The New Jersey Devils

<p>Newark is a great city for sports fans, even though New Jersey doesn't have many sports teams of its own. The New Jersey Devils, who have won the Stanley cup three times since 1995, are the only big league sports team that plays for the state of New Jersey. Since the Devils are the only team with an NJ on their jerseys, they are incredibly popular with the proud residents of the Garden State. If you're a fan of other sports, many of New York's teams have their home fields within New Jersey borders.</p>

Prudential Center

<p>Whether you'd like to catch a Devils hockey game or a performance by one of the biggest names in music, the Prudential Center stadium is the place to go for entertainment in Newark. Each year, there are over 200 concerts and special events at Prudential Center, making it the perfect place for a night out on the town. This state-of-the-art stadium is less than 10 years old and has been instrumental in revitalizing the downtown area. The success of the center has prompted a great deal of development in downtown Newark. New apartment buildings, retail centers, and restaurants are popping up all around the stadium, making it the center of a vibrant and rapidly growing part of the city.</p>

Branch Brook Park

<p>Newark may be a busy city and a part of one of the busiest metropolitan areas in the world, but there are still parts of Newark where nature reigns supreme. When it comes to outdoor fun, Branch Brook Park is a favorite among locals. It's been in use since 1896, making it the oldest county park in the country. Visitors can enjoy walking, biking, and playing sports, as well as trout fishing in the Branch Brook Park Lake. The park is especially beautiful in the spring, when more than 4,000 cherry trees start to bloom, prompting a springtime celebration you won't want to miss.</p>
