Take a selfie with Lady Liberty and visit Ellis Island

Having welcomed immigrants in 1886, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island have been representing freedom ever since. Millions flock here every year to catch a glimpse of Lady Liberty, one of NYC’s most iconic figures, and to discover more about the city’s vast history.

To get up close and personal with the Lady Liberty, catch the ferry from either Battery or Liberty State Park where your adventure begins as soon as you step on board. Just a short 15-minute journey across The Hudson River will bring you to Liberty Island and the green beauty herself.

Standing 305 feet tall and weighing 225 tonnes, the statue was a gift from France and designed by Eiffel Tower architect, Gustave Eiffel. For the ultimate experience, climb the 354 steps to the crown and gaze out to the world-famous New York City skyline. Make sure to bring your camera and have your phone fully charged on this trip as you will be taking pictures left, right and centre.

Before heading back to the city, hop back on the ferry to your next stop, Ellis Island. What was once the gateway for millions of migrants, the venue is now a fantastic museum that will see you take a trip back in time with beautiful architecture, amazing exhibits and an emotional ambience that is sure to touch every visitor. With an estimation of close to 40 percent of current U.S. citizens being able to trace at least one of their ancestors back to the iconic site, it holds its place as one of America’s must-sees – and rightly so.

The tour takes approximately three hours so make sure you take some time out of your day and immerse yourself in some rich history and culture... Fifth Avenue will still be there once you’re finished.
