Hi Hounders,

I am looking for recommendations for fun and romantic places this weekend. The girlfriend and I usually do one expensive night for our anniversary, but this year we want to do a sort of fun adventure weekend instead.
The ideal place would have some character and preferably not be above "$$$" since we are wanting to go several places.
Thanks!

    If not too far out of your way give Bolsa and perhaps some other places in Oak Cliff a try.

        Bolsa is a great idea ... other places in Bishop Arts/Oak Cliff to try include Smoke, Mesa, and Dude, Sweet Chocolate. You could do brunch at either Smoke or Bolsa.

        I'd recommend Rough Creek Lodge out in Glen Rose.
        Not too large a resort with excellent "chef driven" food and very comfortable accommodations. Lot's to do or, just hang around.

          Rough Creek looks really nice, but I am up in the North Dallas / Plano area, so that would be more of a weekend trip for me.
