    Brooklyn: New York City's hipster borough

    Book a Brooklyn vacation rental and you'll get the chance to explore a rich and diverse landscape. A day in Brooklyn may include anything from a visit to a world-class museum to a ride aboard an old wooden roller coaster. Connected to Lower Manhattan by the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the borough is also one of NYC's trendiest areas, where buzzworthy pizzerias and bustling breweries cater to eager hipsters. But Brooklyn is not just some asphalt jungle _ it also offers plenty of open space for recreational activities and outdoor living in the bustling borough.

    Enjoy the great outdoors while in the big city

    Return to nature with a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, as you stroll through colorful rose, Japanese, and Shakespeare gardens. When it's warm out, the nearly 600-acre Prospect Park lets you rent horses for a leisurely ride, while the lake offers pedalboats. Unleash your competitive side in the park's numerous fields for baseball, softball, football, and soccer. The park also adapts with the weather and, during the winter, you'll find facilities for ice skating, cross-country skiing, and sledding adventures. Embark on a unique workout as you cross the famed Brooklyn Bridge on a bike or your own 2 feet.

    From roller coasters to fine art: Brooklyn's eclectic sights

    Your Brooklyn vacation rental puts you just a short walk or subway ride from the trendy shops, restaurants, bars and galleries in such hopping neighborhoods as Williamsburg, DUMBO or Park Slope. For a high-brow experience, visit the Brooklyn Museum and peruse art ranging from Egyptian antiquities to Andy Warhol pieces. For a bit of lighthearted fun, stop by Coney Island, the famed amusement park where you can ride roller coasters and stuff yourself silly with hot dogs. Root, root, root for the home team at the Barclays Center, home to the NBA's Brooklyn Nets and the NHL's New York Islanders.

    Hot summers, snowy winters _ preparing for the seasons

    Bring an umbrella no matter what time of year you book your Brooklyn vacation rental as steady rain falls year-round, although July is often the wettest month. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures typically hovering in the 80s. Conditions are much milder in the fall and spring when daytime highs rarely go above the mid-60s. Snow can fall anytime from November through March, but snow boots and parkas are a must in January and February when blizzards can hit. Even without snow, you'll need warm clothing for the winter when temps frequently dip below freezing.

    Waterways and green space in a bustling metropolis

    Set on the southwestern tip of Long Island, Brooklyn is surrounded by numerous bodies of water, including the Atlantic Ocean, the East River, and Jamaica Bay. While the borough features a traditional cityscape, you'll also find plenty of gardens, trails, and parks offering green space. Make sure you take time to enjoy the panoramic views of Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park, tucked just under the Brooklyn Bridge. The park is particularly popular as the sun sets on the city and the sparkling lights of Manhattan set the night sky aglow.
