Coney Island is one of Brooklyn's most famous summer getaway spots, internationally known for its wide public recreational beach, entertainment-packed boardwalk, and classic attractions. Visitors can explore the district's free-entry beach and boardwalk all year round, which stretches for more than three miles along the district's south coast. Midway games, side-show rides, and food vendors line the beach's famous boardwalk, including the original Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs stand. For additional admission fees or travel tickets, visitors can take a ride on the roller coasters and rides of Luna Park and Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, including the historic Cyclone roller coaster and one of the only eccentric roller rides in the world.
Nearby, the New York Aquarium hosts marine life exhibits, while MCU Park serves as the home ground for the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team. You can also enjoy a nutritious meal at nearby Kitchen 21.
