Location: Irondequoit, New York
Once known as the "Coney Island of Western New York," Seabreeze had become a popular tourist attraction as early as the 19th century. Located in northeastern Irondequoit where the Bay empties into Lake Ontario, it's best known today for the Seabreeze Amusement Park, Hot Dog Row, sandy white beaches, and spectacular sundowns.
If you happen to be in the neighborhood, you owe it to yourself to sample a nationally famous "white hot" at Don & Bob's or Bill Gray's or Vic's Place on hot dog row. Then treat the kids to a frozen custard cone at Abbott's. Tell 'em Cal Ripken's father lived at Sea Breeze while managing the Rochester Red Wings baseball team.
Built in 1920, the Seabreeze Jack Rabbit is today the nation's oldest continuously operated coaster.
