Cuisine of the East Coast
Most international travelers might mistakenly think that the local cuisine in the United States is just burgers and fries. Within the U.S., many areas hold a strong tradition of local dishes. The East Coast has several cities that hold a proud food culture. For instance, the food scene in Charleston enjoys a heavy influence of spices from colonial trade routes, as well as fresh seafood that is caught daily. Some of the typical traditional dishes found in Charleston include roasted oysters, garlic crab, and shrimp and grits.
For some real southern food, travelers should visit Atlanta. This city has been continuously named the number one food scene in the South. From Paschal's famous fried chicken to Fat Matt's Rib Shack's barbecue, travelers will not leave the city hungry. Likewise, Philadelphia has been ranked as one of the cities with the best food scene in the entire United States. Home of the iconic Philly Cheesesteak, the city has much more to offer visitors. Some well know local grub is the bacon grease popcorn at The Khyber Pass Pub and the crab fries at Chickie and Pete's. There's a thriving Italian market, filled with produce stalls, cheese stores, chocolate, and family-owned restaurants.
Art and culture is easy to find
Being one of the most prominent landing points for migrants and travelers from all over the world, it should come as no surprise that the East Coast of the US has more art and culture than one person could possibly hope to see in a lifetime. New York alone has literally thousands of art galleries and theaters spread out across the state, many of them free or very affordable. Art lovers should not leave the East Coast without visiting MOMA, the Museum of Modern Art, home to some of the most iconic art exhibits in the world. Gavin Brown's Enterprise is another great option for art lovers, with works from talents such as Urs Fischer, Laura Owens, and Rob Pruitt.
New York aside, Boston is home to one of the most unique cultures along the East Coast. Shaped by the large number of European (predominantly Irish) migrants who arrived on the shores of the East Coast throughout the 19th century, Boston has many fantastic festivals (their St. Patrick's Day parade is one of the largest on the entire planet), as well as its own unique slang, and is well worth a visit for culture-lovers.
Nightlife along the Atlantic
Party enthusiasts will have no problem finding places to shake it loose along the East Coast, home to some of the most well-renowned clubs and parties in the world. Look no further than Miami, where the parties are wild, varied, and with a red-hot Latin flair. This is not a city that values a subtle look; going out in Miami in jeans and t-shirt will mean you could be spending the evening outside of the clubs. However, if this is more your thing, head to Baltimore in Maryland, home to fantastic dive bars, rock venues, and Irish pubs for every stage in the evening!
Where to head for a day excursion
The coast offers some of the most well-known cities in the world, and a few of the most important ones in the United States. The city of Washington D.C., capital of the United States of America, is one of the best metropolitan cities to visit on the East Coast. From memorials and historical monuments, diverse neighborhoods, and world-famous museums, the city is full of interesting attractions for travelers to enjoy and learn more about the history of the U.S. Or head to the city of Boston, one of the oldest municipalities in the United States, founded back in 1630. The city not only is full of historical monuments, but it is also home to some of the best sports teams in the nation. Travelers could catch a Bruins hockey game, a Red Sox baseball match, or even a New England Patriots football game while visiting Boston.
