THINK OUTSIDE THE (VALENTINE) BOX

Valentine’s Day is nearly here and all the traditions prevail. The florists in Brunswick County, NC are swamped with orders for red roses and are frantically trying to fulfill them all. Restaurant reservations are nearly filled and a number of restaurants are offering special Valentine’s Day menus. The jewelry stores have seen an upswing in sales recently. Many of these sales include hearts on the necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. The shops are full of Valentine’s Day cards and candy in heart shaped boxes. This is all wonderful. However, if you are considering doing something special to celebrate, here are a few ideas:

Why not take to the air? High Tide Helicopters and Brunswick Air, both located at the Cape Fear Regional Jetport in Oak Island, NC, offer tours of the area with a different – and beautiful – perspective. What a fun way to celebrate!

Instead of heading home after the festivities, why not book one of the historic and lovely Bed & Breakfasts. You can spend a cozy evening together and wake up to a scrumptious prepared breakfast the next morning. Even better, book it for the weekend!

If the ocean is your passion, you might consider booking a house on the beach. The winter rates are still in effect, and this is the time of the year when you can watch the sun rise and set over the ocean. Just imagine going to sleep with the sound of the sea as your lullaby!
