So let me be honest here.  I’m not really big on Valentines day.  I have no desire to sit in a packed over priced restaurant eating a meal at triple the normal price.  As much as I LOVE roses, I actually get annoyed when my husband sends them on Valentines Day. Such a waste of money.  I tell him, i’d love and appreciate them any other day, even the day before or after. It’s not that I don’t like romance and fun, but I think Valentines Day could be spent in other ways with your loved one.  So lets take a quick run through some fun date ideas right here in Monmouth County.
