Galveston for Valentine’s Day

Galveston, Texas is a tiny town that’s great for a romantic getaway. From dinner cruises to candy shops, everything you need to enjoy a beautiful Valentine’s Day is here in Galveston—just bring your love and the loving!

Galveston: Romance by the Sea

There’s plenty to be said about Galveston’s romantic appeal—all of it good! Being situated by the ocean, taking a walk down Seawall Boulevard is a great way to take it easy and enjoy the sights of the eternally rolling waves. Or, visit quaint downtown Galveston—as one of the oldest cities in Texas, downtown still exudes a historic charm not easily found elsewhere. This little island in the corner of Texas makes for a great romantic retreat thanks to the small-town, leisurely feel of each city block.

All the Valentine’s Accessories

Every Valentine’s Day needs something a little special—grab a bouquet from Downtown Blooms while you’re in the area, or pick something up from Knapp Flower Shop, the award-winning floral boutique with over 90 years of experience! Then, indulge with some sinful food from La King’s Confectionery (if you’re in the north side of the island) or Ben & Jerry’s (on Seawall Boulevard).

Special Valentine’s Events in Galveston

For something extra special, experience something you can only find in Galveston, only on Valentine’s Day! Moody Gardens is hosting a special dinner in the Aquarium Pyramid. This goes far beyond the simple pleasure of not having to cook or clean—imagine enjoying a specially-prepared three-course meal while underneath a gorgeous aquatic ecosystem. Watch the fishes float by as you await your dinner and reminisce about your history as a couple.

If an underwater dining experience doesn’t suit you, how about an on-the-water one? Special Valentine’s dinner cruises are available from charters like the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat. Drift lazily along the bayou in a paddlewheel boat replete with rustic charm, delicious food, and dancing.
