My husband and I have always wanted to visit San Antonio together. I was there about 3 years ago on a press trip and stayed in a hotel on the riverfront and OH MY GOODNESS y’all — it was amazing. The hotel had a balcony so I left the doors open and you could hear music playing — it was simply romantic. I made a promise to myself that Stephen and I would eventually come back to this city and stay here so that we could enjoy that same romantic feel. In fact, I am trying to plan something for our upcoming 24th wedding anniversary — thanks to all the amazing deals that Groupon has going on right now.
We are not one for all the normal things to do that couples do, so we are always looking for those out of the box experiences that quaint towns like San Antonio offer.
Here are 3 that I recently found that I think are going to be on our agenda when we do visit!
3 Out of the Box Romantic Things to Do In San Antonio
Picnic in the Vineyard

Picnic in the Vines for Two or Four or a Wine Experience for Two at Pilot Knob Vineyard (Up to 61% Off)
Now, this might not sound like an out of the box date idea, but have you ever had a date in the middle of a vineyard? A picnic date in the middle of a vineyard? I know I haven’t and it would not be something that we regularly would do, but I would absolutely LOVE the idea of doing this.
For $36, you can get this date and have a great time with your man!
Pairs and quartets nestle in cabernet vines to enjoy picnics fueled by fine cheeses, hard meats, crackers, and a fresh-baked baguette. The picnic also includes seasonal fruit and chocolate for dessert and bottled waters for filling portable aquariums. The vineyard also provides one take-home wineglass per person in case groups decide to purchase a bottle of wine to pair with snacks. The wine experience includes a cheese platter, bread, and oil, as well as a wineglass for each person to take home.
Self Guided Scavenger Hunt for Two
Self-Guided San Antonio Scavenger Hunt for Two, Four, or Six from Big City Hunt (Up to 54% Off)
I can only imagine how fun this would be! A scavenger hunt always brings out the competitive spirit in me — and hubby and I love making bets at who is going to win whatever we are doing. Winner usually buys dinner or gives a back rub — but you can be as creative as you like.
For only $22 for the two of you to have a lot of fun, why not right?
Fifteen clues. Two hours. One city. This is Big City Hunt, a self-led scavenger race that sends groups capering around town to solve clues. But unlike other city-wide excursions, Big City Hunt unshackles racers from the tyranny of official start times and concrete dates. Players simply click on a launch code, head to the starting line, and get on with it whenever they’ve got a spare two hours. During the process, they’ll get fun stories and insights about historical sites while discovering hidden gems along the way.
Harlem Globetrotters Basketball Game
Harlem Globetrotters Game (December 29 at 2 p.m. or 7 p.m.)
Are you kidding me? Who would not want to go to a Harlem Globetrotters game? I grew up watching them, so to me, this would be a perfect out of the box date idea!
Stephen and I love watching basketball (him more than me, but I love the togetherness time we have). Going to a Globetrotters game would be epic!
This date would be a little more expensive, but the experience is worth every single penny spent!
This season, the Globetrotters will celebrate their 91st anniversary the only way they know how: with a jaw-dropping blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship that has entertained hundreds of millions of fans over the past nine decades. Throughout the team’s lengthy tour, a rotating roster of Globetrotter favorites—including a pair of female players—will take to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard TNT sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker Thunder, who also holds the world record for longest basketball shot at 109 feet and 9 inches.
This is only three of the amazing deals that GROUPON has for things to do in San Antonio. They are always adding more deals and romantic getaway ideas. Even if any of the things I gave you to do aren’t for you or if you are traveling somewhere else make sure you give GROUPON the chance to hook up your romantic getaway the way you would love it!
Groupon is definitely the way to go these days.
