I've seen the statue a few times - first was in April of 2004, second was a year later, and then in May of 2010 (when picture was taken).

 We caught the ferry and was able to see it at sunset which was beautiful. I couldn't imagine a better setting to see her in all her glory.

Took a boat ride out and circled around the statue but couldn't go up on the island for they were restoring it. It was very magical for I couldn't believe I was seeing THE Statue of Liberty.

I gave the rating a 4 for I couldn't physically touch or stand on the statue's island but the nice little facts here and there on the boat ride was nice.

2 visits, once in 2011 with my girls, and again in 2014 with my boys. The lines were long for the boat and tickets were pricey, but it was worth the trip to see the statue up close.

It wasn't as big or as clean as I thought it would be, but I enjoyed the experience.

School East Coast Trip! So much fun! It was really cold, but it warmed and I was in good company. Loved it.

First all if you want to go all the way up to the crown book your reservations months in Advance. I didn't know this until I was already in New York so I didn't get to go up in the crown but I did get up to the pedestal so it was still a great experience. I reserved pedestal tickets through the Statue Cruises website and this includes a ferry ride from either Liberty Park (New Jersey) or Battery Park (New York). Take note of where you are and which Park you need to depart from and how to get there. The ferry then takes you to Liberty Island, where there is the Statue and a museum. If you are going up to the Pedestal or crown do not lose your tickets. You show them before you pass through security check point before getting on the ferry and you need to show them again on the island if you want access to the pedestal or crown. I almost lost the tickets in the security check point. It's set up like security at the airport where you go through metal detectors and put your things in a bin to be x-rayed. Keep your tickets in your hand or put it in your bag. If it wasn't for one particular staff member going out of his way to find the tickets for me we would have just had access to the grounds of the island.

The ferry ride was fairly quick. I got some night shots of the city from the sea and shots of Liberty and Ellis Island.On the island, along with a museum, there is a cafe. We stopped to have lunch there and then we went up to the statue. You can't take bags up into the statue so there are lockers for you to rent and put them in.

If you go to New York, you definitely have to see The Statue of Liberty, it was a better experience than going up in the Empire State building and so much cheaper. Your tickets also include a stop at Ellis Island where you can visit the museum there as well.

Seeing Lady Liberty for the 1st time (October 2007) was amazing. Whenever I go to visit New York, I try to pay homage to the mother of freedom!

Visited: October 2007, September 2011

I've only been really close to the Statue once when i was in fifth grade. I really want to climb to the top but there is a very long waiting list.
