Contrary to popular belief, romance in Texas isn't just limited to high-rise hotels and grapes on winery vines. The Lone Star State has scenic adventures and secluded hideaways for lovebirds of every wing, regardless of where you are in the state.

So, whether you celebrate love on February 14 or all year round, here are some of the most romantic places to visit in the Lone Star State.

Destination Texas: Romantic Places to Visit in Texas

Whether you celebrate love on February 14 or all year round, here are some of the most romantic places to visit in the Lone Star State.

If you're an adventurous or unconventional couple, try including some iconic Texas bucket list items in your romantic weekend plans.

Activities like spray-painting your love's initials onto a Caddy hood at Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, or taking a spin on the Ferris wheel at Galveston's Pleasure Pier are sometimes more fun than a generic steak dinner. If you're more traditional, take up Texas' national pastime of honky-tonkin' and visit well-known dancehalls and venues like Luckenbach Texas. ("Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love...")

Travel tip: many attractions, like the Grapevine Vintage Railroad and the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi, offer special events or tour packages that cater to couples and smaller groups.

If you're looking for somewhere a little more secluded, Texas knows how to do accommodations right.

Want all the creature comforts in a beautiful treetop setting? Check out Cypress Valley, where you can choose from several private treehouse yurts and cottages set in the branches of ancient Central Texas cypress trees.

What about stargazing? Hit up the Chinati Hot Springs resort in Terlingua to enjoy a more rustic resort experience and the medicinal powers of the Chihuahuan hot springs.
