The Statue of Liberty (and Crown Tour)
Liberty Island, New York, NY 10004 (212) 363-3200
Save time in New York to visit the iconic Statue of Liberty! A quick ferry from Manhattan will bring you up-close-and-personal to this famous landmark, standing proud as a symbol of America’s freedom. Feel free to stroll around the area, snapping as many angles as you want of the towering Lady Liberty. Walking up to the top of this famous landmark will require a bit more planning, however! As one of the most popular excursions in the city, you’ll definitely want to ensure a spot on a Crown Tour in advance (some even book a month prior.) The view from the top is amazing, though, and definitely, worth the 300+ steps, it takes to get there. Just remember that kids must be at least 4-feet tall, and the journey definitely isn’t suited for finicky youngsters. Afterward, your same ferry ticket also provides access to Ellis Island.
