In search of ideas for a romantic weekend in Austin? There are many things to do with your loved one to enjoy an intimate night or weekend out. Send flowers, give a card or buy their favorite dessert to show your loved one how much you care. Sometimes, you want to do something a little different to add a little spice to the relationship. Austin has some great things to offer couples who want to enjoy a nice romantic weekend in the city.
Here are a few romantic ideas for couples to do in Austin:
Rent a Swan Shaped Paddle Boat – this is something you only see in the movies but it’s about to be a part of your romantic escape. Capital Cruises rents swan-shaped pedal boats at Lady Bird Lake by the hour.
Experience the Wet and Draft at Deep Eddy – a wet swim and draft beer awaits the fun-loving couple at Deep Eddy. Go for a relaxing swim at the historic, spring-fed Deep Eddy Pool, and then take a brief walk up the hill to Deep Eddy Cabaret. The tiny bar has one of the best jukeboxes in town and the friendliest regulars.
A Romantic Night at the Driskill – the glamorous old hotel oozes romance, from its marble staircases to its crystal chandeliers. It’s also home to an upscale restaurant and one of the best bars in Austin. At the second-floor bar, you can cozy up on one of the leather love seats and listen to the piano player.
Dinner at Mattie’s – Mattie’s is the new restaurant in the beautifully preserved house that was once home to author John Henry Faulk. Peacocks roam the grounds amid ancient oak trees. The menu is a mix of comfort food (Mattie’s fried chicken) and fancier fare such as the Akaushi ribeye.
Enjoy an Intimate Picnic on Mount Bonnell – One of the highest points in Austin, Mount Bonnell offers a stunning view of the entire city. Although you may not be entirely alone, the viewing area is big enough for the two of you to find a cozy little space for two.
