By Julie Alvin, Food & Wine

There are over 60 boardwalks dotting America's coastlines, ranging from iconic destinations that have lured seaside-goers for over a century (Coney Island, New York) to newer attractions like the Kemah Boardwalk, an amusement park built overlooking Galveston Bay outside of Houston. For those who also love boardwalk foods, advanced planning for summer trips to these tourist haunts can mean the difference between frozen fries or terrific meals that match the allure of the beach. Here, Food & Wine names America's best boardwalk food.
