Brooklyn, New York

From historic urban landscapes to modern cultural experiences, Brooklyn offers a diverse itinerary for every traveler’s preference.

Enjoy a roller coaster ride, a visit to the beach, or a famous Coney dog at Coney Island. Walk or bike over the historic Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn Heights for a stroll along the Promenade and its breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.

For a taste of culture, explore one of the world’s best Egyptian collections at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Catch an opera, theater production, or concert performance at the world-famous Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Nature lovers must take a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for gorgeous exhibits of roses, orchids, bonsai trees and more. Prospect Park is great for families, and boasts 90 acres of wide, open fields for baseball and soccer, trails for running, bike and horseback riding; summer concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell; an all-season ice skating rink at the LeFrak Center; and several playgrounds. The park also has a small zoo with a duck pond and huge aviary.

While Brooklyn has plenty to do in its own right, the rest of New York City is just a short taxi or subway ride away. First timers won’t want to miss Manhattan’s Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the Bronx Zoo, and the Staten Island Ferry.
