1. Wake Up With a Breakfast Date
From breakfast tacos to buttermilk pancakes, romance is best served sunnyside-up with a cup of strong coffee. Head to a breakfast date with your sweetheart at one of our favorite local morning spots! From the Dienger Trading Co to Electric Coffee, you can’t go wrong in Boerne.
2. Stare at the Stars
Is there anything more romantic than night sky full of stars? We don’t think so (and neither does Boerne!). This town takes its stargazing seriously, enforcing outdoor lighting ordinances to minimize light pollution and maximize the cosmic landscape. The stars at night are truly big and bright here in the heart of Texas! Check out local weather and stargazing conditions here, and head out post-sunset with your loved one and a few cozy blankets.
3. Head Deep Into the Heart of the Hill Country
Are you and your honey the adventuring type? Claustrophobia aside, consider heading deep into the heart of the Hill Country with an underground cavern tour! Boerne is the proud home of Cave Without A Name and Cascade Caverns, two equally wonderful and expansive looks into the gorgeous geology that lies below the surface.

4. Head to Cibolo Nature Center
Practically designed to make nature-lovers swoon, the Cibolo Nature Center is the perfect peaceful spot to head for a picnic or a stroll.
5. Head Out on a Horse
Is anything more classically romantic than horseback riding? Enjoy the sweeping Hill Country landscape from a uniquely equine vantage point with a local stable. We love Flying L Hill Country Resort, Diamond C Stables, and Stricker Trail Rides!
6. Relax at a Yoga Class
Hear us out: if you’ve never experienced the relaxing power of a yoga class, Valentine’s Day might be the time to treat yourself. Take a deep breath, grab your significant other, and head to a class at one of our local studios. The Yoga House offers everything from “Gentle Yoga” to “Hot Yoga Flow”, and Aerial Yoga Boerne gives you the opportunity to try out those Cirque-du- Soleil-reminiscent silks!

7. Sip the Hill Country’s Best
For a small town, Boerne boasts an impressive amount of top-notch wineries and breweries. Craft-beer-lovers will love Boerne Brewery, Cibolo Creek Brewery, and Kinematic Brewing Company, while wannabe-sommeliers can enjoy the varietals from Bending Branch Winery, Boerne Wine Company, and Boerne Cork & Keg.
8. Experience Resort Life
Providing the ultimate Boerne staycation, Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort offers couples the perfect chance to “get away”...whether for dinner or the whole night! Grab a reservation for dinner or indulge in a “romance package.” There’s a reason TripAdvisor recently ranked the Tapatio as one of the "Top 10 Romantic Resorts in Texas"!

10. Smell the Roses
If a simple gesture is more your speed (or the calendar won't allow for a lavish date night), show your affection with a spray of floral goodness from the creative group Fresh Urban Flowers!
11. Indulge Your Sweet Tooth
12. Head to Boerne Market Days
Once a month, Boerne’s favorite market sets up shop in the Main Plaza, offering everything from artisan leather goods to textiles and vintage clothes. Peruse the booths with your loved one, and stroll the Hill Country Mile when you’re through!
We think we’ve made our case: Boerne is about as swoon-worthy as it gets. Head to one of these unique dates and celebrate the fullest joys of Hill Country life with the one you love!
