With tourist spots aplenty, Brooklyn is considered a tourist’s dream destination. Here’s what you’ll need to know if you ever get to visit!
First, you can’t visit Brooklyn without taking your time and admiring the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Brooklyn Bridge is an engineering marvel—especially considering how it’s made mostly of bricks. It is easily one of the most iconic landmarks in the area, so either try visiting in the off-season or prepare for the crowds. The architecture is worth the visit, but you also get a beautiful view of the neighboring structures.
You can’t go to the Brooklyn Bridge without dropping by the park!
Brooklyn Bridge Park
The Brooklyn Bridge Park has an area of a whopping 85 acres! Enjoy the fresh breeze and relax in the green grass while taking in all of New York. You even get a clear view of the Statue of Liberty while you enjoy an iconic Oddfellows ice cream cone.
The third one on the list has to be the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.
Visit Brooklyn Heights and get a breathtaking view of Downtown Manhattan, the East River, and even the Brooklyn mentioned above Bridge! You also get an idea of some historic architecture, giving you a taste of both old, timeless, and modern Brooklyn.
Next up, we have the alluring Brooklyn Botanic Garden:
If you’re more of the nature type and wanna relax, you can’t go wrong with going to a park. But if a park is too essential for you, then the botanical garden is for you! Not only do you get to immerse yourself in the beautiful greenery, but you also get a wide variety of fauna. You get to choose from the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, the Woodland Garden, and even the Herb Garden, among many others!
And surely you’ll have to come and see what’s up at Prospect Park!
Prospect Park is an even bigger space for doing all sorts of outdoor activities—sizing up at a whopping 526 acres! You get paths for running, biking, forest exploration, and even areas perfect for an afternoon picnic. And don’t forget to explore the Smorgasburg food festival they hold in the fall.
Last but definitely not least comes the Brooklyn Grange:
You’ll be surprised when you first witness it, but the Brooklyn Grange is the world’s largest rooftop soil farm. It’s not necessarily the biggest tourist spot you’ll find, but it’s definitely just as interesting as any. This 5.6-acre farm serves local restaurants and even holds tours on beekeeping, fungiculture, and other farm-related activities.
