"Statue of Liberty/ Ellis..." Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by larsy


Statue of Liberty/ Ellis Island
You can't go to New York with out going to Liberty Island. We took the ferry which was 7 dollars and included admission. Go early in the morning for the shortest line. A climb to the top isn't as hard as it looks, if your claustrophic skip it because you have to go up a tiny spiral staircase for half the climb. It's worth the climb to see how suprisingly small her head is. Ellis Island is interesting even if your anscestor didnt come through it, the Treasure exhibit and the Mental testing exhibit are the most interesting.

Address: In the Hudson River
Directions: Take South Ferry at Battery Park
