Dallas, Texas is the perfect place for couples to experience a romantic vacation together.

With its restaurants, nightclubs, theaters, museums and other attractions, Dallas, Texas is the perfect place to spend a romantic weekend getaway, honeymoon, or anniversary vacation.

For daytime fun, try visiting the Dallas Museum of Art, where couples can enjoy perusing the exotic European, African, Asian and Ancient Mediterranean collections. Or, if you and your sweetheart are nature lovers, visit the Dallas Arboretum. It is particularly beautiful in the Spring, when its hundreds of azaleas are in bloom.

If your guy is a baseball fan, take him to the Ameriquest Field in nearby Arlington. Splurge and purchase box seats for more privacy, or buy regular tickets and join the other Texas Rangers fans. While you're in Arlington, be sure to visit Six Flags Over Texas. Hold onto each other while riding world-famous roller coasters like Runaway Mountain and the Texas Giant, and munch on goodies like funnel cakes and kettle corn.



The most important part of eating out with your significant other is choosing the right restaurant. One impressive place to take a date is Bob's Steak & Chophouse in Oak Lawn. Its succulent seafood and well-seasoned steaks are favorites among both local and global celebrities. Thinking Mediterranean? Try The Grape. Located in the lower Greenville area of Dallas, this small, dimly lit restaurant is the perfect place to make memories happen. Their wine list is also worth mentioning; it's one of the best in the city.

Ready to dance? Visit Deep Ellum. This rock-n-roll area of Dallas is teeming with clubs, hotspots, live bands, lounges, dance clubs and more. Play pool while listening to the blues at The Bone, or, if the two of you prefer the heavier stuff, head over to the Gypsy Tea Room, Trees or Club Dada. Several Dallas clubs have rooftop bars and dance floors, or large backyard-style patios.

Another great place for couples to experience an evening out on the town is the West End. The West End is filled with restaurants, comedy clubs, dance clubs and even an indoor shopping mall. Hail one of the many available horse-drawn carriages in the area and take a romantic ride through one of the most lively areas of Dallas.

If live theater is your thing, visit the Dallas Theater Center. They put on a variety of live shows each season. Throw on your heels, tuck in your shirt, and pick the one that's right for you. Another top theater to consider is The Arena Theater located at Richland College. Home to the Classical Acting Company, an award-winning Dallas theater group, this theater's smaller black box setting is the perfect place for you and your loved one to make an escape, real or imagined.

Many couples plan elaborate vacations only to find that they spend most of their time at the hotel. Choose the hotel that's right for you. Consider the Hotel St. Germain, with its historical ambience and built-in restaurant, parlors and library. For a more modern experience in luxury, book a room at The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre, near Galleria Dallas, or consider the deluxe Crescent Court.
