Coney Island Adventures: SureShop Hits the Beach!

SureShop, New York CItySonjie SolomonComment

This past Sunday, we headed to Coney Island to dip our toes in the water and eat the first Nathan's hot dogs of the season. In the early 70s, I loved coming here with my family and now it's my turn to let my kids run around barefoot on the boardwalk, eat hot dogs and cheese fries, play carnival games and ride the Cyclone and make our own memories.

The water was chilly but that didn't stop M from jumping in to have some fun! 

After throwing the baseball around and swimming for a bit, we headed over to Luna Park for some arcade games and rides. Even with our stroller at home, we found a great use for the SureShop! By clipping M's wet clothes to the outside of the SureShop, we were able to avoid getting everything in the bag all wet and letting his clothes dry while we played!

Waiting for the boys to ride the go karts, I took a quick break. Good thing M's soaking wet clothes were able to drip dry while I I sat down on a bench and enjoyed people watching in the sun. 

As New Yorkers, we are so happy to see that Coney Island is roaring back from the rough days after Hurricane Sandy. For more details on how community organizations and the people of New York are working together to make Coney Island better than ever, and to donate to help with the recovery, here are links to 2 great organizations: Coney Recovers (#coneyrecovers) and Brooklyn Community Services.

SureShop at Brooklyn Bridge Park

This past weekend we enjoyed exploring Brooklyn, and taking our SureShop to Brooklyn Bridge Park

It was a foggy day, but still amazing to look out onto NYC and see the infamous Manhattan skyline. It was also incredible to soak in these views without having a bag attached to our side. Thanks to the SureShop we could load up on all of our essentials while having our bag nearby that was clipped to our stroller.

With activities all summer (including an amazing pop-up pool), we can't wait to explore more activities and attractions at Brooklyn Bridge Park with our SureShop in tow.
