Since everything is bigger in Texas, you know you and your sweetie will have a lot of options to choose from when you’re craving to get away for a weekend and rekindle the romance.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet cottage to escape from the stress of the week, a Western-inspired oasis to bring out your cowboy side, or an exciting spot to put on your dancing shoes and go out on the town, Texas has it for you.
Check out our list of the 15 best romantic getaway destinations Texas has to offer:
1. The Inn at Dos Brisas – Washington
With the Spanish name “Dos Brisas,” literally translating to “Two Breazes,” this Inn takes you seriously when you say you want to get away from it all. Giving you 313 acres of wide, open spaces, you’ll forget there was once something to get away from.
Get lost in this family-ranch-turned-luxury-inn among the meadowlands between Houston and Austin with your sweetheart this weekend. You will have all the breathing room you need at Dos Brisas. On site, you can stretch out in one of its Spanish-style “casitas” (cottages), adorned with cathedral ceilings and French doors opening to private poolside patios.
Indulge in the Dos Brisas Five-Star restaurant that incorporates produce frown fresh from its own private certified-organic greenhouse and orchards. If you’d prefer to venture out for horseback riding, fishing, biking, or wine tastings, the kitchen will even pack you a picnic lunch for your day out! Talk about hospitality.
To turn up the romance at your weekend getaway, splurge for the “Romance on the Ranch” package. This two-night deal includes a rose petal turndown and dinner for two at the Inn’s restaurant and s’mores for the first night. For the second day, couples enjoy a horseback ride for two, a couple’s massage, and a four-course meal delivered directly to your private cottage’s fireside patio.
