For the quintessential New York (in summertime) experience, head to Coney Island to play the day away at the New York Aquarium, cruise the boardwalk, grab a sizzling hot dog and, if you play your cards right, even catch some beachside fireworks. Needless to say, Luna Park is also by far one of the best kids' amusement parks in town—and newbies, did we mention that it's right on the beach?
See below for our very favorite things to do around Coney Island during the summer months. It tops our list of amazing summer day trips to take with the kids. And never fear: If it's rainy, you can always hit up some of our favorite local indoor amusement parks.
