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.
