Need a weekend away with your significant other?

Whether you live in the Lone Star State or not, there’s countless options for romantic getaways in Texas. While the state may be huge, choosing a Valentines destination doesn’t have to be overwhelming. A weekend retreat deep in the heart of Texas in Dripping Springs is sure to spark romance, adventure and relaxation.

Whether you’re travelling out of town from Austin, San Antonio or Houston, or just looking for a staycation, here’s some inspiration for your trip for two in Dripping Springs.

FInd the Best Lodging in Dripping Springs

Enjoy a cocktail in Dripping Springs

Visit Deep Eddy Vodka and sip on one of their many delicious concoctions made with flavored vodkas or head to the upscale and adult-only cocktail lab at Treaty Oak Distilling. Enjoy classic cocktails and modern flair at Grawlix Cocktail Lounge, located within a revitalized warehouse in downtown Dripping Springs.


Pack a romantic picnic

Enjoy a classic picnic at one of the area parks like Pedernales Falls State Park. Bring a comfortable blanket and a basket filled with delectable treats – like fresh fruits and cheeses – and enjoy the shade of the Cypress trees next to the turquoise waters of the Pedernales river. For your picnic pleasure, stop by the local cheese and wine shop, Epicure for a myriad of charcuterie accoutrement. Enjoy the picnic until dark and turn the evening into a dreamy stargazing date.

Walk to the waterfall at Hamilton Pool

Waterfalls are synonymous with romance and this one is no exception. Stroll hand in hand down the ¼ mile path towards the pool and enjoy the peaceful serenity of the Texas Hill Country’s most pristine biome. Capture the moment in time by snapping a selfie framed by the grotto and waterfall in the background. Make sure to make your reservation to Hamilton Pool Preserve online before you set out on your romantic date.

A Cozy Stroll through Historic Downtown

This old-fashioned date idea will make time move slowly, allowing you to make the most of your afternoon. Strolling arm-in-arm is the perfect way to take in the historic architecture and allows for plenty of time to peruse Dripping Springs’ local boutiques and antique shops. This idea is great for lovers who can appreciate the little things in life.

Enjoy a Couples Spa Experience

It's not a true romantic getaway without a little pampering, and a couples spa experience will surely bring you closer together. Treat you and your partner to a personal couples spa experience like massage or facial (or both!) at Serasana Spa or Face-to-Face Spa.

Sunset at a Vineyard

There is nothing more romantic than watching a sunset – and enjoying a glass of wine while the sun puts on its colorful display is one of the most romantic ways to savor your glass (or bottle!). For optimum sunset viewing, watch the action from Driftwood Estate Winery. Sit on a lawn chair above the vineyard and hold hands as you watch the sun go down for a delightfully romantic date.



True romantics know that fine dining is a must.

  • Complete with candles, dim lighting and a white tablecloth, the interior of Tillie’s at Camp Lucy, a 200-year old Vietnamese building, was surely designed with lovebirds in mind.
  • Le Vacher, the newest upscale restaurant in town focuses on cuisine inspired by French technique and artfully prepared local ingredients. The scenic Dripping Springs landscape, a familial tie-that-binds, creates the perfect backdrop for an evening of fantastic food and revelry.
  • Wine and dine at Trattoria Lisina, a restaurant with an extensive wine list known for its impeccable Italian dishes and gorgeous Tuscan-style dining room.
