As anyone who is married and has children knows, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers. Luckily, in New Jersey, there are plenty of places where you can celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family event. Here are two that involve animals as well as fond memories.
At Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, kids 12 and under can get free admission by bringing a handmade valentine for one of their rescued animals.
The cards brought will be exhibited in the Maison de la Nature for the pleasure of all!
When you get there, be sure to check in with the Nature Center front desk staff and they’ll make sure the residents know you’re sending them love!

If you want to go to 10 Lil’ Acre Rescued Animal Farm in Old Bridge, it’s going to be a Valentine’s Day celebration.
According to their Facebook page, you can roast marshmallows and make s’mores by their bonfire. You can also feed and pet the rescued animals with a provided food bag.
Children can also take photos during a photo shoot with the horses for Valentine’s Day.
For an additional fee, pony rides, hot chocolate and homemade treats for pets will be available
Plus, for ages 21 and up, there will be wine tasting with appetizers throughout the day for $10.
