Statue of Liberty Ferry Ticket

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, symbolic of all the values that have come to represent the United States. This ferry ticket gives you access to the Statue of Liberty!

The Statue of Liberty, a National Monument protected by the United States National Park Service, was first given to the United States as a token of goodwill from France in 1886 thanks to the original idea of Edouard de Laboulaye. Laboulaye saw the country as an international beacon of hope for having abolished slavery after the Civil War. The Statue of Liberty now stands as an international symbol of freedom and democracy, giving particular comfort to Americans and pride to New Yorkers in the post-September 11th era.

Please read my review
By SJ from PHILADELPHIA on

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Ferry Ticket:

This is the worst ticket ever. I would rate it as negative star but the website doesn't allow me to do so and It deleted my previous review. 1.I donno why this website said the ferry ticket is 24 bucks. The ticket center at the battery park sold the ticket for only 18 bucks-official price. So I don't think I save any money for buying ticket from this website. 2.Please be aware that there will be multiple process needed to be followed in order to get our ticket.

Comments about Smart Destinations Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Ferry Ticket:

The ticket line to get your ticket is so incredibly long. It was great to have my ticket in hand when I got to Battery Park. But I still had to stand in the security line which also was long. I was thankful that I at least got to skip one line. You have to make sure that if you want to visit the Crown you take your ticket to the window to get a timed ticket for the Crown. I did not do that and honestly I think I would have been better off just taking a boat cruise that went past the Statue. I love Ellis Island though and it was really worth going to Ellis Island!
