We went to the Aquarium and decided to walk down the boardwalk to Brighton Beach. Loved walking in and out of the different shops and browsing all the Russian goods. Lots of stores and restaurants. Will definitely return!

Brighton Beach looks like time stopped there. All immigrants from USSR who still doesn't speak English. It's always noisy there and crowd. One of the good things there are good Russian stores.

I try to visit Brighton every time I visit Brooklyn. I love the little shops there with their authentic Russian food!!! The bakery is superb, could never say no to yummy cakes :))). The allover feeling is kind of weird though... It's like being back...More

Besides the lovely beach and boardwalk you have a little taste of Odessa and Moscow. Many russian restaurants and specialty food shops. Also do some shopping on Brighton Beach Ave. If you are lucky you may catch one of their street fairs. Enjoy.

While not quite as cheesy as Coney Island, Brighton Beach has nice sand and sea and a slew of Russian restaurants and nightclubs nearby.

We enjoyed time in the diverse cultures of other parts of Brooklyn, so were surprised at how negative the atmosphere was in Brighton Beach. We expected the Russian influence, but were taken aback at the hostile reception we got everywhere, in shops and restaurants. It's...More

Get off Brighton Beach subway station. Walk up to the board walk. The board walk goes all the way to Coney Island. Maybe a mile or more. You can take the same subway back from CI. Don't miss walking around Brighton streets... More
