In our Date Ideas series, we shine a curated light on Houston’s multi-faceted neighborhoods to bring you two to three thoughtfully paired romantic activities worth checking out, no matter the depth of your wallet or tone of your relationship. 

Stroll along The Boardwalk Towne Lake

Catch a concert by the shore, unwind and get a couple’s massage at Massage Heights, or share a meal while waterfront dining at The Boardwalk Towne Lake.

Couples can shop the boardwalk’s many boutiques, be health conscious together at Orange Theory Fitness, or satisfy their taste buds while overlooking the lake at Sam’s Boat, which offers fresh seafood and Tex-Mex favorites.

Other delicious dining options include Torchy’s Tacos, Mod Pizza, and Sub Zero, a spot offering ice cream with liquid nitrogen.

Music lovers can relax under the stars while enjoying the sound waves of live R&B, soul, indie-folk, and country music with monthly events on the Boardwalk.

Sip on a drink at Painting with a Twist

Creative couples grab your favorite wine or beer and get twisted together while painting your own masterpiece at Painting with a Twist.

What is sure to be an icebreaker for couples, local artists walk you step by step to the completion of a masterpiece such as a scene from Star Wars: Rogue One, a lighthouse amongst a sunset, a rustic Texas flag, an oak tree entangled with fireflies and more.

Couples can keep their date night outfits crisp and clean, thanks to the complimentary aprons provided by Painting with a Twist. What’s more, you can even take your masterpieces home after the class, so you and your date can talk about each other’s surprisingly good or bad art skills.
