What can one say that has not been said! I loved the boat trip and getting inside was a real bonus. We missed out on Crown tickets but hey we were happy with the pedestal height..lovely outlook to the beautiful Manhattan skyline. We did buy the tickets online as we went in October and it was fairly busy. The museum... More

Awesome ferry ride over, great opportunity to get photos of New York's city scape. We didn't do our research so weren't aware that you had to buy tickets to climb to the crown ahead of time. Still a good spot to visit, lots of photos, had to have a traditional hot dog while we were there. Great souvenir shop too!

While the lines are long and this feels like a Disney World attraction while waiting to board the ferry to Liberty Park, it is still something everyone must do. And it's worth it. The ferry is big and the ride is pleasant (sans all the people). Once at the Statue get the free audio tour tour and go at your... More

If you never do anything else while in New York, you must take the time to go to and climb inside the Green Lady that is The Statue of Liberty. Awe inspiring, amazing craftsmanship, dazzling views and I found it quite emotional when I got to the top. I couldn't stop talking about it all day. It's been on my... More

Great place to visit if you get the chance. I'd advise you to book online to beat the ques. Fantastic view of downtown Manhattan skyline. Also get some great pictures by the statue.

Buying statue of liberty tickets online is a waste, because in the winter (when I went) there are no lines, and the main point of buying tickets online is skipping the lines. Going up to the pedestal is not worth paying extra for because it isn’t that tall and you can’t see much from it. If you are buying tickets... More

Must see in NYC! If u brave u can walk to the crown! It is well worth it- but book very early (limited tickets), be reasonably fit (approx 400 stairs) don't be claustrophobic (the last 170 stairs are very narrow-corkscrew) and enjoy the spectacular views!!

Long drawn out process going through security and the fast pass tickets make no difference when everyone has a fast pass ticket! Well worth it though, I was in awe when I saw her, even from the ferry. Absolutely beautiful I just walked around the base and felt that was enough as any closer the view would be impaired. The...
