Valentine's Day is coming up soon and that means it's time to start figuring out your plans for this Hallmark-created holiday. Luckily, you don't have to spend a ton of money if you wanna treat your favorite person to a nice date in Houston because there are plenty of cool, fun outings for cheap. One of these unique options is going to the Houston drive-in theater for a movie night.

The Showboat Drive-In isn't far outside of Houston and is one of the rare drive-ins left in Texas! It's a super cool and unique experience and we recommend getting there early to get a good spot and set up.

The movie usually starts at 6:30 p.m., depending on the season and when the sunset is, but gates open at 5:30 p.m.

An added bonus to getting there early is that you can sit in the back of your car and watch the stunning Texas sunset.

Tickets are only $8 per person, and they make sure you really get your money's worth because every one of their showings comes with two movies.

You can simply arrive, park in a good spot, and watch the new releases from the driver's seat or go all out with your set up. We've seen people even put mattresses in the bed of their truck for the coziest date ever.

You can bring your own food and snacks to enjoy during the movies, but they also have a concession stand if you want a bucket of real movie theater popcorn.

Also, they're dog-friendly, so your favorite third-wheel can tag along too!
