5 Reasons to Spend Valentine’s Day in Bay Area Houston

Looking for date night ideas for Valentine’s Day? Here are a few reasons to spend Valentine’s Day with your loved ones in Bay Area Houston.  

Sunset Cruises 

Enjoy the wind, waves, and sunshine as you sail away on a romantic sunset cruise with Sunrise Sunset Adventures. Drift out to peaceful Galveston Bay, where the seas are calm and you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a gorgeous sunset. Or indulge yourself in a two-to-four hour cruise with Sailaway Clear Lake Charters. Bring your own food and drinks for a romantic meal on the water. Find more sailing and water recreation options through Bay Area Houston’s On the Water Guide.  

Spas and Massages 

Take relaxation to the next level at spas and resorts meant to leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated. Just a short walk from the South Shore Harbour Resort, the Bella Vita Day Spa specializes in couples massages, deep tissue massages, Swedish massages, and hot stone massages, along with skincare facials, nail care, waxing, and eyebrow/eyelash extensions.  

Fancy Dinners 

Toast to your beloved at Opus Bistro & Steakhouse, a waterfront dining experience with the freshest of seafood dishes, like walnut crusted snapper and Cajun shrimp and grits. Spice things up with Merlion’s Valentine’s Day Menu, a three-course meal of flavorful Thai cuisine. Don’t miss a special Valentine’s Day Dinner on February 16 at South Shore Harbour Resort, complete with a four-course meal, live entertainment, and door prizes. Reserve your spot by calling (281) 334-1000 ext. 2022. 

Bakeries and Sweets 

You can’t complete Valentine’s Day without the sweets. Choose from bakeries and shops like Cupcake Cachet for delectable cupcake bouquets and dietary-friendly options, or Jenny’s Bakery, with their custom decorated cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. If you’re looking for something a little less traditional, stop by Seabrook Waffle Company for sweet and savory liege waffles layered with an assortment of toppings and ice cream. 

Bed & Breakfast by the Water 

Staycations or vacations, Bay Area Houston offers comfortable and relaxing accommodations. Book a stay in one of the adorable bed and breakfasts in the Bay Area for quick romantic getaways and early weekends. The Pelican’s Nest Bed & Breakfast is nestled in a quiet waterfront cove facing the Clear Lake Channel, and is within walking distance of local restaurants and minutes away from local attractions. Patrons rave about the sun room, a room with wall-to-wall glass windows that is the perfect place to settle back and soak in the rays.
