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne while being just minutes from the gorgeous Guadalupe River at this rustic cabin.
Here, couples can relax in the hammock, take a stroll through the gardens, cozy up around the fire pit, or soak in the outdoor hot tub—all while taking in the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
