Outdoor Adventuring
Reach new travel heights at High Point State Park in Sussex. Start your weekend by ascending to High Point Monument – situated 1,803 feet above sea level at the summit of Kittatinny Ridge, it marks the tallest elevation in New Jersey. The park also offers 50 miles of trails for hiking and biking and well-stocked lakes and streams for fishing. When you’re ready to fall into bed exhausted, make it a sleeping bag! Individual and group campsites are available for reservation from April 1 through October 31. For even more happy camper opportunities, check out our full collection of campgrounds and RV parks.

Romantic Retreat
There’s just something about strolling hand-in-hand around a quaint destination that makes you fall in love all over again. This is where Lambertville enters the conversation for couples. Acclaimed as one of HGTV’s Most Charming Small Towns in America and “The Antiques Capital of New Jersey,” this riverside haven also boasts some of the region’s best arts and dining scenes. Local overnight accommodations are intimate, boutique and historic. Lambertville also happens to be one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly destinations in the state.


Golfer’s Getaway
It may not have golf in its name, but Renault Winery & Resort in Egg Harbor City definitely brings an “A” game. Its Vineyard National Golf Course offers 18 holes of championship play on manicured greens and fairways with challenging water and woods features and, of course, dramatic views of the vineyards. You can even spy the original vines planted over 150 years ago! After a lively round, sip and savor the winery’s award-winning varietals as you enjoy dinner in Taste 1864. Then retire to the sanctuary of your guestroom in Château Renault. Feeling out of the swing of things because one of you golfs and one doesn’t? Not a problem! We’ve curated seven perfect getaways for couples just like you.
