Move over Manhattan, because there are some amazing things to do in Brooklyn! It's time to show this borough some love as I highlight some of the most exciting things to do in Brooklyn. As a born and raised New Yorker (who now lives in Jersey, shh!), Manhattan was the go-to spot for all things shopping, dining, and entertainment-related. Nevertheless, in the past few years, a shift has occurred with a sudden interest in all things Brooklyn! From the plethora of restaurants to its iconic landmarks, there are a ton of fun-filled things to do in Brooklyn. Here are a few of my favorite things!
1. Brooklyn Bridge
There is no denying that a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge is truly an amazing experience. Built to connect Manhattan to Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge not only serves those commuting by car but also those traveling by foot or bike. So whether you are in the mood for walking or biking, a visit to the Brooklyn Bridge is hands down one of the most rewarding things to do in Brooklyn. The views as you make you way across the bridge suspended over the East River are pure perfection especially on a sunny day. Don’t forget your camera!
