15 Ways to Say 'I Love You' on Cape Cod and The Islands

  1. Schedule a romantic getaway to Cape Cod, Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard for you and your sweetie. Rent a cozy one-bedroom for just the two of you. With over 100 to choose from, you are bound to find one perfectly suited to you.
  2. Valentine's Day Cape Cod style
  3. Nothing says “I love you” like chocolate. Pick up a box of sweets from The Hot Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans or amazing pastries from Eat Cake for Breakfast in Brewster. Not enough chocolate? Spend the day at the Osterville Chocolate Fest.
  4. Flowers, flowers, flowers. Who doesn’t love fresh, fragrant flowers? Plenty of wonderful florists in the area can create an extra special floral arrangement.
  5. Relaxation for two. Arrange for a couples massage at one of the many day spas located on the Cape and Islands.
  6. Arrange for a photo shoot to capture your love for one another and to document your getaway.
