Statue Cruises/Statue of Liberty
Few sights mean more to America than the Statue of Liberty, and you can easily visit the famed attraction—without the long NYC ferry lines—on a Statue Cruises trip from Jersey City! Statue Cruises takes you from Jersey City’s scenic Liberty State Park over to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, then back again.
What can you expect at this bucket-list attraction? A trip to the Statue of Liberty usually requires about two to three hours. Your experience can include everything from climbing to the Statue’s crown (advance tickets required through Statue Cruises) or taking a ranger-guided tour of Liberty Island. One of the most renowned attractions, the Statue of Liberty Museum, takes you deep into the iconic statue’s history, with the chance to see the statue’s original torch. Cap off your day with a relaxing picnic along the Liberty Island waterfront—and don’t forget that camera, because these NYC views are top-notch!
