Galveston’s Most Romantic Places to Pop the Question

For example, those who like laid-back elegance will appreciate the “Marry Me” package at The Tremont House. You’ll get dinner for two at the historic beachfront location of the Hotel Galvez & Spa, along with a 30-minute carriage ride, roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne, and more. Or, reserve your romantic evening at Hotel Galvez & Spa, where personalized packages are available, including everything from spa services for couples to a selection of candlelight-filled spaces that are just right for proposing.

More romantic Galveston proposal sites include a box at The Grand 1894 Opera House, where the staff is happy to provide a box seat and arrange champagne and other romantic extras. For those with a passion for the unusual, consider popping the question on the deck of the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA at Pier 21. Other locations include a beautifully restored dining railcar at the Galveston Island Railroad Museum, the Gallery at Moody Mansion, and the charming fountain at Kempner Park. Lastly, opt for a unique waterfront proposal with a stunning view of the harbor at one of the benches near the Harbor House Hotel & Marina at Pier 21.
