I'm not too sure about Dallas, but I lived in Texas and have travelled through several areas, and my favorite place is San Antonio.. The River Walk is amazingly romantic, and there are lots of other fun things to do in the area

there's a nice French restaurant called Toulouse in Dallas. http://www.toulousecafeandbar.com/

i've eaten there a few times, and every time the food there was *amazing*. it's a very authentic restaurant, it's in a really nice area, and it's not that expensive even.

anyway, i've only lived in the dallas area for a year so i don't have that many other ideas...sorry. the Dallas Aboretum is nice and romantic (lots of flowers, trees, Japanese ponds, gardens, fountains, tons of people getting engagement/wedding photos taken) but it's probably not as fun when it's a million degrees & sunny outside (like it is now..lol)

If I were you, I would stay at the Hotel Zaza. Right down the street is a restaurant called the "Old Warsaw". It is VERY old school. The ladies get flowers, violin players, etc....actually...right now there are coupons on Restaurant.com for that restaurant, and if you use the code "taste" you get the coupon for $2. Here is the link....

Also...if you don't want to stay at a big hotel....there is a B&B right across the street from me call The Corinthian....and it is gorgeous and SO romantic!!!!

Thinking of more stuff......

What about rise? It's a restaurant in the park cities area that specializes in souffle. Or the rattlesnake bar...

I live in Dallas and there are lots of great things to do here! The early part of September is KRLD Restaurant Week, where restaurants offer a fixed price menu and the proceeds to go the food bank - you can eat at lots of Dallas' nicest places for $35 per person. Another great site to check out is guidelive.com...it's the newspaper's online site for everything that's going on in town.

^ oh i did not know that Dallas even had a restaurant week! though of course it had to be this week, when my DH is out of town.. :sad: oh well, maybe next year. thanks for the info. i :heart: restaurant week, I used to go every year when i lived in Boston and it was always amazing, was able to eat at really fancy restaurants for great prices. i did not know other cities had it too, that's pretty cool.
