When you’re thinking of popping the question to your significant other, the location you choose can make all the difference. Luckily, Texas offers plenty of natural and manmade places that set the mood perfectly for an unforgettable marriage proposal. Check out these 14 places for some inspiration!
1) Mount Bonnell (Austin)
At 785 feet above the city, Mount Bonnell lends breathtaking views of the Colorado River below. At sunset especially, this would make a wonderful place to pop the question.
2) Gondola Adventures (Irving)
If you really want to take your partner's breath away, you should consider taking him or her on a gondola ride through the waterways of Irving. You'll only see a few paddleboarders and pedal boats along the way, providing the perfect setting to pop the question.
3) Enchanted Rock (Fredericksburg)
What better way to propose than with panoramic views of the hill country 1800 feet below you? The rock is big enough at the top to get a piece all to yourself.
4) Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
With 70 acres of beautiful gardens overlooking White Rock Lake, you can find several secluded places in the gardens to pop the question.
5) Any of our beaches at sunset.
Is there anything more romantic than getting down on one knee to ask for your lover's hand in marriage on an evening stroll at the beach? Not in my book!
6) Lover's Leap in Cameron Park (Waco)
Another beautiful view of the hill country with the Brazos River below..at sunset, this would make a truly unforgettable place to propose.
7) Big Bend National Park
There are countless secluded spots to propose in the Big Bend, and all are guaranteed to completely floor your lover as you get down on one knee to ask the question of a lifetime.
8) Waterwall at Williams Tower (Houston)
It might be challenging to get some alone time here, but it would be an unforgettable place to pop the question with the sounds and sight of the water in the background.
9) Sunken Gardens in Brackenridge Park (San Antonio)
As you can see, romantic spots to propose abound in this area of Brackenridge Park. That bridge would make an excellent place to pose the question you've been dying to ask...
10) Japanese Gardens in Hermann Park (Houston)
With a background like that, I think you stand a pretty good chance at getting a "yes," don't you think?
11) Love's Lookout (Jacksonville)
This scenic ridge offers unmatched views of the forests of East Texas, and makes a great spot for a marriage proposal, as well.
12) Marriage Island, Riverwalk (San Antonio)
This heart-shaped islet on the riverwalk in San Antonio in front of the Hotel Contessa hosts more than 200 weddings a year. It's said to bring good luck to marriages, so I think it would offer the same good fortune for proposals as well.
13) Tyler Rose Gardens
I don't think you can go wrong here; I mean, just look at this beautiful view!
14) Hamilton Pool (Dripping Springs)
If you can get this hidden grotto to yourselves, I couldn't imagine a more memorable place to get down on one knee.
