Each year, as January draws to a close, it’s time to start thinking about your Valentine’s Day plans. Although it’s traditional to celebrate the holiday with a romantic partner, plenty of people spend it with friends or family instead, and you can enjoy it in a variety of ways. If you live near Houston, Texas, consider getting away from it all in nearby Tomball. There are plenty of things to do on Valentine’s Day in this picturesque all-American town, which already lends itself well to fun and unique bonding experiences.
Whether you’d like to dress your plans up or down, here are some local ideas for making the occasion special this year:
- Romantic restaurants. Taking your significant other out for a romantic meal is a time-honored Valentine’s Day tradition, and there are plenty of ambience-rich restaurants to try. The most romantic restaurants will get booked up quickly, so don’t forget to make reservations well in advance!
- Wine tasting. If you feel your relationship has aged like a fine wine (or has the potential to), consider planning a wine tasting at one of the vineyards or wine bars in the area. Top local venues include Wild Stallion Vineyards, Gadela Winery, the Thirsty Bee Meadery, and The Empty Glass.
- Drive-in theater. For a less traditional but equally cozy option with high nostalgia value, get tickets to see a movie at the Showboat Drive-In Theater in nearby Hockley. Consider bringing a portable radio so you can turn off your engine and your car radio (which can drain the car battery if left on independently of the engine).
- Local concerts. Take your friend, family member, or partner to see a local show by an artist or tribute artist they love. For the best experience, be sure to choose a small, intimate venue where you can enjoy a good view of the performers, table service, and hassle-free parking. Where can you find such a gem, you ask? Look no further than Main Street Crossing.
