This is The Icon of America. Surprisingly, it's not as large as it might seem but it's a Must Visit when in NY. From the south tip of manhattan boats run to and from liberty Island many times daily. The lines for the boat trip...More

Beautiful seen!, friendly staff everywhere. Recommend to take a boat that gives a ride right in front of the statue without stoping at the Island. That alternative (1 hour) provides with great view and all the facts you need to know. If more interested in...More

This was AWESOME!! Take a nice walk around the base of the statue. Can pay extra to actually go up inside the statue to an observation deck.

If you can bear the HORRIBLE ferry ride over (cram em' in and WAIT!) the park is a very nice half day visit. That is what I would recommend time wise. We chose to visit the pedestal as well and there is a museum there...More

Another beautiful place to tick off the bucket list. Very busy and impossible to get tickets even to the pedestal. The audio self guided tour was interesting enough. We skipped the Ellis Island tour as it has no personal interest on a very hot crowded...More
