Explore some of the most beloved monuments in America during your Liberty Island, Ellis Island & Battery Park Walkabout!
A New York trip is incomplete without catching a glimpse of the famous Statue of Liberty. Built in France, then re-assembled in America, this gift from the people of France is not just copper and iron. For many who came to the shores of America in search of a better life, it was a symbol of hope. Explore both the Pedestal and its museum, getting exclusive access up to the Fort Wood Section. Then, hop on over to Ellis Island and learn all about this famous island that was once called “The Island of Tears”. Lastly, a guided walking tour of Battery Park will round out your experience. You can see popular attractions like Seaglass Carousel, Bosque Gardens, Castle Clinton, and many others. Don’t miss out, it’s what to do in New York!
Start your journey with a 30-minute guided tour of Battery Park. Located right by the sea, this park was once an artillery battery that defended the settlement from sea invasions. Check out many interesting sights at the park with your guide! Then, take a ferry ride over to Liberty Island and get up-close and personal with Lady Liberty, herself! Next, a short ferry ride will take you over to Ellis Island. Tiny but massively important, Ellis Island processed over 12 million migrants into the country. You can enjoy audio guides of Liberty Island and Ellis Island, which are available in different languages, too. If you wish to upgrade for a guided tour, this option also includes a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum on your return to Manhattan. For a perfect day out in the Big Apple, this is one of the best things to do in New York!
