Brooklyn is one of the five boroughs of New York City and is known as a vibrant and ethnically diverse section of the city. Families often move from Manhattan to Brooklyn for a more family-friendly, spacious lifestyle. There are plenty of things to do in Brooklyn for the whole family, from the delights of the old-fashioned Luna Park fairground to peaceful Prospect Park.


1. Luna Park Coney Island

This historic park was once called the worlds largest playground. Times have changed since then, but Luna Park still offers a few thrill rides the whole family can enjoy. Spend your day in the nostalgic world of Coney Island, eating hot dogs and catching fairground rides such as the classic Cyclone Roller Coaster. On summer days, the park is home to street performers and even a small puppet theatre.
