You have to go if for no other reason but to say you have been. Who visits New York for the first time but does not visit the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island?
Tip – If you have a tour guide that can give you all of the history behind the statue and Ellis Island it will enhance your trip to this monument by at least 75%. You think you know and remember the history, but to be there in the moment and have someone run it all back to you on-site, is inspiring and worth it! But if you can’t manage a tour guide.. read my first paragraph and go with that advise.over 6 years ago
