Where to Propose in Austin, Texas

by Melia Dicker on Oct 14 in Proposal

where to propose in austinAustin, Texas, is proud of its mantra, "Keep Austin Weird." The city full of hipsters, bicyclists, music, and good food is bubbling with friendly Southern charm but is otherwise more like Portland, Oregon, than the rest of the state. You'll also find plenty of romantic places in Austin to set the stage for your proposal! Austin offers so many different types of experiences that you're sure to find one that suits your lady's personality. 

Propose Outdoors in Austin

Mayfield Park

If your sweetie is a nature lover, a stroll in Mayfield Park is sure to charm her. Peacocks roam the well-maintained gardens, and several short hiking trails lead to the waterfront of Lake Austin. Admire the wildflowers and small ponds full of water lilies that create an idyllic setting. Bring a picnic and pop open some champagne right before you pop the question!

Mount Bonnell

Mount Bonnell is considered the highest point in the city, peaking at around 775 feet. If you can make it to the top, admire the magnificent views of Lake Austin. You might even glimpse the downtown area if you hike on a clear day. Watch the sunset with your lady from the pavilion at the top. It's the perfect place to share with her how much she means to you! 

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is one of the most romantic places in Austin. It was founded by Lady Bird Johnson, former First Lady, and actress Helen Hayes to preserve America's natural landscapes and native plants. With colorful butterflies and flowers all around you, it feels magical. Meander through the walking trails and sit on a bench admiring the scenery. Some visitors object to the $9 per person entrance fee, but this is a small price to pay for a proposal neither of you will forget! 

Propose in an Upscale Austin Restaurant 

Chez Nous

What could be more romantic than a leisurely dinner of French food? Chez Nous will set the scene for your proposal with its shabby chic decor and high-quality fare. Consider the Menu du Jour, which provides a wonderful overview of the restaurant's offerings for under $30 per person. Be sure to order dessert, because sweets like mousse, profiteroles, and crepes are decadently romantic…especially when they're followed by a diamond cluster ring

Fabi + Rosi

Fabi + Rosi has a reputation for its romantic ambience and spectacular food. The owners are a married couple from Austin and Germany, and they serve up classic European dishes with a modern touch. Local, seasonal, and organic ingredients are a priority, and the food is delightfully fresh. Choose from an extensive wine list and raise your glass to your bride-to-be.
