Five Things Tim Tebow Should Do in New Jersey: Fan's View

Yahoo Contributor Network

Nothing against the city of Denver, but there's a lot more to see and do in North Jersey.

Now that Tim Tebow will be playing his home games in "The Garden State," he should get familiar with some of the best sights and attractions in the area.

Here's a look at five things Tim Tebow should do in New Jersey now that he's a member of the New York Jets:

1) Attend a New Jersey Devils game: The Devils advanced to the second round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs with an epic road win over the Florida Panthers on Apr. 26.

New Jersey's victory propelled the team to the quarterfinals against the Philadelphia Flyers, and they have back-to-back home games at the PruCenter in New Jersey on May 3 and May 6. Tebow already showed his support to the New York Yankees when he attended a recent game, so he obviously enjoys hanging out at sporting events. The Devils would be a fine choice.

2) Eat at Grease Trucks: The food offered at Grease Trucks won't do much to help Tebow's chiseled physique, but it sure is delicious.

Grease Trucks, located on the College Ave. campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, has some of the most ridiculous sandwiches you'll find in the entire country.

What used to be a little-known secret quickly turned into a national sensation when Maxim magazine named Grease Truck's "Fat Darrell" sandwich as the best sandwich in the country. The sandwich comes complete with chicken fingers, french fries and mozzarella sticks inside of it.

3) Check out New Jersey State Museum: Tebow probably wouldn't be interested in gambling in Atlantic City, but he might enjoy a trip to the New Jersey State Museum.

This museum, located at 205 West State St. in Trenton, NJ, provides visitors with top-notch exhibitions, programs and publications to give an exploration of the cultural diversity of New Jersey's past and present.

4) Ride A Rollercoaster at Six Flags Great Adventure: Six Flags is fun for kids, but you're never too old to enjoy a great amusement park.

Tebow would definitely enjoy a great day of checking out this cool 2200-acre park that features amazing thrill rides and incredible attractions. The Dark Knight Coaster is one of the best in the country, and I'm sure Tebow would love it too. The park is located at 1 Six Flags Boulevard in Jackson, NJ.

5) Attend UFC event at the IZOD Center: The IZOD Center is hosting "UFC on Fox: Diaz vs Miller" on May 5, and it's sure to be one of the biggest events happening in New Jersey this year.

Tebow appears to be a UFC fan, as he recently tweeted UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub following his loss to Ben Rothwell at UFC 145. On Apr. 22, Tebow tweeted "@BrendanSchaub life is not about when you get knocked down but about having the perseverance to get back up. Proud of you brother #Heart."

What else should Tim Tebow do in New Jersey? Let me know in the comments.
