Soak Up the Sun at Topaz Adults-Only Pool
An infinity-style pool gives way to breathtaking vistas of Texas Hill Country at La Cantera’s adults-only pool. Take a dip or rent a luxurious cabana for ultimate privacy and relaxation. As you lay out, treat yourselves to a refreshing poolside cocktail, the perfect way to cheers a getaway together.
The San Antonio River Walk and Marriage Island
There’s nothing in downtown San Antonio as charming as a stroll down the River Walk. Meander hand-in-hand along the San Antonio River and pass by some of the city’s most popular sites. Peruse La Villita or Market Square. Turn up the romance on one of the many bridges. Or save your most intimate moments for Marriage Island. This heart-shaped islet is located in the San Antonio River and makes for a charming wedding or proposal location. If you’re not ready to take that plunge just yet it’s still a worthwhile stop for any afternoon.
Hill Country Winery Tour
Texas Hill Country is known as much for its rolling hills as it is for the wineries that abound there. Some of Texas’s most beloved wines are produced in the many small towns that make up the Hill Country. From Messina Hof Winery in Fredericksburg to Sister Creek Vineyards in Boerne, you’ll enjoy not only the wines but the Hill Country views and time spent together.
Hike or Picnic at Enchanted Rock
Situated just north of Fredricksburg, Enchanted Rock offers some of Hill Country’s most picturesque viewpoints. Enchanted Rock gets its name from the pink granite dome in the heart of the park. Scale the dome then look out over beautiful Central Texas. At the park, you can hike, picnic, geocache, and even stargaze (if you stay after dark). Be sure to get there early on the weekends as the park stops welcoming new visitors once they reach capacity.
Dinner at Signature Restaurant
Round out your day the romantic way with an intimate meal at Signature Restaurant. Chef Andrew Wiessman brings to the table his contemporary interpretation of classic dishes, exposing you to fresh flavors imbued with Texas spirit. Savor pheasant or sea scallops, beef tenderloin or lamb shank, alongside a signature cocktail or glass (or bottle!) of thoughtfully paired wine.
Treat yourselves to a cozy night out at San Antonio’s oldest theater. The Majestic Theater lives up to its name through its inspiring Spanish Mediterranean style and old world detailing. Built in 1929, the Majestic Theater is also a National Historic Landmark. Broadway shows and a wide variety of concerts and performing arts events take the stage at this theater.
Cave Without a Name
Situated northeast of Boerne, Cave Without a Name is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful caves in Texas. Though you can witness the otherworldy rock formations during the day, the cave also hosts various musical events. Attend a concert in the Cave Throne Room and you might ruin yourselves for any other live music venue.
