Jersey Shore Towns Named Best Boardwalks for Food in America
Three Jersey Shore famous wooden walkways earned nation recognition for their fabulous food. The Food and Drink website,The Daily Meal, listed the 31 Best Boardwalks for Food in America.
Coming in at number three is Wildwood, followed by Atlantic City at number four. Ocean City came in at number fifteen. The list relied heavily on social media posts, quantity of restaurants, variety and quality of food.
The Daily Meal mentioned the following Jersey Shore Boardwalks:
#3 Wildwood- With heavy Philadelphia culinary influences, the Wildwood Boardwalk food scene is bursting with fried and gourmet options alike. Head to Curly’s for their signature fries or mosey on down to Douglass Fudge’s delicious sweet shop. With spots like Philly’s own Chickie’s and Pete’s making a name for themselves on the boards, it will be hard to choose where you’d like to eat first. Just make sure you watch the tram car, please!
#4 Atlantic City- Casino lovers can meander into any of the casino’s high-end restaurants for a gourmet experience, but this historical site has a ton of beach food everyone can afford. The oldest and longest of all the boardwalks in the U.S. has been dubbed the "Salt Water Taffy Capital of the World." James Candy Company sells their signature taffy in souvenir boxes and by the bucket. And while the view isn’t much to take in, fans of battered food will won’t mind once they’re nibbling on fried Oreos and fried pickles from Vanina’s Ice Cream.
#15 Ocean City- If you're looking for a classic boardwalk dining experience, there are a ton of places you can casually stop by on the Ocean City Boardwalk. Take a walk a little behind the boardwalk for a seafood dinner at Spadafora’s and you’ll be dining on fresh dockside seafood. Kohr’s Frozen Custard at the Jersey Shore Boardwalk is home to many sweet-tooth-pleasing treats, including flavors like cotton candy and orange cream. It's perfect for cooling down on a hot day!
All good choices. What's your favorite Boardwalk food?
