Couples will love the local charm of this historic Texas town.

June 19, 2014

When Roanoke (named by a settler from Roanoke, Virginia) was founded in the mid-1800s, the town had cattle trading, saloons, and a blacksmith shop. Today it’s home to over 50 dining options and 40 boutiques—surprising for a town of 8,000—as well as events such as summer evening concerts on vibrant Oak Street. Close by, travelers can visit wineries and overnight in lovely B&Bs. —Stirling Kelso

The Classic at Roanoke

Snag a table for two in this cozy cottage for plates such as line-caught yellow fin sashimi with a balsamic ginger glaze and brown sugar pork belly confit.

Inzo Italian Kitchen

Chef Daniele Puleo, a native Sicilian, brings talent and good taste from his homeland in brick-façade restaurant, where the caprese salad, freshly baked pizzas (among other dishes) are topped with housemade mozzarella. Don’t skip out on the dessert: The tiramisu earns rave reviews for good reason.

The Southern Georgian-style home outside of Roanoke has generous front porches and five unfussy rooms with beautiful crown molding, nine-foot ceilings, and original wood-paned windows.
