New Jersey Sports & Outdoors

  • football / Soccer

    well upon coming to NJ USA from Madrid Spain, this is the first thing I did, and here I grew up American. Just got a photo from an old High School buddy and memories came back so nice.this is for the memories of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Playing Soccer in New Jerseyand following the great New York Cosmos from the NASL at Giants Stadium, East...

  • New Jersey Devils

    Congratulations to the New Jersey Devils on winning the Stanley Cup!Check out their official webpage for more info. Home games are played in the Continental Airlines Arena, The Meadowlands, Secaucus, NJ.

  • Fishing in NJ is World Class

    Fishing in New Jersey is a year round opportunity. During the summer, warm gulfstream water flows close enough to our shore to bring nutrient rich water to our coast. The ultimate prize for your efforts is the elusive Blue Marlin. During the months of July, August and September many Palegic species like the Blue Marlin will venture in as close to...

  • The Delaware RIver

    The Delaware River, which serves as the border between New Jersey and Pennsylvania, provides outdoors-oriented residents of the Garden State with plenty of opportunites for fun. These include rafting, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Much of the river bordering the northwestern part of New Jersey lies within the Delaware Water Gap National...

  • The Meadowlands

    The Meadowlands sports complex is comprised of a football stadium that is shared by the New York Jets and New York Giants football teams and the Metrostars soccer team, an arena that is shared by the New Jersey Nets basketball team and the New Jersey Devils hockey team, and a horse racing track that features races with both thoroughbreds and...

  • Go bowling!

    In the cold winter months, we usually go bowling at least once a year. Last year Anna was finally big enough to roll the ball down the lane. She had a great time and we did too. You have to like a sport where the whole family can participate at the same time, and where you can drink beer and eat food while you are doing it! The place where we go to...

  • Snowtubing at Campgaw!

    Campgaw Mountain is a little ski area with some killer snowtubing! Campgaw is great for beginners. It's a very small mountain with only 2 "trails" so to speak. They give lesons not only for skiing, but for snowboarding as well. Here is where I had my 1st ski experience, I was awful! I never thought I would ever be able to ski (I did learn...

  • Mountain Creek Water Park

    A fun way to spend a hot summer day (we played hookie from work!) Mountain Creek, formerly called Action Park, has tons of waterslides, rafting rides, cliff diving, a wave pool and my personal favorite "High Anxiety", a tube rides that washes you through an enormous funnel and spits you out into a pool. There are lockers for your stuff and some...

  • Giants Stadium

    Ironically, both of New York's NFL football teams (the Giants and Jets) play at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Before this bit of irony, the Giants used to play at New York's Yankee stadium and the Jets played at Shea Stadium, also home to baseball's New York Mets. In 1987, after the Giants won the Super Bowl, there...

  • Roosevelt Park

    Metuchen's Roosevelt Park is a great place for families, couples, joggers, bikers and anyone who likes the great outdoors in the New York suburbs of northern New Jersey. The park has two sections. In the first, there is an ampitheatre where they do excellent family productions such as Peter Pan, Pinocchio, and the like. There are also some...

  • Continental Airlines Arena

    The New Jersey Nets are one team the state can call its own. The Nets are a basketball team and the Devils are an NHL hockey team. At least in terms of sport franchises, New Jersey is asserting itself over the two large cities just outside its borders.

  • Beach access for fishing and dune buggys

    Vehicle access is allowed at the south end of the beach for those vehicles with appropriate tires for the sand. Many people take their vehicles out on the beach and surf fish from there. A permit is required for access.

  • Skiing in New Jersey

    We get a lot of snow here (especially this past winter!) If you are in NJ in the winter I would recommend skiing at Hidden Valley. It is not as well known as Vernon Valley, but I prefer it. Shorter lift lines and less crowded. Vernon Valley is not worth it to me because I like to get a lot of runs in for the price of my lift ticket!!Try to ski...

  • Canoeing Calm Waters

    Long ago, canoeing was an important means of transportation for the tribes that inhabited New Jersey. If you are in the mood for some real peace and quiet, take a canoe out into the Pine Barrens. The Wading River is especially peaceful and you don't need any experience. Many places will rent you a canoe. I personally prefer a kayak as they are less...

  • Horses in Howell

    If you are in the Shore area, nearby Howell has many horse farms, and you can go horseback riding. I went to Circle A where a guide takes you through beautiful Allaire State Park. You get a crash course in commands and off you go! It's really a lot of fun and no experience is necessary. There are many stables, you will notice them as you drive...

  • Go boating between New Jersey and New...

    When you get on a boat in New Jersey you could go to New York if your boat is able to withstand the waves. If not it's still possible to get pretty close to New York and have some nice views. But beware, water can change fast on you be sure to get weather updates.And if you decide to go fast on the water take a good look around for wreckage or...

  • Go fish from a boat

    Across the New Jersey shore, you can have a great time fishing. You can hire a boat or be lucky like us and have an uncle that has one.We aren't experienced fishers and didn't catch a lot but had good fun.Score (if you can say that for fishing) Niki's uncle 0, Niki 1 crab !?!? well a boat and a fishing rod should do...maybe some suntan lotion to...
