It was great going over to finally get up and personal with seeing the statute and learning all the history. Walked up the steps to the pedestal and it was a little of a workout.

This is a must see for anyone. Getting close up is a must. Seeing it from the harbor does not do it justice. We went in a terrible storm, but still worth it
