Cozy season is officially here. To celebrate the season, book a winter getaway at the Jersey Shore. 

The Jersey Shore is home to various getaways to help you beat the winter blues. These getaways allow you to relax by yourself or with family and friends. They're also close to home and offer the best rates. 

Let's look at four can't-miss Jersey Shore winter weekend getaways.

1. Girls' Weekend at a Premium Resort

Why wait until spring or summer to enjoy a weekend with the girls? Kick off the cozy season with a girls' weekend at a top-of-the-line Jersey Shore resort.   

Start your girls' weekend with a leisurely breakfast at Coastal Blue in Diamond Beach or Avalon Brew Pub in Avalon. Relax with the girls, treat yourself to mimosas and other breakfast-time favorites, and experience the crisp, clean, and serene ocean air as you catch up. 

Next, book a day of beauty at one of the Jersey Shore's premier spas to bond with your family and friends over mani-pedis and other treatments. 

From here, explore one of the exciting local attractions, like the Cape May Lighthouse, to see all the area offers. 

Many local attractions remain open during the cozy season. Ask your resort to give you personalized recommendations on things to do nearby. 

And, of course, through it all, reminisce and share stories with the girls and make memories together. 

2. Brewery, Winery, or Distillery Tour in Cape May

You don't have to be a brewmaster, wine aficionado, or master distiller to see how your favorite craft spirits are made. By booking a winter getaway in NJ, you'll be able to enjoy the best of all three. 

Take a tour of the Cape May Brewing Co., which features a tasting room and beer garden that are open daily. The brewery also hosts wintertime events. 

For those who prefer wine, plan a trip to any of these wineries:

To tour a distillery, visit Nauti Spirits. This Cape May farm-to-bottle distillery lets you tour its facilities and sample its spirits. It even gives you a souvenir shot glass to take home. 

3. Romantic Overnight Winter Getaway Weekend

Enjoy a couples' winter weekend getaway at a luxe resort to wine, dine, and unwind with your special someone. Before you go, if you stay at an ICONA property, you can romance your room by requesting chocolate-covered strawberries, a bottle of sparkling wine, and other upgrades. 

You can also take your special someone on a romantic overnight winter getaway this Valentine's Day. Book a Valentine's Day getaway package that includes activities like a gourmet dinner for two and piano entertainment. 

ICONA Resorts hosts Valentine's Day getaway events and specials at the Jersey Shore, as well as packages for many other holidays. Choose ICONA to make your getaway one your special someone will remember. 

4. Winter Family Getaway Weekend

Break up the family routine with a weekend winter getaway at the Jersey Shore. 

The holiday season is one of the most beautiful times to visit Cape May. The West Cape May Christmas Parade takes place on the first Saturday of December and sets the stage for the holidays. During the season, you'll also be able to enjoy breakfast with Santa, holiday-themed trolley rides, and tree-lighting ceremonies. 

There are plenty of reasons to plan a family getaway weekend at the Jersey Shore after the holiday season, too. 

ICONA Avalon hosts a Winter Wonderland during the weekends in the cozy season, including a synthetic ice-skating rink where you can lace up your skates and glide to your heart's delight. 

If you’re looking for a more educational activity, the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum is also open during cozy season. Here, you'll see an authentic World War II hangar and explore aviation and military history.

If you prefer fun and games over history, stop by the Silverball Retro Arcade, which is open year-round. Sometimes referred to as the "coolest place on earth," this arcade features over 150 classic pinball machines and games.
