The most romantic day of the year is right around the corner again! That’s right fellas, Valentine’s Day 2018 is here. Don’t panic. If you haven’t figured out what to do to celebrate, we’ve got PLENTY of date ideas your significant other is sure to love. The best part is: you can do ALL of these things right here in Boerne. We’ve got ideas from a high-end evening to a relaxed day-date, and each activity is paired with a restaurant suggestion or two. So there’s something in here for every couple out there. P.S. Mixing and matching is perfectly acceptable too!
Laid-Back & Casual
If you’re the couple who likes to lay low, these are the dates for you.
All of that should work up a pretty good appetite. Next, chow down on worldly cuisine and craft beer for lunch at the Dodging Duck Brewhaus, or stop into Boerne Epicure for delicious creations from their fresh deli! There’s plenty of tasty treats to shop for in there too!
Fun & Adventurous
These date ideas are more for the thrill-seeking couples!
Share a banana split at Sugar Shack (next-door to Soda Pops), or build your own frozen yogurt at Kelani Yogurt for a mid-day sweet treat. For dinner, get an authentic German meal from the Little Gretel Restaurant.
Rugged & Outdoorsy
Sometimes, the most romantic dates include the serene surroundings of Mother Nature herself. Get back to basics with these ideas!
This date will definitely work up your appetite, so we paired it with grub that’s sure to satisfy you! Burgers and beer from the Cibolo Creek Brewing Co. are the perfect pairing for a day spent outdoors. Some good ol’ Texas barbecue is always good for replenishment of expended energy (and the soul too, can I get an Amen?). If you haven’t already, check out Texas Meat Co. I hear their brisket tacos are super yummy! (wink-wink)
Chic & Romantic
This is your classic Valentine’s date. We’ve got just the itinerary for the more traditional folks!
Fine dining in Boerne is great because you get all the big city taste in the comfort of a small town. Not to mention the food portions at these establishments ensure you go home feeling stuffed! Weather dependent, opt for indoor or outdoor seating at Peggy’s On The Green, owned by Chef Mark Bohanan of Bohanan’s Prime Steak and Seafood in San Antonio, or The Creek Restaurant, known for their delightful rendition on Shrimp Tampico. The Cypress Grille has an excellent wine selection as well as delicious soups, salads and entrees. Valeria Ristorante Italiano brings the authentic tastes of Italy with fresh, local ingredients every time, and a wine paired especially for your meal.
We hope we didn’t leave you disappointed! As a disclaimer, remember that each of these restaurants and businesses have their own hours of operation, and not every date idea will necessarily work all in the same day. Pick a day to celebrate, look into all of your options, and make a Valentine’s date that is tailored just for you and your significant other!
