Hill Country?  I loved the Hyatt Hill Country Resort.  It was about $300 a night when I stayed there, but I had a friend who got $80 a night via Priceline!

Moody Gardens?

Or a cruise out of Galveston?

Fredricksburg, Greune, Bandera…

What type of atmosphere are you looking for?  Quiet and secluded or a town with lots to do?

I had never really been to Fredericksburg until we started talking having the wedding there.  They have lots of cute B&Bs, 9 vineyards that offer tastings, lots of cute shops and diners.  It is a short drive to San Antonio and Austin so you could go there for a day trip and eat lunch on the River Walk or drive to Austin for some live music.  Speaking of Live music, Lukenbach is about 20 minutes from Fredericksburg.  If you are into outdoors type stuff Enchanted Rock isn’t but a short drive from Fredericksburg.

Are you outdoorsy? You could go to big bend. Or if you’re looking for the ocean, there’s always South Padre Island.

I recently went to the 4 Seasons Resort and Spa in Irving, TX when my in-laws were in town.  I almost wanted to stay there myself!  It’s almost a get-a-way away from home where they have two tennis courts, 4 swimming pools (with 1 olympic sized pool inside), a sauna, gym, indoor basketball and raquetball court, and indoor track.  They also have a spa and amazing place to eat at which has won countless awards.  It’s a bit on the pricey side, but you may be able to stike a deal or two if you book it for the winter.

I don’t know a lot about Texas. I’ve been there several times but I just wanted to post that maybe you should look up where the best destination spas are. If you have 5 days or less, you may want to focus on relaxing & good food rather than sightseeing. Good luck in your search!

Trust me.  I got married and went to Hawaii on my honeymoon and wish that I would have spent more time relaxing rather than doing activities.  I think it made things a lot more stressful than they had to be when we could have just drank Mai Tai’s by Waikiki Beach.

If you want more resort ideas near the Hill Country, I really like the Hyatt Lost Pines (in Bastrop, just east of Austin) and the Marriott Horseshoe Bay (in Marble Falls, about an hour northwest of Austin). You could also go further south to Lost Maples National Park near the Frio River, where you can get some really unique and fairly inexpensive cabin rentals. If you’re going in December, the leaves might still be pretty since I’m sure fall will come to Texas late again this year 🙂

Go to Barton Creek Resort and Spa!  The spa is amazing and they’ll probably have incredible specials that time of year.  Its right outside of Austin so that is a great option too.

I second the Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop.  My sister went there for her 25th anniversary and LOVED it!  If your more of a country girl at heart, there’s a bed and breakfast in Smithville called 9E Ranch.  (That’s where my fiance proposed).  We stayed in a log cabin on a ranch with horses right outside our cabin.  Smithville is where the movie “Hope Floats” was filmed.  Another option would be Port Aransas.  It may be warmer down there in December and you can rent some fabulous houses right on the beach fairly inexpensively.

Congrats!!

Fort Davis, Marfa, Alpine area can be really pretty and remote. Hill country has tons of good B&B’s/Spa type places. When we’ve looked at Fredericksburg for nice places to stay, Angel’s Lodge over the Creek has always been our preference. (: If you google the name, the website comes up.
