Romantic beach date.  It’s pretty lively with good tunes and excellent variety of people to gander at.  Feel the sand between your toes and listen to the waves crash as you stare into the oceans of your lovers eyes.

Ideal for summer.  Ok for late fall or early spring

TIP:    Gay friendly.  The beach on the far left side is the gay section.  Tops optional as well

PRICE:   Free with unlimited subway card.

If you don’t have a car, you can take the A train to the end of the line, and then a bus that drops you in front of the beach. You can also take a ferry from Pier 11 in Manhattan or Brooklyn Army Terminal, which offers a more scenic ride and is priced the same as a subway ride ($2.75 one-way as of this writing). The ferry docks at the Rockaway ferry station and from there, there is a free bus transfer to the beach.

Brooklyn Bridge 01
Brooklyn Bridge – photo to remember!!

Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge is a must.  Its a national historical landmark!  The architecture is stunning and the views jaw dropping.  It is such a cute outing to share with someone special.  There is a special walkway just for pedestrians and this wooden marvel is meant to be trodden upon.  So cross history and then have an ice cream in Brooklyn.  If you don’t wanna walk back you can take the subway or hop on the ferry for an addition $2.75.  Ferry Info

The bridge is 1.39 miles so expect about an hour to cross.  That’ll give you time to meander and to take some photos.

TIP:  The bridge is less crowed at night and very safe.  It doesn’t close until midnight.
