Brooklyn Tickets & Tours

Once upon a time, a Brooklyn Tour might have been a questionable prospect. But, the new and improved borough of Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn during Labor Day, take part in the Carnival. The truth is that there are always things to do in Brooklyn, 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!

Money saving tips

  • Try to appear highly aware, confident, and undistracted. Don’t talk on your phone while walking to your hotel after a long night on the town.
