Brooklyn is a city within a city -- and one that shouldn't be missed if you're planning to visit The Big Apple. Highlights for families, of course, include the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge Park, equally fun and famous Prospect Park, and Luna Park at Coney Island -- an authentic New York City experience and family tradition since 1903.

Brooklyn's food is an integral part of the experience, too, with delicious pizza offered at favorites such as Julie's Pizza and L&B Spumoni Gardens. Consider a food tour via A Taste of Brooklyn Neighborhood Tour to experience it all -- food and history. And if you're traveling with older kids (or searching for a date night idea), Peter Lugar Steakhouse is the place to go for quite possibly the best steak you'll ever have.

If you're planning a family visit to Manhattan for Christmastime, don't overlook Brooklyn's Dyker Heights, either. This neighborhood is decked to the nines for the holiday season, with residents spending thousands of dollars on lights, music and other special effects to put your family in the holiday spirit.
