Try A New restaurant
What better time than Valentine's Day should you and your significant other (or family!) go outside your comfort zone and tryout new food?
We recommend VELO in Toms River, The Poached Pear and River Market in Point Pleasant Beach , or Kate & Ally's in Forked River.
Skate in Winding River Park
Ice skating is a great way to break the ice (pun intended) on a first date or enjoy a special evening with your special someone.
Grab some hot chocolate afterward to warm up, or head over to a nearby bar or restaurant to continue Valentine’s Day festivities.
