I am so excited that the Superbowl is being played here in my home state this year. You can feel the excitement in the air. Concerts and events are abundant.
Being from the Tri-State area, I am use to the fast paced lifestyle that surrounds me every day. If you plan on visiting for this event, be prepared! If you order food in a restaurant, you will usually have it in front of you within 10 minutes tops. If you go to a drive thru or fast food place, you will most likely have it in 2. I highly recommend you have pizza while visiting. Some of the best pizza in the USA is made here in the area. Look for the local pizzerias, not the chains.
If you're looking to listen to local sports on the radio, check out 660 AM or 101.9 FM for WFAN and 98.7 ESPN FM . Local news and weather can be found on 880 AM (traffic and weather on the 8s) or 1010 AM (has traffic and weather on the 1s)
For TV Sports there are too many stations to mention but the Superbowl itself will be on FOX 5 NY.
If you are staying in NJ for the Superbowl you can find many shopping malls and restaurants galore. There is no tax on clothing in NJ so be sure to shop. I highly recommend the Westfield Garden State Plaza on Rt. 17 in Paramus (Pa ram us). You will find some of the top stores in the area all under one roof. There are plenty of buses that will take you there.
Use mass transit if you are in the city. Its quicker and cheaper. Better yet, walk if you can.
Here is a fan guide to all of the entertainment that will be in the area:
If you need any more information Fagetaboutit! :)
Enjoy your stay!.
