Travel's Best Summer Foods 2014

Summer is the best time for vacations and staycations, and what’s foremost on our minds while enjoying both? Food! But not just any food – we’ve pulled together a list of foods that scream "summer" and the restaurants in iconic summer destinations that prepare them best: juicy burgers at Le Tub in Hollywood, FL; fresh lobster at Beach Plum Restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard, MA; lip-smacking barbecue at Southern Soul Barbeque on St. Simons Island, GA, and more.

We've tapped the expertise of foodies, food photographers, food writers and TV hosts that know a thing or 2 about great food – including Diva Q/BBQ competitor and TV host of BBQ Crawl, Danielle Dimovski; food photographers Peden+Munk; chef and TV co-host (Breaking Borders) Michael Voltaggio; Eater.com editor, Amy McKeever; TV hosts Andrew Zimmern (Bizarre Foods) and more.

Meet all of the advisors and see what delicious summer foods made our list. And we know that we couldn’t possibly include all of the great foods around the nation, so head over to our Fan Favorites page and tell us which summer foods should be added to our Travel’s Best Summer Foods.
