Austin is a large city, but it is surrounded by some of the most beautiful nature in the US. One only has to travel a few miles from the city to find pristine desert waterways, such as McKinney Falls, and steaming hot springs with gorgeous geysers, such as Barton Springs. Horseback riding and trails are abundant in this beautiful city. If your sweetheart is a nature lover, a little sleuthing will guarantee that you find an ideal proposal location.


Austin is nationally recognized for its music scene. The television show “Austin City Limits” has brought the city a lot of attention with its televised concert series. Consider taking your sweetheart to live Austin City Limits concert, or enjoy one of the other venues that have cropped up in the shadow of the famous ACL hall. If you plan ahead, you can catch almost any renowned performer in live concert. An experienced proposal planner may even be able to help you finagle a backstage pass for an all-star proposal!


If you are planning to propose to a painter, a sculptor, or just a girl who appreciates the fine arts, then Austin is a great destination for a  proposal trip. The city offers many galleries, outdoor sculptures,  statues, and also some amazing repositories of art. The Blanton Museum of Art is one of the foremost art museums in the United States, and offers the chance to dazzle your girl with amazing pieces of art before you dazzle her with a ring. For an edgier art scene, consider venturing into the Hope Outdoor Gallery, which features stunning graffiti murals on a grand scale.
