New York City, NY

The Statue of Liberty is an iconic national treasure that should be at the top of your to do list when visiting New York City! Lady Liberty is easy to get to from most locations in the city and is a short subway ride away from the heart of the city.

What should you do to plan your visit? Ask your travel agent of course and I can handle all of that! You’ll need a ferry pass through Statue Cruises which is the ONLY ferry that is authorized to take passengers to the Statue of Liberty. You’ll then need to go through security and a bag check and then wait for the ferry. I suggest having all of this set up before your visit. The earlier you can go the better because the lines do get long.

The ferry will drop you off and then you’re off!

You can walk around the front of the statue and get a great picture, see the theater and museum and visit the pedestal (with a paid reservation).

You can stop and the shop and have lunch at the Crown Café.

You should allot for 1-2 hours for this visit. Once your visit is done the ferry will take you first to Ellis Island and then to the NYC dock point. Make sure you ferry times so you can fit both in and have plenty of time to visit these national treasures.
