The Meadowlands has two very different meanings, depending upon your interests. If you have a taste for action, the award-winning MetLife Sports Complex won’t disappoint. If you’re a nature lover, the Meadowlands is the place to explore native wetlands, birds and other animals.
On the sporting side of things, there’s never a dull moment, starting with the new MetLife Stadium that opened in the summer of 2010. It's where two NFL teams – the New York Jets and the 2008 and 2012 Super Bowl Champion New York Football Giants – play their home games.
And don’t forget fast-paced racing action at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. It's the scene of major concerts and many other family events including Disney on Ice, Ringling Bros. Circus, the Harlem Globetrotters and much more.
The Meadowlands Environment Center (2 DeKorte Plaza, Lyndhurst) is where to go when you need some down time.
The trails here offer short vacations into a world of cedar swamps, salt marshes and wetlands. More than 220 species of native birds and other small animals call the area home. Birdwatchers are especially keen on the egrets and blue herons that nest here.
