Regardless of your calligraphy expertise, the art of the love letter is a swoon-inducing skill. If you aim to make an affectionate declaration, but are inclined to awkward prose, draft a vacation to remember with this week's Escape to J.D. Thompson Inn on New Jersey's shore.

Instead of publishing poetry, delight the object of your desire with a two-night stay for two in a superior room with a queen bed, Sundays through Thursdays ($149). Or, opt to visit the weekend of May 4 and 5, May 11 and 12, or June 1 and 2 and enjoy tea and sweets ($189).

The inn's myriad of parchment-worthy charms will surely enrapture your beloved. Built in 1823, the seven-guest room house is located in the quaint, historic town of Tuckerton, New Jersey. History buffs and romantics alike will admire the inn's classic Victorian-style architecture and antique furniture, while all guests can look forward to chef-prepared breakfasts like herb-sprinkled omelets or brown-sugar pancakes.

Those whose hearts yearn for sun and surf can frolic to nearby Long Beach Island, boasting 18 miles of Atlantic beach and a wildlife area. Or, stroll hand-in-hand along the Tuckerton Seaport boardwalk for an authentic shore experience. You'll fall in love with New Jersey's maritime heritage at the Baymen's Museum or visit with the decoy carvers and boat builders on the docks.

Sonnets for your sweetheart can distract from eating, but your stomach could use some love, too. Appease your appetite with a table for two at The Grapevine Restaurant and Lounge, where you'll savor Italian dishes like tender veal parmigana or linguine with local-clam sauce.

You don't need to be Shakespeare to have a way with words. Instead of prosaic vacations, pen an eloquent Escape to the New Jersey shore.

  • "As for the inn itself, it's lovely and full of antiques without being too cutesy. It's on the main street in Tuckerton, a sweet town that is within reach of Pine Barrens kayaking and hiking, 20 minutes from Atlantic City, and close to Long Beach Island."
