Brooklyn Sightseeing Destinations
1. Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most iconic structures in the world and a great place to start your sightseeing tour. It’s a quintessential New York landmark, and you can cross it on foot or hire a car service for a quick ride. Hop off in DUMBO on the Brooklyn side to enjoy unrivaled views of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and delicious dining.
2. Coney Island
Coney Island is the hottest spot on Brooklyn’s shoreline and home to the famous Coney Island Cyclone wooden roller coaster. Once your car service drops you off, you can have a light lunch at Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs, enjoy the thrilling rides and attractions at Luna Park, or simply walk the boardwalk to take in all of the sights and sounds of the ocean. It’s best visited in summer and easily accessible via the subway or taxi.
3. Prospect Park
Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s equivalent to Central Park. This sprawling attraction is home to all sorts of nature trails, walking paths, and the Ravine—one of the few remaining indigenous forests in New York City. You can spend an entire day exploring attractions, including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, or step outside of the park to the Brooklyn Museum.
