Go and Visit the Iconic Statue of Liberty. Some attractions are more important than others. The most popular (by a landslide) is the Statue of Liberty. Not only does it have a rich history behind it…. but the statue is pretty impressive up close! You will be amazed at the sheer size of Lady Liberty. Tours take place throughout the day with an additional stop off at Ellis Island. To avoid wait times, buy your ticket ahead of time or speak to the concierge at your hotel. That extra bit of planning will save you an awful lot of time.
