Located just miles from New York City, East Rutherford, New Jersey, is certainly not without its fair share of appealing attractions. Though it has the draw of the suburbs, it is home to some of the nicest sports venues in the country (as well as some of the most rabid fans), and with the Big Apple just a short distance away, a trip to the city is not out of the question as well.
The Meadowlands Sports Complex is located in East Rutherford, which contains a number of venues, but perhaps is most famously home to both the New York Jets and New York Giants. Two of the most storied franchises in the NFL, the two teams play their home games at MetLife Stadium, which was opened in 2010 to serve as a replacement to the outdated Giants Stadium. The beautiful complex hold more than 82,000 spectators and is one of the best in the league, and becomes the first cold-weather host of the Super Bowl in 2013.
In addition to the Giants and Jets, MetLife Stadium is also a premier concert venue. In its short life, the arena has been host to such acts as New Jersey natives Bon Jovi and the much-anticipated Hot 97 Summer Jam concert series.
Of course, the Meadowlands Sports Complex has other tenants as well. It is also home to the Meadowlands Racetrack, which has been a popular locale in the horse racing community since it opened in the mid 1970s. As a final draw, the complex includes the Izod Center as well, which is a well-known concert venue. The 20,000-seat arena has hosted everyone from Nickelback to Bruce Springsteen to the Dave Matthews Band.
The Giants and Jets aren't the only ones who play their home games in the area. The New Jersey Devils of the NHL and the New Jersey Nets of the NBA play at the Prudential Center in nearby Newark, which is always a great place to catch a game.
Whether you're looking to catch a game or a concert, East Rutherford has got you covered. A short drive from the city, with the charm of the suburbs, makes this Northeastern town a hub of entertainment and excitement.
