Love is in the air in League City during your February getaway
Valentine's Day provides the perfect excuse for a romantic getaway, and you don't have to travel far for those vacation vibes.
League City is just 30 miles southeast of Houston and sits on Clear Lake — the country's third-largest boating destination — providing miles of waterfront dining, entertainment, and activities.
Plan a February escape with these itinerary ideas:
Wine and romance
Spend Valentine’s Day day or the whole weekend at South Shore Harbour Resort, known for its elegant design, chic marina-style pool, and proximity to South Shore Harbour Marina on Clear Lake.
Make sure you visit extends through February 16 when the resort is hosting its monthly wine dinner, this time themed around romance and featuring pours from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. The four-course feast will feature four wine pairings plus live entertainment. For reservations, contact 281-334-1000, ext. 2022, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking of date-night meals: Take advantage of Clear Lake's shores and the eateries that serve up views with their entrees by bookmarking this list of waterfront restaurants.
You spot Opus Bistro & Steakhouse, which sits just above the pool at South Shore Harbour Resort and overlooks the marina. Sample plates of lobster risotto, chicken fried veal, or Cajun shrimp and grits in an elegant setting.
Also on the list is Sundance Grille II, nestled among the sailboats and trees in Waterford Harbor Marina and accessible by car or boat. Dine on seafood such as crab cakes topped with choron sauce or shrimp Bimini. On Sundays, nurse a mimosa or two and enjoy their well-loved champagne brunch from 10 am-3 pm.
Other great date night options include Main Street Bistro in the Historic District, Craft 96 for craft beer fans, and Red River BBQ and Red River Cantina.
Love by the pound
A sweet tooth can't be confined to dessert, so start your day by sharing the famous 5 lb. cinnamon roll at Bonnie's Donuts.
This epic breakfast does require 24-hour notice to be made, and if any of the other artfully decorated, colorfully customized creations catch your eye for V-Day, make sure to order with at least two day's notice.
Relax and rejuvenate
Feeling the need to take it easy after all that delicious food? League City's got you covered with these suggestions.
Charter a sunset cruise to enjoy not only beautiful views, but also possibly spot some frolicking dolphins.
Explore local boutiques stocked with one-of-a-kind finds. The number – 24! – of local shops on Main Street and League City’s Historic District are surprising and offer a delightful way to spend the day. Plan your perfect shopping trip with this guide.
Say "aaaah" with a couples massage or equally pampering treatment like a facial or body wrap at a variety of area spas.
Say "I do"
Of course, the most memorable way to express your love in League City is by getting married — elopement-style.
The picture-perfect wedding venue Butler's Courtyard has brought back its Valentine's Day Elopement Extravaganza, where for only $150 couples will receive a wedding ceremony, licensed wedding officiant, professional wedding photographer, and a personal wedding cake to-go, all in 15 minutes.
