Last week Coney Island opened it's doors to the public for the season, so my friend and I decided to go and check it out. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it there. Despite the wind, it was a beautiful day. Bright blue skies and not too busy. For those wanting to go on all the rides, you'll probably want to wait a couple of weeks for all of them to open. I'm not a huge ride person, so I quite appreciated that it wasn't too crowded. I was also surprised by how clean the beach looked. Judging by the dirtiness of New York, I wasn't expecting great things!
We stopped for lunch at a place called Applebee's, which was a lot like TGI Fridays. It was fine, but nothing special at all. We did share a Churro & S'mores dessert though which was yummy!
