If big things and a country atmosphere sound like your cup of tea, romantic destinations in Texas are a great option for that intimate trip. Following are a few choice romantic destination ideas.
Romantic Destinations in Texas
A trip to Texas is said to be like a trip to another country. The Lone Star State is an area that is totally different than any other state around it, with influences to its food, culture and people coming from both the United States and Mexico right below it. The big cities of Austin and Dallas offer tourists many different cultural and entertainment possibilities, while historical sites such as the Alamo and other western spots offer a glimpse into the past. Romantic destinations in Texas can take any form you want, from the trendy and modern to the country feel of the Old West.
Another area of Texas that should not be missed is the coastal region. Here, beach resorts and beautiful weather are king, and trips to this area are more like vacations in tropical paradise. One area that is full of perfect romantic resorts is Galveston Island, located in the south of Texas. This island is 32 miles long and a little over two miles wide, but it is filled with beaches and attractions that make most people who live here want to never return to the main land. Galveston contains not only 32 miles of beaches, but also one of the largest concentrations of Victorian architecture (intact) in the US.
A spot in Galveston to stay for your romantic destinations in Texas is The Mermaid and The Dolphin, a Tropical Garden Spa Resort. This property was once the governor of Texas's summer mansion, and is now a beautiful resort with eight guest rooms. All of the rooms are decorated individually with different themes and styles, and the beauty of the Victorian touches are evident throughout. All rooms/suites include a fireplace, private bath and Jacuzzi for two, as well as several other amenities that are sure to be appreciated.
Close to all the Galveston attractions, there is also a restaurant on site, as well as many amenities in your room including CD players, coffee service, and luxury bath and body products. The Mermaid and The Dolphin also offers many romantic packages to make your stay here even more special. For the ultimate in luxury and romance, the Wild at Hearth Night Fires (available in winter) package is for you. This treat includes a lambswool rug to lounge on (and keep) as well as champagne and toasting flutes you can also keep as souvenirs. Scented candles and a lit fireplace, along with a single red rose on the rug, complete this romantic picture.
Romantic destinations in Texas can mean much more than camping or exploring the wild, untamed west. Warm beach breezes and tropical gardens can also be the setting for your trip here, as well as many other romantic spots, making this state perfect for repeat visits.
