With its classic small-town look and feel and prime location on Lake Ray Hubbard, it's not hard to see the romantic side of Rockwall, Texas. Couples headed to Rockwall find the harborfront and the lake ripe with couple-friendly experiences to share with someone special. However, you'll also find romantic hot spots in Rockwell beyond its lake, including relaxing and scenic places to unwind and enjoy quiet time together.

Along the Harborfront

Much of the best entertainment and dining options available in Rockwall are on the Lake Ray Hubbard waterfront. At the heart of the waterfront is the Harbor Rockwall, collection of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. Take your partner out for a romantic dinner at one of the fine-dining establishments. After dinner, pick up ice cream or chocolate from one of the dessert shops and stroll hand in hand to the lighthouse that juts out into the water. You can catch the latest romantic comedy at Harbor Rockwall's movie theater. If you're in town during the summer, the Harbor Amphitheater is the site of weekly summer concerts from local and national bands and performers.

On The Lake

Enjoy a romantic boat ride on Lake Ray Hubbard. Sail With Scott is one charter boating company on the lake that features both private and public sailboat experiences on three vessels. Choose between the Seawolf, a 40-foot long sailing catamaran; a 57-foot power boat; and Bucket List, a sleek and modern sailboat that moves swiftly across the water. Whether you choose a private boat ride or shared, bring your own wine or champagne to commemorate the moment. Opt for a sunset cruise to add more romance to the experience. For a more intimate, back-to-nature experience, rent a canoe or kayak from Chandler's Landing Marina and enjoy a leisure ride on the lake with just the two of you.

At the Winery

Stroll through the lush vineyards of the San Martino Winery, a family owned and nationally recognized winery. For the purchase of a bottle of wine, you can bring a picnic lunch and find a secluded spot on the grounds to share a quiet moment. You also may call ahead to arrange for a private tour. The winery hosts regular events such as wine tastings, jazz concerts, and food-and-wine-pairing dinners, -- all romantic options to enjoy with your special someone.

At the Spa

Indulge in a luxurious spa treatment with your love at one of Rockwall's day spas. The elegant Belfior Day Spa features classic spa treatments such as detoxifying facials, hydrating body wraps and various types of massage treatments. Take advantage of the spa's "Romance Ritual for Two" package, which includes the spa's signature quench body scrub, massage, facial and pedicure in its private couple's room. Lunch and champagne are included. Another Rockwell Spa to check out is A Light Touch, a smaller, more intimate spa experience. The spa offers couples' massages of any kind, with enhancements such as hot stones or private time in the sauna suite. Other treatments available include its signature aromatherapy facials and special facial just for men.
