Brighton Beach has several important spots I feel necessary to “hit-up” while you’re in town – especially if it’s your first time to visit. Most importantly, visit the pier. The vintage rides are charming and the view looking back towards the shore is a great way to get your bearings and take the city in. I also loved our stroll down the beach and popping my head into the little shops built into the wall of the promenade. It can get quite crowded down there, but if you bring proper shoes, you can walk on the rocky beach as opposed to the crowded sidewalks.
My favorite part of Brighton was the skeleton of the old pier that burnt down almost 10 years ago. It’s creepy and beautiful and I sat on the beach for a long time staring out at it. Brighton is now in the process of building an observatory on the beach that will give you a 360º view of Brighton and a beautiful view of this pier.
