Romantic Things to Do in New Jersey

Whether for an anniversary, a birthday, or just a chance to get away as a couple, there are many romantic things to do in New Jersey to make the time together extra special. New Jersey vacation rentals offer an added level of privacy and seclusion ideal for romance, and are so plentiful throughout the state that you'll find a wide choice near any couples' activities you might want to enjoy. Once you are finally alone together, try one (or more!) of these romantic options to add the perfect touch to your escape.

Enjoy a Couples’ Massage in Your Vacation Rental

With the Pampered Spirit , a New Jersey-based travelling massage service, you can enjoy a dreamy night of sumptuous relaxation without leaving your vacation home. Trained massage therapists will provide everything you need for a romantic evening in. You can even select packages with chocolates, flowers and candles to set the mood. The two of you can luxuriate in side-by-side Swedish, hot- stone, aromatherapy or deep tissue massages, or other options like reflexology or reiki. The company even offers couples massage training classes, where you can learn hands-on to give each other loving massages. The travelling service is available along most of the Jersey Shore and many inland areas.

with interesting history about the area or quietly leave you in peace to enjoy the view and each other. Well-trained horses ensure a safe and stately ride. Bring cash or travelers checks because the company does not accept credit or debit cards. Cape  May's half-hour tours run daily in the summer months and on weekends from October through December, and they have special rides during the holiday season.

Take a Romantic Cruise

For those that love the water, one of the most romantic things to do in New Jersey is an evening cruise along the waterways. The River Belle , an 80-foot paddle-wheel boat, leaves from Point Pleasant Beach and cruises the Manasquan River, the Point Pleasant Canal and Barnegat Bay. A buffet dinner is served as the sun is setting over the water, and then they bring out their DJ for a night of dancing. Their staff members are very attentive and friendly, and they go out of their way to make your special occasion perfect. The company doesn't accept credit cards, so be prepared to pay in cash for tickets.

For something quieter you can take a sunset sailing cruise with Barnegat Bay Sailboat Charters , which has no dinner but provides snacks and beverages. Cruises on the 30-foot sailboat, Margarita, depart an hour before sunset from the Cedar Creek Marina in Bayville, NJ. The company offers a $5 discount off all tickets Monday through Thursday, and those days have less-crowded cruises, as well, for more privacy and romance.

Taste the Local Wines

Foodies and wine lovers count New Jersey wine tasting amongst the most romantic things to do in New Jersey. Just inland from Little Egg Harbor and the busy beaches of Beach Haven you will find Renault Winery, one of the oldest in the nation. Follow up a tour of the winery with a tasting for only $5, including a souvenir wine glass. Renault Winery's fascinating history includes visits by Al Capone, who was once a friend of the owner. You can even see the piano where he once sat.
The Cape May region is also home to several wineries, and the area's wines are described as resembling those from the Bordeaux region of France. Cape May Winery & Vineyard , Natali Vineyards and Turdo Vineyards are all located within beautiful Cape May County , making an excellent romantic wine-tasting tour. Cape May Winery's wines have won many awards. Try their chardonnays and reislings with a picnic on their deck overlooking the vineyard. Turdo's grapes are all estate-grown, and the winery is known for its fabulous Nero D'Avola and sauvignon blanc. Natali Vineyards is perfect for an end-of-day respite, as they are known for having the best sunset and a fantastic viogner.
