Real slice of NY! Good mix of rides, eats and drinks. Diverse, friendly environment. Park a few blocks away and save big time on parking.

What can I say, you can't beat Coney Island. The food, from casual to elegant, is outstanding. The amusement and entertainment are unique and inimitable.

First time visitors to Coney Island. We enjoyed the New York Aquarium, a meal at Nathan's Famous and a nice long stroll up and down the boardwalk. Very nice!
