Learned so much about The Statue of Liberty. Allow yourself at least 4 hours to really get to see it all.

The lines to get into the ferry is so long and you can wait about 45 min on the line but worth the time. Just watching her standng there with all the amazingness she provoque is breath taking.

Hi, I believe you can just stay on the ferry, it will take you back. There were plenty of people who didn't get off at Ellis Island. They make announcements to tell you to leave the ferry or stay on if you wish. Hope that... More
