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. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Brooklyn fast, fun, and easy.

  • In all the years I’ve been coming to New a York, I’ve never been to Coney Island. We took the subway - it was so easy to get there. Once off the subway it’s easy to get to the beach & the fun fair...  more »
  • We visiting recently, late December. Obviously most of it closed, but we had a good few hours at the aquarium which has a cool shark experience and sea lion show. Wandered down the very quiet...  more »
  • This is a great place to enjoy amusement rides and pharmaceuticals. Just don't try both at the same time unless you have a strong stomach!  more »

  • Quiet and clean beach. Not over crowded this time of year. Give Luna Park a visit while you're there or hit up Its Sugar! or Nathan's Famous.
  • A really fun get away from the buzzing city streets. It’s nice to see the ocean when you’re caught up in the city life. Great beach day here, catch a swim or a tan. Come for the ice cream or the fun rides!
  • Has fun rides and extreme ones like the “Luna 360” and how it even has kiddie rides for you and your kids to enjoy it’s cleanliness is not as great but it’s an amazing place to hang with your Family and especially with the Friday Fireworks it’s an amazing place in a place where you won’t really ever know there is an amusement park in
  • The highlight of a trip to Coney Island is Nathan’s. Beside that it’s pretty dirty and way over priced. Looked around at the restaurants and they sounded good with clams and different types of Mexican food, but it all looked too greasy. A ride on the cyclone or wonder wheel would be nice and not that expensive. But beside those bucket list items, this trip is a long train ride from the city and not really worth it
  • This place is so trashy, but so much fun. If the place wasn’t so dirty, I’d give it a 5. 100% worth a visit when in town. It’s got everything from Toms diner, sugar shop, arcades and a load of theme park rides. Just avoid the public toilets at all costs, the worst I’ve ever seen.
