Brooklyn is known for its beautiful historic architecture, world-class museums, and amazing restaurants. While you're in town, visit the elaborate brownstones throughout Bedford-Stuyvesant, listen to live music in Williamsburg, or relax in one of the parks around Fort Greene.
Be sure to make time for some of these must-see attractions and destinations as well:
-Williamsburg: This area has the fastest growing arts scene in the country, with a number of amazing art galleries and live music venues popping up almost every month.
-Prospect Park: One of the biggest parks in Brooklyn, this is a great place to spend a warm day with the family.
-Brooklyn Botanical Gardens: These Japanese gardens featuring immaculately kept flowers are one of the most popular destinations in the borough.
-Greenpoint: A throwback to old Europe, this neighborhood has the second largest concentration of Polish people in the country, with a mixture of English and Polish spoken throughout the area.
As one of the biggest cities in the country, it's no surprise that there a number of major events and festivals that take place here throughout the year. Celebrate Brooklyn's proud literary history at the Brooklyn Book Festival in September, watch more than 40 bands perform throughout Williamsburg and Greenpoint at the Northside Festival in July, or attend the world-famous Coney Island Mermaid Parade in June.
