Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get away with your significant other. But who says it has to be limited to one day? Celebrate romance and love anytime, anywhere in Texas. From weekend getaways and romantic dinners for two to fun date ideas, there’s plenty to see and do, so mix it up and create romantic, one-of-a-kind adventures.
Indulge and pamper yourselves at Rosewood Crescent Hotel, where you’ll experience elegance and luxury. Each room is beautifully decorated, offering you all the comforts you need. Try the Intimate Evening Daily Package for Two, which includes champagne or house wine, breakfast in the Conservatory or in your room, Chef’s select three-course dinner in the Crescent Club or in your room and access to the spa. The Night to Remember Package includes champagne or wine, breakfast for two, chocolate, spa basket and access to the spa. Rosewood Crescent Hotel is located in downtown Dallas.

The Spa at the Crescent is worlds apart from anything you’ve ever experienced. You’ll be treated to a variety of treatments in this opulent spa including massages, facials, baths and exfoliations that will leave you both feeling refreshed and invigorated. Try the Rosewood Escape Massage for Two (50 or 80 minutes), a candlelit massage with special aromatherapy. For more information, visit www.crescentcourt.com/spa.cfm.
Dinner for two? Ooh la la! St. Martin’s Wine Bistro is one of Dallas’s best-kept secrets, offering a cozy and romantic setting for your dinner date. This French-American restaurant has an upscale and sophisticated European feel that you won’t find anywhere else. Start your meals with hors d’oeuvres (appetizers) and potage (soup) before you move on to impressive entrees. From the filet, lamb and steaks to the seafood and chicken, you’ll be amazed at the delectable fare right in front of you. For dessert, share a tempting treat like chocolate terrine, crème brulee or white chocolate cheesecake. There’s live entertainment seven nights a week, and complimentary valet parking is available. For more information, visit www.stmartinswinebistro.com.
Take your love to new heights – literally – with a hot air balloon ride over Dallas. You can create your very own romantic balloon ride that takes place during sunrise – they say there’s nothing like it! A champagne flight, during which you’ll share a champagne toast, is another way to commemorate your hot air ballooning date. For more information, visit www.dallasballooning.com.
There’s nothing more romantic than spending an evening under the stars with your special someone. You could just grab a blanket and head out to your own backyard, but why not make it a special night out? The Noble Planetarium of the Fort Worth Museum will show you the stars (more than 70,000 to be exact!) and beyond. The Texas Sky Tonight…Live show will take you on a journey through the galaxy, exploring amazing parts of space you would never see! Another cool show is Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity, which explores the fascinating black holes – you’ll be pulled right in!

With all of these fantastic options (and many more just like them) available to you, why limit the amount of time you spend with your loved one? Appreciate love and make fond memories throughout February.
