With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, you’re probably already thinking of all the possible ways to celebrate. A candlelit dinner? A picnic? Even better, why not book a romantic getaway or staycation?
Plan your Valentine’s celebration with these suggestions for top romantic things to do in Dallas/Fort Worth.
A Romantic Getaway in Fort Worth
Stay for the weekend and make the most of what this city has to offer. Start at Sundance Square, Fort Worth’s leading dining, entertainment and shopping district. Catch a show at the Bass Performance Hall, listen to live jazz at a club, or make dinner reservations at one of the many restaurants.
For some added romance, stroll among the evergreens of the Japanese Garden or visit the exotic tropical plants of the Rain Forest Conservatory at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. If you’d rather stay in the downtown area, enjoy the tranquility of the Water Gardens, a series of raised and sunken pools designed by architect Philip Johnson.
Or you can bond over your love of art with a visit to the museums of the Fort Worth Cultural District. The Amon Carter Museum of American Art has an outstanding collection of works on the American West by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, as well as other artists. The Kimbell Art Museum displays a choice collection of works of art from the Antiquity, the Italian Renaissance, the ancient Americas and more. At the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, you’ll find post-World War II pieces from artists like Francis Bacon or Henry Moore.
Indulge Yourself and Your Loved One
How does a relaxing day with your sweetheart sound? Book a pampering session at the VSpa at the Hilton Anatole. The spa, part of the Verandah fitness club, offers a variety of services including manicures, facials, and aromatherapy and couples massages.
Book a Romantic Dinner
At Knife Dallas, a special dinner date starts with the intense flavor of a dry-aged steak and ends in front of the outdoor fireplace with a cozy drink or a cigar from the in-house humidor. The restaurant is part of the Highland Dallas Hotel.
A touch of French sophistication will make your meal at Rise Salon de Soufflé extra special. Both the Dallas and Fort Worth locations serve sweet and savory soufflés and other French specialties.
For a classic dinner combination that never grows old, order up some prime aged steaks and a bottle from Al Biernat’s upscale steakhouse exclusive wine list. Alternatively, enjoy a cocktail at the bar with food from the bar menu, like the mini Beef Wellingtons.
The panoramic views of the Dallas skyline at SER Steak and Spirits add an air of romance. Located on the 27th floor of the Hilton Anatole, SER offers a sophisticated dining experience whether it’s a steak from the mesquite grill or a chef’s signature dish.
Enjoy a Picnic at Klyde Warren Park
A picnic can be a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Klyde Warren Park, an urban green space in the Dallas Arts District, is easy to get to. Pick a place on the lawn to stretch out your blanket or grab one of the tables to enjoy this green oasis.
