Experience Chocolate Lovers’ Weekend in Ocean Grove
1. Enjoy the Inn-Side Open House
Ocean Grove is known for its charming, Old World feel. In fact, our tree-lined streets boast the largest assemblage of authentic Victorian architecture in the nation. Ocean Grove was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and the New Jersey State Register of Historic Places in 1977. Today, nothing exemplifies that history better than our historic inns.
During Chocolate Lovers’ Weekend, visitors can peek inside properties and explore the grounds. You’ll also enjoy chocolate treats like candies, cookies, cakes, and cocktails. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
2. Hunt for Hearts
Are you in the mood for a little retail therapy? Head to Ocean Grove’s Main Avenue. You can shop for clothing, jewelry, home goods, and one-of-a-kind items. Plus, hearts will be hidden in various stores; collect as many as you can and earn prizes.
After you get your shopping done, pamper yourself with a trip to the spa. From massages and facials to chocolate-infused treatments, these facilities have everything you need to unwind. While you’re there, think about where you’d like to go for dinner. Local eateries like SeaGrass Restaurant and The Starving Artist offer special menus during Chocolate Lovers’ Weekend, so you can stop in for a decadent and delicious meal.
Tip: Take a quick walk or drive to Asbury Park for even more dining options! Our neighboring town offers a variety of goodies at these dessert shops.
