If you don’t want to celebrate at home, here are a few sweet Family Valentine’s Day Dates in Austin.

Think PINK and dive into a pool of valentine-worthy sprinkles at the Museum of Ice Cream. Doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

Craving more rose-colored fun? Taquero Mucho is the place to be! Come for the pink tortillas and stay for the year-round Valentine vibes. The kids will love this pink-a-licious spot, and I have a feeling you’ll love the pretty (strong) cocktails!

Let your littles run around the lawn at Domain Northside. Check out all three heart-filled installations around the center, guaranteed to give you the perfect Instagram pic. A 30-foot LED heart tunnel is located in between Culinary Dropout and Valencia’s Tex-Mex Garage, and there’s gorg rosy bird cages hanging throughout. SWOON!

Once you’ve gotten your perfect photo, head to Bakery Lorraine for something sweet – like red velvet cake, heart moonpies, cherry tarts, and more.

Fresh air is my love language. Spend some time together outside as a family at Laguna Gloria. Pack a sweet picnic to enjoy together.

Of course, Valentine’s Day is the PERFECT chance to swing by Jo’s Coffee on South Congress to show your love. Snap a family photo in front of the “I love you so much” mural and update it every year. What a sweet new tradition!
