Valentine's Day Ideas in Austin, Texas

Valentine's Day is coming up soon and if you don't have plans yet, you might want to start thinking about things to do. Here's a list of great ideas you can do right here in Austin, Texas, or seek out the same type of activities in your own town!
Have a nice dinner out!
Make your reservations now. This is probably the TOP activity scheduled for Valentine's Day! Where to go in Austin? How about The Salt Lick, Outback Steakhouse, or Red Lobster? If you're looking for something a little more out of the mainstream, try Maudie's Tex Mex or Kobe Japanese Restaurant.

Do something fun!
Go rollerskating at Austin Roller Rink or go bowling at Westgate Lanes. Maybe you could try something totally new and take an Austin Boat Tour. Go dancing at one of the many wonderful downtown night clubs or raise a toast on Historic 6th Street bars.

Stay in and be quietly romantic!
Create a special dinner at home, complete with candles and quiet music. You could have dinner already made or plan on making it together. Don't forget to plan for a babysitter if you have children to ensure a quiet evening. Need a bit of pop in the evening? Check out the whirley pop for a fun way to make special memories!

Order special treats for your special someone!
You can have flowers delivered to the house, a singing telegram delivered to work, or shop online and order something sweet or something sexy. If you won't be with your honey on this special day, you should certainly make sure they are not forgotten.


  1. I forgot all about singing telegrams! I wonder if they'd come to our home? Boy, I bet the kids would get a kick out of that. We usually celebrate just the two of us a few days early to avoid the crowd (and to get a babysitter!), but then do Valentine's day with the kids.

  2. Rollerskating sounds like a blast!
