Coney Island

Famous seaside amusement area with iconic roller coasters, boardwalk, beach, and annual hot dog eating contest.

Tips from the community

For more than a century, spectators have gathered at the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in Coney Island to watch Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, but this year they will gather steps away at Maimonides Park to see competitive eaters battle for a yellow mustard belt. Last year, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut set a new world record eating 75 hotdogs and Miki Sudo ate 48.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Fans must sign up for free tickets and observe local Covid-19 guidelines, or they can watch the women’s competition telecast live on ESPN3 and the ESPN App and the men’s competition live on ESPN.

Summer isn't complete without a trip to Coney Island. Take a stroll on the boardwalk, enjoy frosty beverages while admiring the ocean, and take a dip or two in the water. Don't forget to ride the Cyclone and Wonder Wheel before grabbing a hot dog at Nathan's Famous.
