Located at Pier 21, this is by far one of the most romantic date nights in Galveston! Sweep your date off their feet and set sail on a sunset tour of Galveston’s Harbor. Our favorite part about this is that you can pack your own little picnic on board!

No hard liquor is allowed, but you can bring wine, beer, and as many snacks as you want! If you’re looking for a daytime date option, they do sightseeing tours, dolphin tours, and even a Jet Boat thrill ride!

They vary seasonally.  Click here to check availability.

Next up on our best date nights in Galveston list seems like an obvious one, but there are so many activities and memories to be made at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier that you’ll need to come back multiple times to experience it all!

Oh, but these are not just your average carnival rides, these are the real deal. It’s actually one of the few spots in the world that has this many rides over water! Not a fan of rides?

Nothing wrong with a good old fashion dinner date. Sometimes you don’t need the theatrics to have a good time. Grab a quality burger, a fancy cocktail with an umbrella in it, and some quality conversations! Bored of talking to one another? The staff here and the other patrons are super friendly too!

Shark Shack Beach Bar & Grill is one of the hottest spots for date nights in Galveston. Known as a local favorite for their delicious seafood, burgers & fun bar scene! Located just 1 block from the cruise ships, Shark Shack has the best happy hours, best fish tacos, and best burgers! They even have awards to prove it. Come here with your date, watch the game, relax in the nice patio seating, and enjoy some lively jams each weekend! Oh, and did we mention the desserts? Sinful.

It’s the game that never gets old. No matter how old you are, you’ll never outgrow a game of mini-golf. We think it should be a law that all couples must go on at least one mini-golf date night – to see how comparable each other’s competitive side is!

But in all seriousness, Magic Carpet Golf is one of the coolest minis putt spots in town. This place is super interactive with moving parts, gigantic animal statues, plenty of photo opportunities, and you can even choose the easy or hard route to take!
