Sandbar restaurantThis recommendation borders on travesty, I know. At all other turns New England clam is the undefeated King Kong of the chowder arena. Manhattan clam chowder has long been the redheaded stepchild of soups: overlooked, underappreciated—even scorned. And often rightly so.

Photo by Master Sgt. Mark C. Olsen/U.S. Air Force/New Jersey National GuardBoaters in New Jersey should be well familiar with the Jet Star, the iconic roller coaster that used to jut out over the Atlantic from off Casino Pier in Seaside Heights.

This One Might Make it to Valhalla
