This tourist attractions is nice. It can be reached only from New Jersey, or New York by boats. The island is the home to the liberty stadium. We do not know the real intention of the French king, Louis xxxx,but the idea of freedom is good, and had since been part of the foundation of the United States of America. Weather is good in June,at least it's true this year. Awesome place. A place in the must see list.
Ellis islands. What can I say? I'll start with that this is actually in New Jersey, New York just likes to take everything from us. But on a more serious note, this is an amazing testament to the admirable qualities of the American people. Whenever I look at the statue of liberty, I pause for a moment and admire the idea that these immigrants had such a strength in their hearts and a desire for a life in America. I am a proud American, and I love this island
Amazing visit. I would recommend not going with little kids. I took mine 4 and 7 they were bored they didn’t appreciate it as much as I did. I really want to do the hard hat tour it looks amazing.
This was a surprise just how good a museum this is. The audio tour is engaging and the exhibits don't whitewash away any past transgressions. The boat ticket that got us here also includes a trip to the Statue of Liberty, but make sure you come early because you'll not do both if you get here after 3pm. For American families, you can even freely look up the records from Ellis island immigrants to find out about your ancestors. Boat trips to this island can be made from either NY or NJ, and you can return to either after. I highly recommend giving at least 4 hours to this outing.
My wife and I have a 7 year old boy who loved it. It was his idea to visit Lady Liberty. Made it much better for her and I. Very informative. A piece of my actual ancestry right there...& some of my family passed through there in the early/mid 20's.
