ADVENTURE POINT: Statue of Liberty

It’s about as American as baseball and apple pie, and it turns out, I don’t enjoy it that much.

For the second time in my life, I hopped on a boat to Liberty Island to stand at the feet of the Statue of Liberty.

Blame it on the 99 degree heat, sunburned skinned or aching legs, but I do not find going to the Statue of Liberty worth the time, money and/or cattle herding it takes to do so.

TIP: Take the Staten Island Ferry for a good view of the Statue of Liberty. You are able to get pictures that are just as good as paying $15 and waiting in line for an hour.

If you must go to the actual island to get pictures posing like Lady Liberty herself,

TIP: RESERVE A TIME SLOT. Lines are long. Heat could be unbearable. Babies will be crying. It’s a tourist haven and a resident’s hell. By reserving a time slot, you jump the line, get on your boat and head straight to Liberty Island.

Overall, I’d say it’s a once in a lifetime experience, not a two-time thing.
