If it's your first time in NYC you must do this. We use the cruise and got beautiful pictures of the statue from 400 m . It was fun. The hole trip about 1 to 1:30 hour. It's better to have crown tickets and walk around the island rather than just by boat. but for crown tickets make sure to... More

Seeing the Statue of Liberty in person was such a great experience. It is a beautiful site to see. It was extremely busy when we went there but patience goes a long way. There was a bit of a wait to get back on the ferry after but considering how many people were waiting, the line moves relatively fast. Crowds... More

The Statue of Liberty should be required viewing for all Americans. Every one in the family from 6 to 50 felt her power, her promise and her potential. It is amazing enough to see her on the boat ride out there. Then to be that close to her and begin to realize what she meant to so many desperate people.... More

Had a nice visit here. Did not do do the pedestal or crown tour but enjoyed our time on the island. Highly recommend the Junior Ranger program for kids, my kids learned a lot, had fun and we learned extra info from the Rangers!

I don't have too much to say about this place as we only got to visit the ground, but make sure to plan ahead about a month or two ahead so you get pedestal access or something extra.

We did the Statue of Liberty boat trip across. The tickets can be used in the NYC Pass. We were there in October so not even the busy season and we were in line for about 50 minutes just to get on a boat. They really need to have more boats in operation. Once we arrive at the island yuo... More

Be aware: you need to book months ahead if you want to go to the top. Because we didn't know that, we just went around it in the boat, took wonderful pics... It's "that" icon, quite small but huge in meaning. Elis Island was more than worth it too.

We found the best time to go-Winter! We tried going out to the statue one summer but the wait line was hours, hours, and hours so we just looked at her from Battery Park. This year we visited in winter and literally walked right on to the boat-NO WAIT LINE!! Luckily for us the snow waited to fall the next... More

No trip to New York would be complete without seeing the lady herself. We took a boat trip to see the statue which was spectacular although not as big as I thought. The view on the return was breathtaking and will stay with me forever.
