If you want a perfect long weekend getaway, or family fun in the city, Brooklyn is the borough to be in the Big Apple. Many movies have showed New York City and its neighbourhoods, but recently Brooklyn has emerged with its world-class architecture, activities, events, and unique spots to visit. From the iconic Brooklyn Bridge to museums and hot dog stands, Brooklyn has plenty of interesting sights. It's not all concrete and large buildings either, there are plenty of parks, art galleries and pop-up shops as well. Spend a few days in Brooklyn to learn about its diverse history -- as the most populated borough in New York, the people and culture here are truly vibrant.
There are dozens of things to do in Brooklyn, from fantastic art galleries, parks, and historical sights to museums and, of course, Coney Island. The most popular spot is the Brooklyn Bridge, a picturesque structure overlooking the East River and connecting Brooklyn with Manhattan. Afterward, the Brooklyn Bridge Park is ideal for stroll or a picnic, especially during summer or early fall when the foliage is at its best. For more adventures in nature, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Prospect Park, and Carroll Gardens are peaceful areas for exploring and soaking up local life.
For thrill-seekers and a little nostalgia, Coney Island is a fairground on the shore guaranteed to provides laughs, tasty foods, and lasting memories. Tuck into some cotton candy and ice cream, ride the roller coaster or simply relax on the beach.
Slightly calmer, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is great for the whole family, where adults and children can learn about the environment and animals. Another family-friendly activity is the Brooklyn Museum, where visitors can enjoy art, sculptures, film, and music. Elsewhere, the New York Aquarium is perfect to learn about underwater life and ecosystems; and for the brave members in your group -- see sharks!
In the evening, check out the iconic Brooklyn dive bars or distilleries, 'Hinterlands' and 'Do or Drive' are some of the highest-rated spots.
The best areas to stay include Fort Greene, Bedford Stuyvesant, and Coney Island. These Brooklyn neighborhoods have plenty of beautiful tree-lined streets, coffee shops and restaurants, and access to subway stations.
