"Sight Seeing" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by SeanFarr1

A trip to New York without seeing the Staue of Liberty is incomplete. You ahve to go and see the majestic lady in the harbour. The size of the Statue of Liberty is only fully appreciated when you get close to her on the island. The location is amazing and the views back to Manhattan are also pretty incredible. ALso visit Ellis Island with all of its history and the building on the islands are incredibly beautiful. Maybe my favourite thing about going to see these sites though was the ferry trip to both islands. It offers the best views of downtown Manhattan.
