@jb0704:  What kind of things do you like to do??  That would help give some suggestions… and what part of Texas are you in?

I suggest Fredericksburg, but I’m partial, I live here! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great hiking at Enchanted Rock, amazing bed & breakfasts, shopping, restaurants, wineries… It’s all great, but we don’t have much for water… Some b&b’s have pools or hot tubs but not like rivers or anything.

I would say if your looking for water type stuff then maybe more toward Gruene would be good, floating the river, cute b&b’s, live music, good restaurants… It’s got everything.

I love Fredericksburg and all the associated wineries as well, but if you’re looking for lay by the pool, I vote for South Padre. During the summer, I’ve found it to be a very chill place. The island is small and we like to rent a house/condo on the north end where it’s quieter. You could also stay at one of the resorts. It’s a beautiful place.

We went to Kemah because I had never been and just wanted to go somewhere. It was nice and a bit boring which is okay for a mini-moon. I got the room at a great rate and we ate, walked, and hung out at the pool. It was exactly what I needed.

That being said, I do love Fredericksburg. Glen Rose is nice and there is a resort style place up there. South Padre could be fun and I could tell you EXACTLY where to go for the best food or rooms. San Antonio is an easy one and always enjoyable. Maybe go to Austin and hang out around Barton Creek? And of course, if you wanna get a little fancy, Hotel ZaZa in Dallas could be a blast.

I love Fredricksburg too. If you are wanting a little different, East Texas has some great scenery with hiking and lakes and some super cute little B&Bs around.

Hmm… I live in Houston and I don’t think there’s TOO much to do here but I’m an outdoors girl so I would rather get out in the wine country or do some hiking around Austin! But if you live close to Fredricksburg then it sounds like you’re thinking about coming further east.

I’d say you should go to Galveston! You could spend a day doing touristy things in Houston – I would recommend walking around Hermann park (you could even rent boats to paddle around the lake at the park!), going to the butterfly exhibit at the Museum of Natural Science, going to the Museum of Fine Arts or the Menil Collection (which is free) if you’re into art museums, and go out for a romantic dinner in Houston. If you decide to come here I can give you some restaurant recommendations! But Houston is known for having the best food ๐Ÿ™‚

Hermann Park:

There are some verryyy nice hotels in Houston – I would say the best place to stay would be downtown (you could stay near the Astros stadium and walk to an Astros game!) or else stay at Hotel Zaza, which is right across the street from Hermann Park, definitely the prettiest part of the city. I’m pretty sure Hotel Zaza has a pool too, but if it doesn’t then I’m sure there’s a good hotel downtown that would have a pool. If you stay at Hotel Zaza in the Museum District, then it’s about a 15-minute walk to Rice Village, where there is a reallyyyy cute French cafe for breakfast, and a romantic restaurant where you could go to dinner. The walk to Rice Village is along the outside of Rice University, and it’s a path lined with oak trees:

Then you could spend your other two days in Galveston if you wanted to do some beachy things, like go for a swim or rent a cruiser bike to bike along the boardwalk. The Strand is the old town of Galveston – old historic buildings with lots of cute old-fashioned shops and some great restaurants. There’s lots of beaches around Galveston, including some that are less crowded if you’re more interested in the nature and want some privacy.

Anyways, hope that helps!

We went to Fredericksberg for our minimoon.  We rented a great little cabin a few miles out of town.  We loved it.
