For those looking to woo like no one has ever wooed before, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to make the love of your life swoon. has some great suggestions for visitors that will work just as well for us Cape Codders.

First on the list, takes us into the bright blue sky...

A tour with Ryan Rotors Helicopter Services is a wonderful way to spend a Valentine's date (unless, of course, your mate is afraid of height). The tours fly out of Plymouth Municipal Airport and offer a unique view of the South Shore, Cape Cod, and the Islands. Whether you want to show your love "a whole new world" and don't have a magic carpet, or perhaps even pop the question, this is a great way to do it!

Also, if you buy a gift certificate or book a tour for two people, you will get a 3rd at ½ price (although this might be better for a non-Valentine's Day gift!). For more info call 508-746-3111. There are weight restrictions (260 lbs per person or 550 lb combined weight for 2-3 passengers).
