Just because Austin doesn’t hold the title as the “City of Love” doesn’t mean that it’s not a wonderful setting for romance. In fact, there are plenty of fun and unique activities and adventures for couples! Now that our kids are grown, my husband and I enjoy taking in all this vibrant city has to offer. With so many hidden gems, not to mention popular and trendy places that make for great date nights, I’ve put together this list of my favorites. So here’s to having a romantic Austin experience!
Savor the Best of Breakfast and Lunch
Experience the City’s Natural Beauty
Famous for its lakes and rivers, it only makes sense to explore Lady Bird Lake. Enjoy a leisurely hand-in-hand stroll or take to the water on kayak or paddle board where teamwork is everything. Don’t forget that if you wait until dusk, you and your love can witness over one million Mexican free-tailed bats emerging from beneath the South Congress Bridge.
Pamper Yourself at a Luxurious Spa
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of The Woodhouse Day Spa. We suggest a couple’s massage where two therapists will perform side-by-side to help you both relax while you enjoy each other’s company.
Enjoy a Taste of the Old World
Sip a classic and distinct concoction at Peche, Austin’s first absinthe bar. Showcasing a selection of pre-Prohibition style cocktails and a curated wine list, this New Orleans-esque space is the perfect place to cozy up with your flame.
Tantalize Your Taste Buds
The way to someone’s heart is through their stomach after all so delight your beloved with dinner at Red Ash. Savor the amazing craft Italian cuisine such as handmade pasta, locally sourced prime meats roasted on the wood-burning grill or opt for pristine seafood. You won’t be disappointed.
