Some people write-off Valentine’s Day as an excuse to buy chocolate or eat out for dinner. At Sterling Realtors, we say that Valentine’s Day is all about sparking your romance—so take it seriously! And what better way to spark romance than with a romantic getaway? A getaway, perhaps, to a luxurious condo with plush beds, inviting dining rooms, and expansive beaches? A getaway, perhaps, to Galveston Island, Texas?
Valentine’s Day is a flexible holiday—unlike Thanksgiving, where you need mastery of your own kitchen to really enjoy yourself, Valentine’s Day can be celebrated virtually anywhere. In fact, Valentine’s Day might be the best holiday to take on the road—bloggers, journalists, and poets from way back when have all commented on how the delight of travel and the spark of new experiences bring people together, whether they are honeymooners or long-term couples. The area had everything you need for a great romantic experience, so why not come take part in some of Galveston, TX’s Valentine’s Day celebrations?
The City’s Best
Galveston, TX is a Valentine’s Day haven – whatever you need for Valentine’s Day, you can find it here. Flowers, naturally, are a must.

Knapp Flower Shop and Island Flowers are other award-winning florists whose tremendous displays of beauty will kick your Valentine’s Day up a gear.
