San Marcos Like a Local

San Marcos Sweethearts

February 2, 2017

February, the month of love, is officially in full swing and romantics everywhere are planning how they’ll show their loved ones just how much they mean to them. This year, we suggest skipping the cellophane-wrapped, massed-produced chocolates and give your sweetheart a true day of romance, San Marcos-style.


Sweets For Your Sweetheart

Stop by Centerpoint Station for some of their homemade delicacies and cozy atmosphere. From ice cream sundaes to delicious fudge in an assortment of rich flavors, Centerpoint Station is the perfect place to show your love with large quantities of sugar.  


Dinner For Two

Get a table for two at Root Cellar Café, Palmer’s or Cody’s Bistro for a very romantic dining experience. With artfully prepared dishes and abundant ambiance, each available table will be coveted amongst the masses so make sure to call ahead to place a reservation or check on wait times.


A Glass Or Two…

Make your way to Patio Dolcetto for a glass of wine or carefully crafted cocktail. Take your libations on the gorgeous patio for a crisp evening outdoors. Might we suggest ordering Hot-Molten Chocolate Turtle Bundt Cake for a decadent treat to top it all off?


Kiss In Kissing Alley

What during the day seems like an average alley, at night sparkles with twinkly lights strung overhead and scenic views of the Hays County Courthouse. Nestled between some of the best nightlife in Texas, Kissing Alley is quite the romantic spot. But don’t take our word for it, Texas Highways named San Marcos one of the best main streets for nightlife and Main Street America calls San Marcos one of the most romantic main streets in America. Convinced yet?

Have a long-distance love? Simply drop your card in the mailbox at Kissing Alley (121 E. Hopkins) between February 1-14 and it'll be sent with love and a stamp that says, "Sent from Kissing Alley."
