Go to Ellis Island to look for your family history. Cruise on Statue Cruises to the Statue of Liberty to get a closer look at the Lady conveniently located in Liberty State Park and close to Ellis Island’s entrance.
If you have time to see the Tear Drop Memorial in Bayonne at the Harbor View Park it is definitely worth the trip.
After you get your history fill go for drinks at the Liberty House for views of Lower Manhattan and a nice bite to eat or if you are looking for other relaxed options take the pedestrian bridge and check out the Zeppelin Hall Biergarten for a stein and a pretzel or Surf City for a beach Tiki vibe.
All located on the outskirts of the park. Enjoy your day!
