Galentine's Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate the incredible friendships and bonds shared among girlfriends. And what better place to celebrate girlhood than in the vibrant city of Austin? From delectable brunch spots to serene parks and exciting entertainment venues, Austin offers a plethora of options to make this Galentine's Day truly memorable.

Austin Brunch Spots

Nothing says galentine’s like a brunch outing. From boozy brunches to breakfast and a show, Austin’s brunch game will delight the squad.

Kick-start your Galentine's Day adventure with a delightful brunch at Elizabeth Street Café. This charming spot combines French-Vietnamese cuisine in a whimsical atmosphere, boasting an array of mouthwatering dishes. Indulge in their delectable pastries, flavorful pho and scrumptious bánh mì sandwiches while catching up with your besties.

Or start your day with a dose of locally sourced dishes that are just what the doctor ordered at Hillside Farmacy. As a farm-to-table restaurant, Hillside sources its seasonal ingredients from Texas ranchers, uses Texas wildflower honey, and serves local roasted coffees. 

Outdoor Fun 

Known for its great outdoors, both within the city limits and in the nearby rural Texas Hill Country, Austin offers plenty to explore for the outdoor girlies. 

Make the trek up the Lake Austin/360 Bridge Overlook Trail for spectacular views of the city and Hill Country, or cycle from downtown to Mount Bonnell, along the waters of Lake Austin for an awesome sunset view. 

If you’d rather stay within the city, plan a picnic at Zilker Park just south of downtown. Spread out a cozy blanket amidst the lush greenery and take in the scenic beauty of this iconic park. With its sprawling lawns and serene ambiance, it's an ideal spot to unwind, share stories and watch local pups play around the green space (cute!).

Treat Yourself to Relaxation 

From luxurious massages to revitalizing facials and soothing body treatments, Austin’s spas offer an array of services designed to help you unwind and feel refreshed. Spend some quality time together in a tranquil environment, unwinding from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Treat yourselves to a pampering session at Viva Day Spa, where relaxation and rejuvenation take center stage. Indulge in their Viva Diva Spa Package, which includes a 90-minute Swedish massage, sugar scrub, hydrating body wrap, mint scalp treatment, foot reflexology, designer facial, deluxe mani-pedi, lunch, wine, and chocolate. Talk about the perfect galentine!
