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.

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
