One of the most famous and recognisable landmarks in the world is the Statue of Liberty, so you can't go to New York with out seeing the 151ft giant. The ride also features some amazing views of the New York city buildings and Governors Island.
If you're looking for an affordable way explore, jump onto the Staten Island Ferry which will take you past the Statue of Liberty for $0. The ride takes approx 25 mins and leaves from the Whitehall terminal approx every 30 mins.
It's recommended to avoid riding the ferry during peak hour as it can get quite busy. There is plenty of seating on the ferry, a kiosk and restrooms.
