It’s one of the most recognized landmarks in the world, and symbolic of all the values that have come to represent the United States. The Statue of Liberty is one of the most desirable tourist destinations in the country, and this ferry ticket, which allows access to it, gives you no excuse to pass up a visit!

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, who 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 11 era.

Thousands of visitors come to see, and enter the interior of, the Statue of Liberty each week. As such, planning ahead to secure a reservation is crucial, and this ticket allows you to do just that. Please also be aware that security is understandably tight at this attraction, and visitors will go through a brief security check before entering.

Bring your family and visit one of the most historically significant destinations in New York, which can both be conveniently accessed using the Statue of Liberty Ferry Ticket.

Please read my review

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 actual boat ride was nice... info on it was good ... able to get good pics... to get onto the boat is frustrating... long lines ... security guard pointing up in the wrong direction... asked many staff where we were to go because we were able to skip the line and each one told us something different... the walk to get on the boat was very long and if you had a disability it would be difficult for you to keep up with the guide...

Liked skipping the line!
By Dave and family Verified Reviewer from Boston, MA on
Pros:
Convenient, Must do, Helpful
Cons:
Long Security Line, Couldn't get to Crown,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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!
