Looking for some inspiration this Valentine’s Day? We’ve gathered a list of Austin activities to help you impress your date ❤️
Whether celebrating with that special someone, or revelling in the single life with friends, we’ve got some ideas to help you have a day to remember !
Capture a Moment
Travel to one of Austin’s many Insta-worthy murals to share your love with the world! While the famed “I Love You So Much” mural instantly comes to mind, some of our other on-theme favorties include “You’re My Butter Half“, “Til Death Do Us Part“, “Puppy Love” and “Sweet! You’re Here”
Enjoy some live music
Live music can be found all over Austin, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Dance the night away on Rainey St. , celebrate local artists while you jam or spend a romantic evening taking in a concert at Moody Theater.
Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition! Show off your gaming skills at an arcade bar, race to the finish in go-karts, practice your backhand with a classic game of ping-pong or get medieval with a friendly round of axe-throwing (and remember: win or lose, it’s about having fun!).
Let your inner artist shine through at these craft studios. Whether it’s making the perfect Galentine’s gift or enjoying a cocktail while you craft you and your date can make memories as well as keepsakes.
Keep It Simple
Nothing wrong with the classics – dinner and a movie doesn’t have to be boring with Austin’s long list of fantastic restaurants and home-grown theaters like Alamo Drafthouse , Violet Crown or the Blue Starlite Drive-In.
Several restaurants are featuring Valentine’s Day specials and prix fixe menus – some of our favorites include Sway – a modern Thai restaurant with 3 Austin locations (each with unique Valentine’s Day specials), the Peached Tortilla (or their sister restaurant Bar Peached) offering a unique menu of Southern comfort food with an Asian twist, Juniper for a classic and romantic Italian meal, or Las Palomas for a West Austin family-owned restaurant with Mexican cuisine inspired by multiple regions of Mexico.
We hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy your weekend in our beautiful hometown!
