Perfect Places to Propose During the Holidays

First, snag a table at The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House and say “yes” to the stunning view with a sunset proposal. Or, pop the question during a romantic carriage ride through the Strand Historic District. Explore whimsical ice carvings while melting your sweetie’s heart with a winter wonderland proposal at Moody Gardens Ice Land. For old-fashioned charm, you can’t beat the top of a Ferris Wheel to bust out a ring and sweep your honey off their feet, and you’ll find the perfect Ferris Wheel at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier. History lovers can propose on the deck of the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA at Pier 21, or on any of Pier 21’s lovely benches—just add a starry sky for perfect proposal ambiance. Or get box seats for a holiday show at The Grand 1894 Opera House and pop the question while sipping on champagne. 

Smart fiancés and fiancées-to-be can capture two lovebirds with one stone by making reservations for luxury accommodations, some of which offer romantic specials. If you’re looking for downtown accommodations, The Tremont House offers a “Marry Me” Engagement Package which includes a suite, roses, champagne, and chocolate-covered strawberries, along with a carriage ride and dinner for two. Hotel Galvez & Spa is ideal for romantic beachside stays with spa services and a concierge who’ll help you personalize your proposal. For a breathtaking view of the harbor and easy access to Pier 21, check into the Harbor House Hotel and Marina at Pier 21. Congratulations on your happily ever after!
