If travelers like to witness strange and unusual things while on their getaway, a trip to Coney Island in New York may be the ticket to ride. The circus sideshow there has been around for years and constantly updates its acts to shock and awe a new generation of guests.
According to Travel and Leisure, the sideshow has been a staple attraction on the boardwalk in Coney Island for more than 20 years. Those who buy tickets to the show will delight in 10 different acts, which mirrors the traditions and layout of a classic performance that used to frequent traveling circuses throughout the world.
Some of the spectacles that guests may encounter could include seeing a sword being swallowed, marveling at a fire-breather or watching a volunteer disappear behind a shiny curtain, reports the organization's website. Some of the most popular acts are the snake charmer and the contortionist.
Making plans to see the Coney Island sideshow may be a great way to organize a family reunion travel trip or even have a one-of-a-kind honeymoon travel excursion.
