The six most romantic places in San Antonio

The six most romantic places in San Antonio

We’ve put together a guide to the most romantic spots in San Antonio for you and your sweetheart to visit this year.

San Antonio Botanical Gardens

The San Antonio Botanical Gardens are truly a sight to behold. The garden is an extraordinary 33-acre facility, which features plants from around the world. There are rare flowers from desert regions and tropical rainforests, some of which are housed in their individual, climate-controlled glass environments. Why buy a single bouquet when you can share a world of flowers with someone you love? Once you've looked at the flowers, you can cuddle up on a bench in the birdwatch structure that attracts our feathered friends year-round.

Spa visit

Treat yourself and your loved one with a relaxing spa treatment this year. The Mokara Spa San Antonio has been honored as one of the best spas in the city. It offers a complete menu of body, facial, and salon treatments. Try the “Spa for Him” and “Spa for Her” packages (which include lunch at the Mokara Rooftop) and let the stress just melt away. Make this Valentine’s Day a spa day and book your reservation today.

River walk

The San Antonio River Walk was ranked as the #1 river walk in the United States. Delight your valentine as you explore numerous restaurants and cafes along the Paseo del Rio. Or you can make it a night to remember by visiting a local nightspot to listen to a mariachi band or other live music.

Carriage ride

Carriage rides aren’t just for Christmas! Bluebonnet Carriage Co. will help you turn this Valentine’s Day into a cherished memory that will last a lifetime. The company currently has some Valentine’s specials you can purchase. But hurry—Reservations are sure to fill up before the big day.

Tower of the Americas

The Tower of the Americas offers the best view in San Antonio along with a wonderful fine-dining experience at the Chart House. Enjoy the mesmerizing views of the city from the Flags Over Texas Observation Deck, then chow down with a romantic dinner for two at the Chart House Restaurant. For an extra decadent treat, share the Original Hot Chocolate Lava Cake. Yum!

Japanese Tea Garden

If the hustle and bustle of the city doesn’t appeal to you, find a quiet spot in the Japanese Tea Gardens and enjoy a cozy date this Valentine’s. Enjoy the floral displays as you explore the waterfall and koi pond.
