The boat ride there was enjoyable and fun, it is yet another should do, if you visit New York. Here are the 3 reasons why. 1. Pop-culture This is a symbol of the "freedom" of America in which the country was built on and is barely holding onto, so it comes up quite frequently in pop culture 2. History A statue of this size, with this popularity, has a historical story and message. 3. View You can go inside and have a great view of the city!
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most iconic monuments in the United States, if not the world. The statue, known as "Lady Liberty," represents all that is great about the United States. Lady Liberty was one of the first monuments that incoming immigrants to the United States saw in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It represented a sign of hope and relief that their journey to the United States had been successful, and that there was light at the end of the tunnel. While immigration to the United States by ship is not as common today, The Statue of Liberty still represents a sign of coming to America. New immigrants to the United States visit the Statue of Liberty as sort of a sign that they have made it to The United States. I would recommend visiting the Statue of Liberty to anyone who wants to experience one of America's most iconic monuments. If you aspire to climb the Statue of Liberty and see New York's iconic skyline and view, prior reservation is required.
Try to reach the spot early as it is always crowded even in weekdays. If you buy tickets on line, the security procedures are quite easy. Your personal belongings are checked like airport security. The cruise travel is comfortable consisting of three decks. Lot of eateries are available inside the park. Outside food is also allowed. The cruise is available for ferrying every 20 minutes. The monument is travel friendly.
A memorable place to visit. One must plan and book in advance for going into the crown of the statue. The tickets get booked much in advance. Security here is like at any airport & should be kept in mind while deciding to include something in the handbag. A ferry service starting from Battery Park drops the tourists to the Liberty Island. A one more security check is there at the entrance of the monument. The helical stairway leading to the crown is pretty narrow. Further, the climb is also exhausting. Nevertheless, the view from the uppermost level is unique.
Loved visiting Lady Liberty! Standing up in the crown was an amazing experience. The staff here are helpful and give you some really cool pointers for awesome pictures and where to look. The elevator was broken from the downstairs to the pedestal so that put a damper on the day, but I still loved climbing all the stairs. Going from the pedestal (middle part) to the Crown was quite the trek. You have to climb up a pretty steep and narrow spiral staircase. Being a big guy, I barely fit! But there are rest platforms on the way up and it is totally worth it. It gets hot on your way up to the crown and while in the crown, but you definitely shouldn't pass up visiting it. Highly recommend visiting here!
