10 Hot Staycations to Celebrate Your Love

We get it — vacations are hard, especially when planning for a loved one. Staycations offer a convenient and memorable alternative. Here are 10 unique staycation ideas, so you can focus on celebrating your love without sweating the details.

A Small Town Retreat in Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg has something for everyone — history buffs, wine connoisseurs, and boutique lovers alike. Stay in one of the many unique lodging options, such as Haven Yurts (havenyurts.com), Hoffman Haus B&B (hoffmanhaus.com) or a local Airbnb for more privacy. Spend your days wine tasting at local wineries (we recommend slatetheory.com), shopping at boutique stores, and experiencing the enchanting small-town atmosphere. 

Western Luxury at the Fort Worth Stockyards

Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of the Stockyards while staying in luxury at Hotel Drover, which boasts a heated pool, shops, and fire pits. Go for Italian at Caterina’s Ristorante, listen to live music at Second Rodeo, and embrace your inner cowboy with custom hats from Flea Style. End the night on the dance floor at Billy Bob’s, the world’s largest honky tonk, before you mosey on back for a good night’s sleep.

Escape on a Dallas Daycation

Kick off your day with a coffee and brunch, followed by a visit to one of Dallas’s local markets. There are plenty of activities to fill your day. Compete at Game Show Battle Rooms for some laughs or take a more introspective approach at one of the many museums in Dallas. Dine at Carbone or Casablanca and cap off the night at a speakeasy, such as Apothecary or Babou’s, for a taste of that old-world charm. 

Vineyard Vibes at The Vin in Grapevine

This boutique hotel is located right off of Grapevine’s Main Street, where you can explore the numerous local shops and restaurants that fill the area.

A Taste of Europe in McKinney

Stroll along the cobbled streets and explore local shops and restaurants, all reminiscent of a quaint European village. Pamper yourselves at the various beauty stops, offering massages, facials, and more. Adriatica Village serves as an enchanting backdrop for a truly memorable celebration. 

Unwind in Nature at Twin Coves 

If the outdoors is your thing, Twin Coves Park in Flower Mound is a great (and easy) staycation. Stay in furnished cabins, load up the RV, or set up a tent — whatever suits your camping style. You can rent a kayak on Grapevine Lake, explore the numerous hiking trails, and indulge in the park’s many amenities, including a grass volleyball court.
