There is that one person in everyone’s lives that never seems to get the credit for all the wonderful things they do, and oftentimes that one person is usually our spouse! He or she is in charge of remembering doctor’s appointments, the passwords on all the accounts, even the birthday of Aunt Ethel on your father’s side, being sure to remember that she loves the drugstore box of chocolate turtles that is sent every year. After the train wreck that was known as 2020, doesn’t your partner deserve a Valentine’s Day that outshines all the others that went before? This guide to the most romantic activities in Austin you can participate in during your unforgettable Austin getaway will only get better when you choose Austin Vacation Rentals for your luxury love nest!
Drive-in Movies Are Making a Comeback!
For many of the younger generation, the drive-in is something only seen in the movies, but they were popular once. For those of us who have personal memories of nights at the drive-in, their comeback is a great thing! The Blue Starlite Drive-in is an Austin example that we can’t get enough of, and we think it’s perfect for a night of romance, snacks, and fantasy. Offering three locations throughout Austin, the Blue Starlite bills itself as boutique drive-ins and only accepts from 15 to 40 cars a night, but if you are one of the lucky ones, you’ll fall in love all over again as you snack on popcorn and sodas, fiddle with the dials on your radio to ensure you have the optimum viewing experience, and perhaps take a step back into your history and steam up the windows more than a little!
Laughing in Love
New couples may not appreciate this bit of advice, but those who have been each other’s Valentines for more than a few months get it. If you can laugh together, you will stay together forever, so why not laugh in love together with a visit to the Capitol City Comedy Club! Located at 8120 Research Boulevard #100, this spot will have you laughing until your jaws ache and your ribs hurt as you take in the performances of comedians from all over the nation! Featuring local funny men and even funnier women, as well as some of your favorite big-time stars, their open mic nights are always a blast and if the love of your life considers himself a funny guy himself, this is the perfect opportunity to prove it to the world!
A Romance That Lasts With These Activities in Austin
After the final credits roll and the last laugh has been laughed, coming home to your Austin Vacation Rentals Valentine’s abode will help the romance last even longer. Reserve yours today!

Take a Ride on a Historic Steam Train
This year try something outside the normal scope of Valentine’s dates. Say goodbye to the same old restaurant dinner table every year and take your loved one on a day trip! Riding on a historic train is a truly remarkable experience. Not only do you get to ride in what is essentially a mobile time capsule, but you also get to enjoy the long ride, and all the sights on the way.

It’s a great way to put both relaxation and excitement into the same Valentine’s Day in Austin activity. This special event train ride runs 9:00am-3:00pm on Saturday, February 15th.
