Where is it at?
Statue of Liberty
Where are we going today?
When you take a ferry across the harbor of New York City, you can't help but notice that looming, and impressive, green woman holding that flame of liberty so very high. Yep - the Statue of Liberty is an icon of New York City, and an attractions that the family should not miss!
With the face being 8ft tall alone, it's an impressive sight to experience! Did you know that the seven rays on the crown represent the seven continents, and has been standing tall since 1886?
If those facts interest you, then the tour certainly should be for you! Kids can learn all about the amazing facts of this amazing woman.
In 1886, the state was give to the USA from France as a way to celebrate the friendship that was endured during that infamous American Revolution. And now your family can visit the statue and take in the amazing views of New York City!
The main tour to the statue is with a Crown Ticket, and this includes the ferry to Statue of Liberty Island as well as Ellis Island. This gives you access up to that very amazing crown of the statue - what an amazing view you will have!
Another tour option is just access to the Pedestal of the statue, and that also includes the ferry, as well as the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.
A journey into a very historically important icon of New York City, and of America! A must see for any family visiting the city that never sleeps (Of course, kids will be so exhausted after a long day of sightseeing they will be sure to get a good night - don’t worry!)

It takes energy to enjoy those views! There are concession stands on all of the boats that take you to the statue, and there are concession stands on the island too. Feel free to take your own food, but large coolers won't get past security..

Iconic of the nation's history, the statue of liberty represents a lot of things (good and bad) to the democratic process, and helps connect us to our place in time. A lot of what it represents to me is intertwined with Ellis Island and the immigrant story, as the first sight of liberty in a new world. While there are many other narratives as well, climbing the statue, meant a lot to me - though it's true that due to constant maintenance there are a lot of caveats as to where you can go, and what you can see (there are much better views elsewhere)...Read More

I thought she'd be taller, I mean not to be rude and all but it's NYC, your surrounded by extremely tall buildings, and lady liberty is like a little kid in the land of adult buildings. But it the island had an abousluty amazing view of Manhattan.

As another sidebar, there is never a good time, it is always packed, and it is always packed with tourists. Be forewarned.
