Find fresh takes on romantic getaways (and free stuff) when you visit these four cities and their Valencia Group resorts this Valentine’s Day.

Culture and Nightlife [Houston, TX]

Houston is a hot destination for couples who love culture in all its forms, as the sprawling city is home to 19 well-regarded institutions devoted to art, science, and history, plus plenty of upscale dance clubs.

Best for: Cultured night owls.

Your Stay

If you’re looking to pamper yourself without fighting Houston traffic, the special Benvenuti package at Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE keeps you right in the shopping and dining paradise that is CITYCENTRE, with a valet arrival, two free drinks at the Milano bar on property, and a $100 gift card to the supremely upscale Radio Milano restaurant.

Eat and Escape [Silicon Valley, CA]

We’re not saying you have to hold hands and stroll through the winding trails of Almaden Quicksilver Park, but we are suggesting you eat there together. La Foret Restaurant has a reputation for incredible foie gras, and you can gaze out into the wooded preserve as the sun sets and, yes, walk off that rich dinner on quiet trails together.
Best for: Nature enthusiasts, food buffs.

Your Stay

Back at Hotel Valencia Santana Row, you’ll find a Romantic Rendezvous that features sparkling wine and chocolates in your suite, two complimentary drinks at sleek Vbar, and breakfast at San Jose’s Citrus restaurant.

Shop and Stroll [San Antonio, TX]

River Walk is the ideal place for couples looking to leave San Antonio with arms full of shopping bags. You can walk all day and evening along this five-mile riverside path, catching live music and stopping at cafés in between hitting the famous La Villita Historic Arts Village and boutique shops, and still not see every attraction the walk has to offer.
Best for Tireless shoppers.

Your Stay

Hotel Valencia Riverwalk’s Valentine’s Day package means a free bottle of champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, a romantic rose-petal turndown, and the luxury accommodations you expect.


Songs in the South [Austin, TX]

There’s a reason they call Austin the “Live Music Capital of the World,” and it makes for a unique romantic getaway for those passionate about their favorite genres. On any given days, couples can find outdoor concerts, jam-packed venues that cater to big-name acts, and local bars and restaurants, like Mohawk that features live musicians, plus dozens of small theaters.
Best for: Musical duos.

Your Stay

At Lone Star Court, you’ll book your S’More Love package and arrive at your room to find all the ingredients you need for s’mores over a fire, plus complimentary drinks at The Water Trough and more.
