Happy February residents! We hope you’ve had a great start to the new year. Somehow February snuck up on us, which means Valentine’s Day is around the corner.
Are you still looking for ideas to celebrate with your partner? No need to fret, we’ve rounded up a few date night ideas to make them swoon. Whether you’re in a new relationship or a married couple these recommendations should be a hit.
We understand if you want to keep these ideas to yourself, but otherwise go ahead and share this page with your neighbors at State House on Congress — the South Congress apartments Austin residents choose for contemporary comfort and style.
Mural Photo Tour
There is no shortage of unique and eye-catching murals around Austin. These iconic displays help make Austin so great, so what better way to spend time with the one you love than by taking a tour of them.
We recommend the “I Love You So Much” mural outside of Jo’s Coffee as a great first stop on your mural tour. Mere steps from South Congress Austin Apartments this mural is one of the most Instagrammable spots in the city. While there treat your date to a coffee and get caffeinated for the rest of your mural tour. When you’re done there check out the “You’re My Butter Half” mural on East Martin Luther King Boulevard.
This idea is also great for those looking for a date that won’t break the bank!
Treat you and your date to an unforgettable dinner experience. Many restaurants downtown and near South Congress Austin Apartments will offer special pre-fixe dinner specials. These limited menus are curated to include several courses with two or three options to choose from at one price. We love them for mixing and matching and because they can offer a twist on menu staples. Think of it as a one night only special.
Last year June’s All Day had a fantastic menu, which also had wine pairings available. Be sure make your reservations well in advance as pre-fixe dinners tend to book up quickly!
ACL Live At Moody Theatre
This classic music venue transforms itself for Valentine’s Day. Celebrate the day with classic love songs performed by Austin music staple, Bob Schneider and the Moonlight Orchestra. The performance is reminiscent of Old Hollywood and is a romantic escape without travelling too far from Congress.
With its downtown location in the Second Street District you can also plan to grab a drink before or after the show.
Cheers from State House on Congress to your Valentine’s Day celebrations! We love our residents and the community that we’ve built here on South Congress and hope that you do too.
