Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Texarkana

Love is in the air in Texarkana, AR, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Have you planned something for your special someone yet? If not, don’t worry! There are plenty of romantic things to do in Texarkana, and we’ve got some ideas about how you can celebrate your love leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Start with breakfast.

If you want a slower start to the day, bounce around to some of the breakfast spots in Texarkana. First thing’s first – coffee. Swing by Alley Cats Coffee Bar for a coffee date. Treat yourself and your significant other to their delicious drinks and enjoy the retro atmosphere – and each other’s company.

After coffee, enjoy a homestyle breakfast from Sue N’ Carol’s Kitchen or Old Tyme Burger Shoppe, where you can have classic breakfast dishes including eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, toast, and more. If you have a sweet tooth, there’s nothing like a dozen donuts from Mix Donuts to start Valentine’s Day on an extra sweet note. 

Explore downtown in the afternoon.

Take some time to explore downtown together. Snap photos in front of one of the beautiful murals, visit the Four States Auto Museum, browse the art collection at The Gallery at 1894, and make your way over to the Rail Yard Entertainment District as the sun goes down to have dinner and drinks. Follow us on Facebook for more updates about things to do in Downtown Texarkana.

While you’re downtown, stop by the local boutiques for some Valentine’s Day shopping. The perfect place to find your loved one a special gift is in a local store. Visit Main Street Texarkana for more information on stores and shopping downtown. 

Share a romantic dinner.

Call ahead and make dinner reservations at local restaurant for a romantic date night. Monjunis Italian Cafe serves tasty Italian fare for lunch and dinner and has wine and cocktails so you can say, “Cheers!” with your special someone on Valentine’s Day. Zapata’s is another great place to take your significant other, offering a taste of the Southwest and a great atmosphere. If you’re looking for more casual spots to grab dinner, check out Fat Jack’s Oyster & Sports Bar or Hopkins Icehouse. You can also find award-winning BBQ at Naaman’s Championship BBQ.

If you’d rather stay in and watch a rom-com, grab food to-go from one of the food trucks around Texarkana, Arkansas, like pizza from Underground Pizza Company or sushi from Rieki Hibachi & Sushi on Wheels.

No matter how you’re planning to spend Valentine’s Day, we hope you have a romantic time celebrating with your significant other in Texarkana, Arkansas.
