Experience the sights of early American immigrants without the stress of relocating! Take a boat cruise to Liberty Island for a moving meditation on American ideals, combined with a pleasant boat ride. Standing tall over New York Harbor since 1886, Lady Liberty was a gift from France in celebration of the US's abolition of slavery. Marvel at her monument as you sail from Battery Park to the three-acre Liberty Island. Once you step onto the island, walk around the statue and listen to the audio guide sharing the history of this monument. You can observe that Lady Liberty is in mid-stride, breaking free from her chains. Look up at her imposing figure and down at the broken shackles by her feet, and feel the power of the gesture. Take in these landmarks up close and reflect on the inscription in Lady Liberty's book: "Give me your tired, your poor / Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free..." This experience will remind you of the freedoms and opportunities you enjoy and leave you grateful for your visit. Note that tickets to enter the Statue of Liberty are not included.
