Get up and off your couch—explore the great state of Texas in style with your significant other!

Here are just a few of our favorite romantic Texan activities to enjoy with your partner.

1) Explore the vineyards of Texas' countryside

The wineries and vineyards of the Texas Hill Country are some of the largest wine producers in the United States.

Uncork and unwind by indulging in some Texan wine at one of the many vineyards through Texas' countryside. Though Texas might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of fine wine, the heart of the state's countryside happens to be one of the largest and oldest wine-growing regions in the United States. Wine Road 290, in particular, is becoming increasingly famous for its scenic vineyards set amid the rolling countryside hills. Wine not check it out yourselves?

We recommend staying at this quirky and romantic cabin rental in the charming German-influenced town of Fredricksburg.

2) Go stargazing in the desert

There are few places better than Western Texas for a romantic night of stargazing.

Embrace the Dark Sky Ordinance and go stargazing in Western Texas, where the dry desert air makes for some of the brightest stars you'll ever see. Allow yourselves to get away from all of the light pollution of the inner city and let the Texan stars light up your world instead.

If this sounds like something for you and your honey, head over to Terlingua, Texas, which is known to be one of the best places to experience total seclusion and truly dark skies. Snuggle up with your significant other in this unique eco-dome for a truly unforgettable experience.

3) Explore a geological wonder

If you and your significant other are looking to get hot and sweaty, might we suggest taking one of the more strenuous hiking paths in the beautiful Big Bend National Park? This National Park is located in western Texas and is so mesmerizing that it is often referred to as a geologic wonder by scientists. The dramatic mountain range surrounded by weather beaten canyons and arid desert is sure to provide an adventurous getaway for any couple!

We're not the only ones hollering out a big yee-haw to the glamping treasures of Texas! Just check out travel guru, Pamela, and her family's visit to the eco-cabins of Texas Hill Country. It will only take a second for you to be convinced that a visit down south is bucket list-worthy. As Pam and her family aim to accomplish 12 trips in 12 months, Glamping Hub could not say no to being part of such a unique opportunity.

With over 300 glamping rentals in Texas alone, we cannot wait to see where Pam's next trip will take her—perhaps a glamping getaway abroad?

To find out more about the luxuries of Texas glamping and what made the biggest impression on this blogger extraordinaire, read her Glamping Hub interview below:

What is your favorite thing about travel and glamping in Texas?

One of my favorite things about traveling and glamping in Texas has got to be how diverse Texas is. I love that the agriculture allows for so much different plant life everywhere we go. On our last trip, we picked up a fun cactus as a souvenir!

Does the time of year affect your preference for accommodation?

A bit. I'm trying to experience a proper fall and winter this year, so during those times, I'll be on high alert for the prettiest destinations for fall foliage and snowflakes.

alt

What is your go-to must-have for traveling?

Dry shampoo. I usual exhaust myself with trips (even when "relaxing"), so dry shampoo is the best to keep me from feeling too gross.

What is your absolute favorite activity to do when glamping? Why?

I love to just RELAX. I do that by hiking, stargazing, or just laying around.

alt

If you could pack your bags to go glamping anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be and why?

I'd absolutely LOVE to go glamping in Italy; I think every girl wants to get away to Italy once in her life. And I found the coolest cave to stay in, too!

Do you prefer glamping trips with a couple people or a large group?

I love to get away with just my husband and kids. Although trips with large groups is fun, I'm a control freak so they stress me out a bit. ;)

alt

What made the most lasting impression for you at the last accommodation you visited?

Seeing how comfortably we could live in around 200-ish square feet made me reexamine just how little I might need in my daily life.

This glamping site would be perfect for:

Groups, because it had mini cabins, so everyone would have their own area to escape but can come together in the outdoors.

Can you please explain more about your 12 trips in 12 months Goal?

I came up with the idea (after a bit of wine) of taking 12 trips in 12 months with my husband and two kids. I have been too focused on being available for work (as had my husband) & not focusing on what really mattered to me. So this year we hope to take 12 trips together as a family and focus on making memories together. Because memories and family are what really matter.
