  • Historic Sites: "Don't miss out on visiting the statue because it's only accessible by boat, set on a government-run island in the middle of New York Harbor; it's easy to work into your trip with some advance planning."
  • Best for Historic Sites Because: On October 28, 1886, a million New Yorkers cheered the official dedication. Since then nine million immigrants passed through until 1954.

  • Sightseeing: "If you're not interested in paying the hefty fees, hop on the Staten Island Ferry. It's free and you'll still be able to sneak peeks at Lady Liberty."
  • Best for Sightseeing Because: The Statue of Liberty is one of New York's most recognizable icons.

  • Best for Attractions near Cruise Port Because: You can actually get a good view of the Statue of Liberty right from Brooklyn's cruise port. Or you can go see it directly.
