Beautiful!!

What an awesome sight and a great piece of history. Glad I didn't miss it! Our whole family enjoyed it, and also Ellis Island.

We went with Statue Cruises to The Statue of Liberty and had a great day. We were able to step off onto Liberty Island and wander at our leisure with boats departing every 35 minutes or so. Even if you haven't paid for entry to the statue, the view is still fantastic and you'll get a really good glimpse of... More

Visited here in December on my husbands 30th birthday, while we were over from Scotland staying in NY. It was fantastic, and would recommend it to everyone! A few people who had been to NY, had told me to get the free ferry past the statue, and not bother with visiting the island. But I was keen to go up... More

I have always wanted to see this beauty!! We bought the tickets for the pedestal! Warning if you don't wait for the elevator it's quite a climb, but worth it. The views were amazing, 360 degree views of the area. Interesting museum, learned a ton of the construction and history of this treasure. Will definitely come back and bring the... More

My wife and I visited NYC for the first time in January 2016. We booked our tickets for this 6 weeks before going as it does book up quickly. We bought the crown visit ticket which was worth it. The staff and organisation was 2nd to none. I'm not sure what I can say about this trip to be honest... More

We took the free Ferry from Battery Park. It takes you to Staten Island. You can see the Statue from the boat and it's quite the fun ride. Something free and nice to do

Went to see the lady with a group of teenagers and adults. We rode the Staten Island Ferry across and enjoyed the breathtaking 360° views from the top deck. We stayed at the statue for a couple of hours walking around and taking it all in. It is just as amazing in person. Just a little FYI though, if you... More

Taking the Statue Cruises is part of this great experience! Just going tot he pedestal is enough, especially if it is hot weather. The top is very narrow and hot. We hung around outside some of the "tours" to hear the information about the Statue.

We went by Horn Blower Tours around the Island, it loops to allow both sides to get a great view. She is not as big as you might expect, but stands tall and proud on her island, worth the trip.
