Brooklyn Tours

Once upon a time, Brooklyn Tours might not have been that popular. But, the new and improved borough offers quite a lot of cultural value for the casual tourist. It’s now not only a safe place to visit, it's also quite swanky. Already home to Coney Island and the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, Brooklyn also plays host to a number of other cultural events. If you arrive in the summer, check out the Coney Island Mermaid Parade or the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival. Or, if you find yourself in there during Labor Day, take part in the Carnival. The truth is that there are always things to do regardless of the season. This borough has been drawing young professionals and artists from across the state and country, creating a micro-melting pot of talented fun-lovers. So, grab a piece of pizza and stroll down the street in search of fun and games. It's what to do in Brooklyn!
