Go to a Local Winery
In the mood to be wined and dined? Well, you can literally do that at Renault Winery Resort and Golf in Egg Harbor City. The vineyard offers a historic wine tour and a gourmet restaurant to conclude your romantic night.
It may be wintertime, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on some wet and wild fun at an indoor water park. Somewhere like Sahara Sam’s is the perfect place for a date for that adventurous couple or if you’re trying to break the ice on a first date. Located in West Berlin, New Jersey on Route 73, you and your valentine can have a blast at this indoor oasis filled with waterslides, hot tubs, water rafts and any tropical drink of choice.
If your date is a little bit on the high maintenance side surprise them with a overnight stay at The Southern Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey. The mansion is only a 5-minute walk away from the beach and offers a full gourmet breakfast, maid service and 32’’ flat screen TVs to end the night with a romance flick.
The Cape May Ferry
A romantic boat ride that over looks the ocean seems like something out of a movie, but it can actually happen for you this Valentine’s Day. Book a Ferry ride that will travel from Cape May to Delaware, passing by historic lighthouses and a spectacular bird selection. Or even surprise your date with the special Valentine’s Day package that includes ferry fare, fudge and champagne!
Spend your V-day in America’s Playground! Treat you and your date to a full day of pampering at Caesars Qua Bath and Spa in Atlantic City.

Visit a Lighthouse
Star gaze with that special someone at the Barnegat or Absecon lighthouse, accompanied by a romantic picnic set up. The weather may be a little frigid, so be sure to keep each other warm.
Delsea Drive-in Theatre
