Coney Island is bustling on the unofficial last weekend of summer, with people of all ages enjoying the waves and sunshine.

Business owners say they've had a good summer thanks to the nice weather, and today was no different.

We spoke to some beach-goers who were there to check out everything the area has to offer.

Beach-goer"You have the best of both worlds. You have the beach. You have the sun—but you have the boardwalk, you have the games, you have the atmosphere. You have it all, so you have the best of both worlds," one woman said.
NY1"There's a lot to do?"
Beach-goer"It's a lot of tings to do and it's very family-oriented, so that's why we decided to come."

Many are out for a ride on the new and improved Thunderbolt roller coaster, which opened earlier this summer.
