My Texas Valentine: 3 Road Trip Getaways That Will Score You BIG Points!
Well, here we are. A smidge over a month away from our favorite Hallmark Holiday... And even if you've got the coolest, most laid-back, and easy-going significant other--you're not gonna wanna mess this up. Because regardless of what they say-they DO want you to think of them and make a fuss over them on Valentine's Day. So-having said that; instead of taking the easy way out and spending money on some chocolates and flowers and a dinner out... Go the extra mile-or MILES--and plan a romantic getaway for the two of you. When was the last time Grandma and Grandpa watched the kiddos for a weekend and you both got out of town and reconnected as a couple? Here are some ideas to keep in mind and check out--BUT DON'T WAIT. These places book fast for holidays like this one. So if you wait until February 13th to try to get a room-you'll be out of luck. That's why we're here to remind you NOW!
Anyone who's from Texas, or who has lived here for at least a year understands that driving 5 hours to get somewhere is pretty standard when it comes to road trips. Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, Texas is absolutely beautiful with amazing accommodations, tons of wine and wine sampling, and a great restaurant right nearby called Tillies.

HILL COUNTRY RESORT AND SPA
My wife and I took a vacation to San Antonio last summer and loved every minute of it. What's more romantic than the Riverwalk and a boat ride? Well--the accommodations and dining at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, of course. Elegance at its finest and it's also a 5-hour drive from Midland-Odessa.
A little closer at a four hour and twenty-minute drive from Midland-Odessa-Paniolo Ranch in Boerne Texas offers an amazing Bed and Breakfast with different guest houses to choose from, depending on you and your significant other's style. Check out the video and if you visit the website, choose "Bed and Breakfast" then "See All Rooms" to look at them all.
There you have it. We hope this gives you some food for thought, and far enough in advance to make those reservations NOW so that you're not doing the typical "Man-Thing" and waiting till the last minute. Have a great Valentine's Day--you're welcome!
