Love is in the air when you visit one of the county’s romantic bed and breakfasts along the Delaware River. Savor the panoramic view or wander hand-in-hand along the towpath, where you might also fall in love with an historic river town.
In Frenchtown, mingle with cycling enthusiasts or stop off at one of the delightful neighborhood cafes. Frenchtown is also a great place to peruse the antique stores and art galleries, where there’s an almost unlimited variety of jewelry, ceramics, paintings and sculpture.
Since you’re so close to the river, why not rent a canoe and do a little sightseeing from the water, perhaps stopping off at the historic Prallsville Mills near Stockton. A former mill complex turned cultural center, the site offers a full roster of concerts, exhibits and lectures. Because of their picturesque location by the Delaware and Raritan Canal Park, the mills are also a favorite wedding spot.
The park extends for miles and is a great place for canoeing, bicycling, fishing and horseback riding.
If you’d like something cozy, there’s nothing more romantic than a balloon ride, especially the champagne toast upon landing. The best time to fly is at dawn or dusk. The images are fleeting, but the memories will last forever.
