The Rest of the Best: Houston's Top 10 Romantic Spots

9. Williams Tower Waterwall 2800 Post Oak Boulevard.

Suffering from a slight case of over-exposoure, the Williams Tower Waterwall nonetheless makes a wonderful setting for a first kiss. Again, we suggest dusk as the optimum time to visit. Chances are another couple or two will also be visiting at the same time as you, so don't expect total privacy.

8. Hotel Sorrela's Monalisa Lounge 800 Sorella Court

We admit the Monalisa appeals to the failed socialite in us - but the vision of sitting in our own draped cabana having drinks by the pool and overlooking the hotel's plaza screams romance. (Those drapes come in handy when you want to turn a PDA into something more private.) Great drinks and good food add to the allure - as does knowing a hotel room is just a few steps away for complete privacy.

7. Kemah Boardwalk 215 Kipp Avenue

Yes, the Kemah Boardwalk tends to bustle with families and tourists during its frequent festivals, but even that can't mar the boardwalk's appeal. The quite water, wide walkways, beautiful sunsets - and a whole bunch of places to get a drink and dinner nearby push the boardwalk into our No. 7 spot.
