We’re so glad you asked! Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or looking to treat a special someone to a day filled with love, Cedar Park has plenty to offer. So, grab your beloved’s hand, and let’s explore the most enchanting spots to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Cedar Park.
- Brushy Creek Lake Park
All you early risers will enjoy starting your day with a stroll hand-in-hand through Brushy Creek Lake Park. This picturesque park offers stunning lake views, perfect for stealing a quiet moment together. Bring some coffee and a box of goodies from Round Rock Donuts, spread out a blanket under the shade of a tree, and make a toast to love that lasts.
- Pickleball at Veteran’s Memorial Park
For all you competition lovers, try a lively game of pickleball in the afternoon. Veteran’s Memorial Park is within walking distance of Tanner Ranch, which makes squeezing a game into your day easy. As the rhythmic pop of the ball mingles with the gentle banter all pickleball players enjoy, your love for each other will surely grow (especially if you beat the other team!). You can even steal this poem from us to share with your favorite player: Roses are red, violets are blue, through life’s dinks and smashes, I’ll always choose you.
- A Romantic Night In
Plan a romantic dinner at home if the restaurants seem too crowded on Valentine’s Day! The homes in Tanner Ranch have air fryer ovens with real convection cooking, so whipping up a delicious meal is a breeze. Light a few candles, put on a jazz record, and try this recipe for Marry Me Chicken with hot fudge sundaes for dessert.
- Ice Skating at the Crossover
What’s more romantic than gliding along just before your arms flail, your feet fly out from under you, and you fall flat on the ice? Ice skating offers a fun way to spend a few hours together, laughing at how we all look a little like Bambi when we do it. (It’s also a good excuse to drink a hot cup of cocoa from Red Horn Coffee afterward.) PS If you can skate backward, don’t forget to show off a little!
- A Romantic Night Out
If a night in isn’t for you, head to one of Cedar Park’s excellent restaurants. With so many options, you’re bound to find the perfect one. Some local favorite spots are Mandola’s, Blue Corn Tortilla, Ramen 512, Shake Shack, Moonshine, Mouton’s Bistro & Bar, Santa Catarina, and Hop Doddy. And as always, The Good Lot is a quick stroll around the corner on New Hope. To make it extra fun, try a progressive dinner, going to a different restaurant for drinks & appetizers, main dish, and dessert.
However you decide to spend Valentine’s Day in Cedar Park, we trust you’ll find love is always in bloom here. Valentine’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy some time with the people you care about most, and we hope you create lasting memories with Cedar Park (and Tanner Ranch) as the backdrop to your perfect date night.
