Highlights

  • Get up close to Lady Liberty (full name: Liberty Enlightening the World), America's enduring symbol of freedom
  • Hop aboard a boat ride and visit two small islands with a huge impact on American history. From 1892 to 1954, 71% of all immigrants entering the US passed through the federal immigration station on Ellis Island
  • In addition to access to Liberty Island you'll also get into the Ellis Island National Immigration Museum. Plus this product includes a boat ride, an audio tour for each island, and an exclusive pdf guide to downtown Manhattan - with more than $20 in discounts

Description

Take in the sights exactly like early American immigrants would have - without all the, you know... stress of moving house (and country). This experience takes you on a boat cruise to Liberty and Ellis Island - including visits to Liberty Island and access to the Ellis Island National Immigration Museum. Think of this as a profoundly moving meditation on the nature of American ideals... plus a boat ride!

Sent over the Atlantic avec amour in 1886, Lady Liberty towers over New York Harbor. Marvel at this monument as you sail (well, motor) over from Battery Park.

Once you touch ground on the three-acre Liberty Island, you'll have the chance to walk around the entire statue and listen to the audio guide telling you the history of this monument. (Tickets to enter the Statue of Liberty itself are not included).

From the island you'll be able to see that the towering monument is actually in mid-stride, breaking free of her chains. France in fact sent the gift over the year after the abolition of slavery in the US. Look up at her imposing figure, look down at the broken shackles by her feet, and see if you're not moved by the power of the gesture.

Ellis Island, a short boat ride away, goes further in charting the story of America's past, detailing the lengthy process refugees and immigrants went through to come to the land of opportunity in the early 20th century.

It's estimated that nearly half of Americans can trace at least one family member who passed through Ellis Island. Many of the exhibits are geared towards children - including an audio guide designed for children ages 6-10 - so it’s a very family-friendly way to get in touch with the immigrant experience. Afterwards, you'll grab another boat back to Battery Park.

The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island have an important place in New York City, in the history books, and in the ideals of the good old US of A. Take this trip, see these landmarks up close, and think on the inscription in Lady Liberty's book, which begins: "Give me your tired, your poor/ Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free..."

You'll be grateful for the freedoms and opportunities that you enjoy - and you'll also be glad that you made the choice to come visit.

LUCKY SEVENS: The seven spikes of Lady Liberty's crown represent the seven continents and seven seas, and thus the universality of freedom.

Insider tip

Ellis Island is one place where you don't want to miss the gift shop. There's a book containing all the last names of refugees who went through the Immigration Inspection Center between 1892-1954. It's neat to see whether your family passed through there. Mine did!

Great overall except long delays getting through security. Security understandably tight and the staff were very apologetic but we were held up as many visitors were not prepared for security screen. Perhaps giving advanced warning would speed things up.
