I’ve been putting off writing about my trip for so long! It’s not that I don’t want to, but rather, I haven’t had a lot of time to sit down and go through all of my photos, ticket stubs, and journal entries (yes, I journaled!). Heck, Chef hasn’t even seen any of my photos that weren’t up on Insta either (P.S. totes add me on Insta if you haven’t already!). So, in an attempt to appease those of you whom have mentioned you wanted a post, I will entertain your wishes with this photo essay of my trip to the Statue of Liberty!
I have been to the Statue of Liberty before, that same middle school trip discussed here. So, forever ago. I was excited to take my parents on this tour, but dealing with the pre-Polar Vortex weather was something we hadn’t anticipated (read: freaking freezing!). I’m sure many of you have taken the tour, but I learned a lot (again) about the iconic statue. For those who have no idea about the history or neat facts about the Statue of Liberty, read up here.
The tour’s cost included the round-trip ferry ride to Liberty Island and an audio tour. We didn’t complete the audio tour (it was really long and parts of it anecdotal– we’re more of a FAQ/quick-sheet family), but it was nice hearing some of the interviews and the history of the statue. I do think it would have been cool to go inside the crown, but tickets had sold out by the time we got to the box office.
This was a must do–at least once— for me while we were in New York, not only for the historical/touristy points, but because of that view!
