Looks like we are finally getting some good beach weather starting on Friday and hopefully lasting through Saturday until the thunderstorms begin. It’s time to plan for a beach or park outing! Coney Island, the Rockaways, Jacob Riis and Fort Tilden are the go-to beaches for Brooklyners and we’ve visited beaches within 90 minute drive from Brooklyn in all directions and still haven’t found a beach we prefer more than these. Fort Tilden, especially, can be less crowded than most beaches since it takes a long while to trek out to.
If you aren’t quite ready to go for the beach day (we know, the water is still very chilly!) then planning a picnic is the thing to do. Prospect Park will be mobbed this weekend. Maybe plan on something different. Here is a blog from L Magazine featuring the 7 best picinic spots in Brooklyn. Whatever you plan on doing, have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the sun! With the way the weather has been this year we can never be sure how many warm sunny days we’ll have.
