The Statue of Liberty
New York, United States of America
To most, she's the symbol of New York, so why not take a ferry from Manhattan across to Ellis Island and visit the Statue of Liberty, enjoying the views of New York from a different viewpoint. For visits all the way up to the crown, do book early!
Tickets over to Ellis Island can be booked online in advance at www.statuecruises.com. Ferries depart from Battery Park at the south of Manhattan and depart every 15 minutes - the cost is included in your ticket.
Battery Park is a lovely green space on Manhattan with its jogging and bike trails and basketball hoops - a good place for an impromptu picnic.
