Stuff to Do in Bergen County

People considering a move to Bergen County ask what kinds of things there are to do. A better question might be, what’s not to do?

Many families pick Bergen County for its excellent schools and child-friendly communities, but activities exist for people of all ages and interests. There is something for everyone in this ideal area of Northern New Jersey.

Bergen County Recreation:

Located just west of New York City, the lush green terrain of Bergen County offers plenty of ways to stay healthy with outdoor exercise and recreation in county and state parks. Go for a hike in the Ramapo Mountain State Forest in Mahwah up north, or stroll in Palisades Interstate Park for stunning views from those famous cliffs on the west bank of the Hudson River. For beach lovers, Bergen County is located within convenient day-trip distance to the pleasant Jersey shore.

Bergen County Shopping:

Some of the New York Metropolitan Area’s best shopping can be found in Bergen County, which attracts shoppers throughout the region. The Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus is the largest mall in the state, with more than 300 upscale shops and boutiques. Smaller specialty stores cater to diverse ethnicities, races and religions, whose presence also creates an incredible variety of delicious cooking ingredients to sample at local markets.

Bergen County Dining:

In addition to fresh food markets, a wide range of options is available for those who prefer not to cook at home. Choices range from fine dining to family-style restaurants and classic delis for eating on the go. The ethnic diversity of Bergen County ensures an exciting variety of flavors to enjoy, with American, Asian, European, and Latin cuisine especially well represented.

Bergen County Sports and Entertainment:

Sports and entertainment fans flock to the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford. The facility houses the new Meadowlands Stadium, home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets football teams beginning in 2010, and the Izod Center, an indoor arena for the New Jersey Nets basketball team. The arena also features concerts by stars like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and U2.

Bergen County Culture:

Culture thrives at institutions like the Bergen Performing Arts Center, where top names in ballet and jazz perform, and at the Bergen Museum of Art & Science. For something educational, young people will love a visit to the New Jersey Children’s Museum, or a trip to one of the well-maintained historical sites that tell the county’s fascinating story. The Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey at Teterboro Airport makes a wonderful activity for the whole family.

Bergen County is a place where everyone can live healthy, learn and have fun.
