THE 13 AMERICAN BEACHES YOU NEED TO HIT THIS SUMMER
Coney Island, New York
OK, so the sand here is probably better known as the setting for the last scene of The Warriors than any actual beach activity. But there may not be a more classic American beach in the summer. The famous amusement park aside, Coney is also home to the Brooklyn Cyclones’ MCU Park, one of the best places to catch a game in the minors. Summer is also when the newest pieces in the Coney Art Walls are unveiled, giving a new twist to one of the country’s best destinations for street art. Of course, there is also the super bowl of Gluttony on July 4th that is the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. And the famous Cyclone roller coaster, which, like Coney Island itself, might be a little dated but is always a good time.
