Definitely on the must do list if you are visiting New York for obvious reasons. The island itself that the statue is on is also rather pretty, and the views on the boat are lovely.

We took the ferry ride to this small island where we have this tall and beautiful statue of liberty. This is one of the most beautiful things to see around New York. Great message for everyone.. Not tiring trip at all.. You will take a couple of hours to go around the island and then you have the trademark ice... More

Wear comfortable walking shoes. Review guidelines months in advance if possible. You can rent headphones for a walking tour for kids and/or adults. They have separate tours.

Lots of steps to the crown but my family absolutely loved it! Kids were absolutely fascinated that they we INSIDE the Statue of Liberty. THe guides in the crown were great, gave lots of info and answered all of our questions.

We didn't get as close as we would have liked to due to the 4 hours queue in December to actually go to the Liberty island. However from as close as we got and from what we saw this was breathtaking.

if you are on vacation with kids (specially during summertime it could be cruel) and are not a US citizen, you might just skip the visit to the island and the statute, and instead take a relaxin boat trip that will take you around the statue. You won´t miss a thing and still be amazed by this universal landmark

If it's your first time in NYC you must do this. We use the cruise and got beautiful pictures of the statue from 400 m . It was fun. The hole trip about 1 to 1:30 hour. It's better to have crown tickets and walk around the island rather than just by boat. but for crown tickets make sure to... More

Seeing the Statue of Liberty in person was such a great experience. It is a beautiful site to see. It was extremely busy when we went there but patience goes a long way. There was a bit of a wait to get back on the ferry after but considering how many people were waiting, the line moves relatively fast. Crowds... More

The Statue of Liberty should be required viewing for all Americans. Every one in the family from 6 to 50 felt her power, her promise and her potential. It is amazing enough to see her on the boat ride out there. Then to be that close to her and begin to realize what she meant to so many desperate people.... More
