Sweet Ideas

Thinking about how to treat your sweetie for Valentine’s Day this year? Or maybe you’re planning to spend the weekend with friends and family? However you’re celebrating, we’ve got you covered!

Here are five sweet ideas to get your juices flowing:

Head over to The Rustic in Rockport. Entrees range from a delicious steak to a simple (but extremely tasty!) sandwich. And don’t forget to try their signature homemade chips! Find a list of all local restaurants here.

Sit back and sip on local wines at Pepper’s Ridge Winery or Monkey Hollow Winery and Distillery — or both if you please! Both local wineries provide gorgeous scenery and outdoor seating if weather permits. Relax with your favorite variety and some local cheese from Steckler Grassfed.

Check in to the Corner House Bed & Breakfast near Rockport. This cozy, country inn is perfect for a romantic couple or a few friends celebrating Galentine’s Day. The themed guest rooms include baths, flat-screen TVs with cable, Wi-Fi, and more. And you won’t want to miss the home-cooked breakfast made by the owner, Jenny!

If you want to surprise that special someone (or treat yourself) with flowers or a sweet gift, swing by Evergreen Boutique & Christmas Shop in Santa Claus for a fabulous selection and wonderful customer service. This shop has a little something for everyone… from a warm accent scarf to beautifully arranged flower bouquets and a unique selection of jewelry. You can’t go wrong here!

The littlest sweethearts deserve to be celebrated, too, so be sure to stop in Santa’s TOYS. With more than 2,500 toys to choose from — including a selection of STEM products — you’re sure to find the perfect gifts for the kids in your life.

Well, what are you waiting for?
