Coney Island has been around for over 100 years and has been featured in TV shows, novels, films and theatrical plays. It is a popular destination for tourists from around the world and local New Yorkers visit for a fun day away from the hustle & grind of the city.
I went to Coney Island for the first time of Summer 2018 last week because my boyfriend was visiting and had never been to Coney Island. This would be our last time in NYC together (since I am moving to Johannesburg, where he lives -- yay to the end of long-distance) and I wanted him to see Coney Island before he left.
It was super fun and we spent the evening there eating, playing games and getting on rides -- he even won me a few stuffed animals (super competitive)!
No matter how old you are, Coney Island brings out your inner child and gives off a sense of nostalgia -- that's why it's a place that will never get old to me.
Here are a few photos we took while there, hope you enjoy!
If you're not living in NYC, I recommend checking out Coney Island if you're ever in the area.
Until next time,
