The Best Romantic Getaways in Texas Hill Country

Not sure where you might go and what you might do during your escape into this beautiful part of Texas? Below are some of the best romantic getaways in Texas Hill Country. 

Fredericksburg: A Romantic Oasis

Fredericksburg is an adorable, quaint, historic German town that is the perfect setting for a couple’s escape. 

The town’s Main Street is adorned with boutique shops, art galleries, and delectable eateries. We highly recommend arriving early enough on your first day to browse the galleries and shops, visit one of the Main Street tasting rooms, and have a relaxed dinner for two at Hill and Vine

Start day two with a stroll through the gorgeous Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. Hike to the summit to watch the sunrise and enjoy a perfect backdrop for sipping your morning coffee and enjoying a quiet moment. After hiking back down, enjoy eggs Benedict, French toast, and a Bloody Mary at the adorable Sunset Grill back in town. 

The afternoon can be spent exploring one of Fredericksburg’s museums such as the Pioneer Museum or the National Museum of the Pacific War. Lastly, you’ll want to finish off this wonderful day with a delicious dinner at Cabernet Grill

Vineyards are a romantic option in Texas Hill Country

Wine Tasting in the Texas Hill Country

The Texas Hill Country is home to a burgeoning wine industry, with numerous vineyards and wineries dotting the landscape. One of the best romantic getaways in Texas Hill Country? A trip exploring these vineyards and wineries.

Spend a romantic day exploring the local wine trail, discovering award-winning vintages and scenic views along the way. Places like Becker Vineyards and Grape Creek Vineyards offer not only exquisite wines but also charming tasting rooms and picturesque settings for a romantic escape.

Gruene: An Historic Gem

Another cute historic town, Gruene exudes a unique charm that transports visitors to a bygone era. This makes it one of the best spots for romantic getaways in Texas Hill Country.

Chat over a delicious cup of joe at the Gruene Coffee Haus before setting out to explore the quaint streets of the Gruene Historic District, taking in all the sights and sounds of the bustling area as you wind your way through the quaint shops. Stop to browse the Gruene Antique Company and make sure to shop around at the nearly 100-year-old Gruene General Store

When dinner time rolls around, head to Grist Mill for some incredible food. You’ll love dining in the old cotton gin, and the view of the Guadalupe River really can’t be beaten. 

Finally, we highly recommend finishing your day in Gruene by visiting Gruene Hall. This 1878 dance hall is the oldest in Texas and hosts live music performances every night of the week. 

Natural Wonders

Looking for even more romantic getaways in Texas Hill Country? Why not turn to Mother Nature? 

Immerse yourselves in the natural wonders of the Texas Hill Country by visiting the aforementioned Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, Pedernales Falls State Park, or Lost Maples State Natural Area. Hike through scenic trails, admire cascading waterfalls, and revel in the beauty of the great outdoors. 

For couples who crave a serene lakeside experience, the Texas Hill Country also boasts several stunning lakes. Enjoy a romantic boat cruise on Lake Buchanan, indulge in water activities at Lake Travis, or simply unwind on the shores of Canyon Lake, soaking in the tranquility of the surroundings.

Where to Stay During Your Romantic Getaway

There is plenty to see and do while enjoying romantic getaways in Texas Hill Country, but where should you go to rest when the day is done? 

In our opinion, the most romantic option has to be glamping.
