As time passes and life gets in the way, we fall into the habit of our day-to-day routine. We are pulled in a million directions, so we find it easiest to put our relationship on the back burner, figuring they are most likely to understand. However, this winter it is time to rekindle the flame that brought you together in the first place. We have put together a list of some of the most romantic spots New Jersey has to offer.

Liberty State Park, located in Jersey City, is a green oasis accompanied by the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There are miles of walkways, ferry rides and kayak tours.

Cape May is the perfect place to jumpstart or rekindle a romance. The entire city is a National Historic District, with 600 preserved Victorian buildings. With its adorable B&B’s, outstanding restaurants and special events all year ‘round, there is something for everyone. The Cape May Lighthouse provides views across the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean.

The Delsea Drive-In Theatre, located in Vineland, NJ, is the ideal place to snuggle with your significant other. Cuddle up beneath the stars and enjoy two screens, double feature and the tremendous snack stand.

High Point State Park located near Wantage Township in Sussex County, within the Skylands Region of northwestern New Jersey, United States, near the border with New York State. There are 50 miles of trails within the park; you can hike to the monument marking the state’s summit.

There is a rumor that if you and your significant other hold hands and walk three times around Passion Puddle, located at Rutgers University, you will get married.

The Wyckoff Gardens, on the corner of Godwin Avenue and Crescent Avenue, is a very quiet and beautiful spot. From its new Rose garden to the ponds and wildlife, you will experience absolute serenity as you feel nature surround you.
