    Doughnuts

    That's right, I said doughnuts.

    If you and your Valentine both love sweets but have had it with heart shaped boxes of sub-par chocolates, why not bring home a box of doughnuts from one of Ocean County's second to none shops?

    A Uniquely Jersey Shore Dinner

    Sure, you can take your Valentine's Day date to a fancy restaurant and have any old dinner where there's more kinds of silverware on the table than actual food. Or you could take the fact that we're at the Jersey Shore and enjoy local specialties!

    From the best pizza places in the state to boardwalk delights, why not pass right by the dishes with unpronounceable names at a restaurant that you'll have to take out a home equity loan to afford and instead grab some authentic Shore grub?
