Even on a cold, February day, this was a great experience (just make sure to dress for the weather!!). There are park service employees placed around to help direct you where to go. Security moved smoothly even though it was almost like going thru airport...More

Use the ferry to go by the statue and see it for free. If you want to step ashore at the statue, you can do that. If you want to climb the statue plan on reserving months in advance.

Very well organized cruise - they are pros at what they do. We visited Liberty Island & did not get off at Ellis island. You get to see Lady Liberty up close.

We took a helicopter trip to see the Statue of Liberty and were not disappointed. If you’re in 2 minds about visiting it then don’t be, you should do. If you get the opportunity to do it from the air then I’d definitely recommend this.

About 7 minutes on a very tight, steep spiral staircase. After 90 steps you have a rest station. Following that there are a few more at smaller intervals. I am 16 stone with a 50” chest and was ok with the space. Take one... More
