Trip Planner: USA / New York State / Brooklyn / Coney Island
Wander the boardwalk, lounge on the beach, or grab a bite to eat at a waterside cafe when you visit Coney Island. This arts organization on a Brooklyn peninsula hosts museums, arcades, and sideshow-type establishments. Hop on an amusement park ride, like a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, or carousel for a classic regional experience. This conglomeration of beachfront attractions retains its air of nostalgia thanks to the remnants of the tourist industry that powered its development. Before you head to Brooklyn, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Brooklyn day trip planner, to make sure you see all that Brooklyn has to offer, including Coney Island.

If you are interested in a nice walk along the beach, then I recommend you visit off season—during the first week of February, for example. Not crowded. Sunny. Delightful. Restrooms are open!
The boardwalk is great. I wish there was some shade on the boardwalk but it was a nice walk. The beach is quite dirty but good if you cannot go to any other beach outside of NYC.
