One of the greatest summer destinations during any New York trip is the world-famous Coney Island. Equipped with everything any family could possibly want, including amusement parks, carnival games, the beach, and even a minor league baseball team, Coney Island is an incredibly well visited location welcoming millions of visitors each year.

Some of the greatest amusement parks in the area are Luna Park, Dreamland, and Kiddie Park. Three rides in particular have found their way to the National Register of Historic Places. These rides are the Wonder Wheel, the Cyclone, and the Parachute Jump.

If you’re visiting the island on the Fourth of July, you’re in luck, because each Fourth of July Coney Island hosts the world famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Though, no matter when your New York trip brings you here, you must have a Nathan’s hot dog regardless, as it is where the company originates, and the hot dogs are delicious!
