We visited the Statue of Liberty while my daughter is in her late teen years. We were there during the busy season and were warned to get tickets early, which we did. I am very grateful for this advice as we wouldn't have been able to go up to the pedestal. I hope to return though and go all the... More

Love the stroll. I understand that for security purposes we have to be searched like an airport but when you travel by yourself with two small kids to see the statue of Liberty they should really give you special consideration.

The Statue of Liberty is such an icon and it did not disappoint. It is very impressive but none tells you of all the waiting and security that you have to go through to finally get there. It took some of the shine off of the trip for me. We were hoarded like cattle for ages before we got on... More

If you haven't done this, it is a must while in New York. We bought ticket in advance which saved waiting in that line. Unfortunately, the crown tickets were sold out; so, make plans as far ahead as possible. We got pedestal tickets which were better than nothing with a nice view of the surroundings. Ferry ride and Ellis Island... More

Go to Liberty Island! My wife and I visited New York earlier this month with our 13-year-old granddaughter. Many Trip Advisor reviews indicate it can be a challenging trip and we found there is a lot of truth to that. We took a 9 am boat on a Wednesday to avoid some of the crowded line, bout the boat was... More

As a first-time visitor to NYC, Liberty Island and the Statue Of Liberty was near the top of my attractions list. Without the Pedestal Ticket though, I don't think this would have been anywhere near as good. This ticket takes you to the viewing platform at the top of the base. This not only puts you up close to the... More

We booked a month in advance on line to get access to the crown.it is always very busy so make sure to do the same.to access the crown there is a very enclosed spiral stairway which is very tiring and clostraphobic so if you do suffer from this or are unfit then avoid the crown. Very enjoyable experience and well... More

Most popular attraction in NYC. We bought tickets online and took 9 am ferry. Be ready for airport level security before the ferry as well as before entering the statue . Smooth ferry ride with awesome views. We climbed up to the pedestal ( 160 steps ) Elevator was not working . But it was not tiring. Seeing the lady... More
