Coney Island offers an ideal summer respite from the hectic and steamy city. With nearly 3 miles of sandy beaches, Coney Island’s sunny skies and rolling waves make for the perfect getaway. If being active at the beach is more your idea of fun than just catching some rays, Coney Island also offers exciting recreation opportunities. With courts for beach volleyball, handball, and basketball as well as playgrounds and amusement rides, the beach and boardwalk can provide hours of entertainment.
Coney Island is also a great place to visit in the off-season. Check out the New York Aquarium, the Abe Stark Ice Skating Rink, or the MCU Park (formerly KeySpan Park) baseball stadium where you can see the minor league Mets (the Brooklyn Cyclones) play ball.
Additionally, don’t forget to keep a look out year-round for events at Coney Island. One major highlight is the AVP professional volleyball tournament in the summer, but other equally exciting happenings pop up all year.
Whether you’re a beach bum or a thrill-seeker with a day off, Coney Island is the perfect getaway.
