Romantic weekend getaways in Texas for couples are all about historic sites like the world-famous Alamo, followed by a cruise down the canal in San Antonio and a trip to the NASA Space Center.
Live the cowboy dream in Dallas, or discover the city's vast 68 acre Arts District which has a wealth of unique museums. The sombre Kennedy Memorial is another must-see attraction. If you can believe it, the nearby city of Fort Worth has even more Wild West flair. The city gained notoriety during the 19th century when it was an important base for cattle drives. Learn more at its fascinating Cowgirl Museum. Don't leave without a trip to one or two of the impressive contemporary art galleries in town.
Alternatively, experience the flower-lined River Walk in San Antonio, a city that is heritage packed and reminiscent of Venice, with its canals. There's no reason not to sail off into the Texan sunset on a relaxing Rio San Antonio River Cruise. After that, quench your thirst with a reviving craft brew in the up-and-coming Pearl District.
