New Jersey is a great place for dating. There are so many exciting opportunities for single men and women in the Garden State! Whether you're in the twenty-one age bracket or a bit further along on the journey of life, there are places to go and things to do and this article explores some of the more popular first date ideas and romantic opportunities available in New Jersey.
Does the fast-paced night life appeal to you? Are you attracted to the hip shore area? How about a woodsy, quaint river town? What about a Victorian seaside area? All of these scenarios can be enjoyed with a date in New Jersey. These are only a handful of ideas for dating hot spots in the Garden State.
Our first glimpse of the happening Jersey Shore examines a popular summer tourist destination: the Point Pleasant boardwalk. This area has fun activities for everyone. For people of all ages who want nonstop action, check out Jenkinson's Pavilion and Martell's Tiki Bar. In the warmer months, the Tiki Bar is an open air restaurant, bar, and live entertainment venue. It sits on a long pier that has unobstructed views of the beach and ocean. Music ranges from contemporary to reggae. This place is open from early afternoon until late at night and features an awesome variety of food and drinks. The Pina Coladas are superb! Jenkinson's also has great food and drinks, including a raw seafood bar. The night club is more for the younger crowd with a DJ or live bands. Jenkinson's also sits right on the beach with killer views of the ocean and "palm trees." This is a populardating hotspot for couples that enjoy dancing to club music or watching live bands. The Boardwalk provides the opportunity for a romantic moonlit walk after dining and dancing and it's long enough so that you and your date can get away from the crowds that generally congregate around the main attractions.
A great place to go to get back to nature is Lambertville, an artsy little town along the Delaware River. It features antiques stores, art galleries, the Raritan/ Delaware tow path (a walking and biking trail), and fine cuisine. Every spot in this town is within walking distance and right across the river from New Hope, Pennsylvania, another artistic town. You can actually walk over the bridge to get to New Hope-that is if your date likes walking! Great places to dine include the Lambertville Station and particularly Lilies on the Canal, which serves very hip concoctions. Sample some great local beers at the Riverhorse Brewery. Or you can enjoy some spirits on the veranda at Left Bank Libations, part of the Inn at Lambertville.
If you have a hankering for a slower-paced seaside trip, try visiting Cape May. There are various things to do on a day trip, including shopping, strolling the sand, visiting the Cape May Lighthouse, and catching a whale-watching boat ride. In the summer, the beach can't be beat! Get some fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants. Around Halloween, a great haunted walking tour is available through the "Boo-tique", a seasonal shop. Visit a dozen places where hauntings have been cited, including the famous Maycomber Hotel.
Some An exciting trip you and your date can plan is to Hoboken, right across from Manhattan. You can go by train or car (there's ample parking in a couple of roomy parking garages.) Lots of restaurants/bars have outdoor sidewalk seating during the warmer months. A great place to catch some Mexican food is the restaurant East L.A. Sangria abounds! There is also a wide variety of night life at the many clubs and bars, since this is a college town. Stevens Technical Institute, located right in the heart of Hoboken, has a beautiful campus with a bird's-eye view of the Manhattan skyline.
As you can see, New Jersey has a multitude of hot spots for dating. Whether you enjoy fast-paced night life or a casual walk by the Delaware River, New Jersey has it all.
