When it comes to Texans and Valentine’s Day, we sure know how to two-step our way right through the most romantic cities in the Lone Star State.

From downright amazing sunsets to phenomenal food, Texas sets the scene for some of the most romantic spots around.

Here are our top four most romantic cities and getaways in Texas:

The Most Romantic City in Texas

Voted the most romantic city in the U.S., San Antonio combines the essence of Texas culture and history with the excitement and romance of riverside nightlife. Home to some of the best Tex-Mex cuisine and fine dining in the state, this city is a top pick for the most romantic city in Texas. Plus, where else on this side of the Atlantic Ocean can you serenade your sweetheart in a gondola?

The Rose Capital of the World 

Tyler is the bee’s knees when it comes to the iconic Valentine’s gift of a rose. Set the scene for a romantic night out with lush gardens of exotic flowers, flower shops on every corner, and some delicious local cuisine you can’t get anywhere else.

The Bed and Breakfast Capital of Texas

Step back in time to an era of horse-drawn carriages and relaxing riverboat trips in Jefferson, Texas, a historic East Texas town with bed and breakfast inns galore. Book a romantic stay at any of the bungalow, cottage, or lodge-style B&Bs in the area, and take advantage of all this historic city has to offer.

Historic Stockyards of Fort Worth

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a trip to historic Fort Worth. Bask in the glow of the neon moon in the Stockyards, slow dance the night away at Billy Bob’s Texas, and end your evening with one of the best Southern-style meals you can get your hands on at Riscky’s Barbeque on Exchange. If that doesn’t spell love, we don’t know what will.
