New York City: Staten Island Ferry & Statue of Liberty (kind of)
You’re not able to stop at Liberty Island, and the views of the statue aren’t particularly close, but the ferry is reliable, runs 24/7, is fast, and free. The ride is about 25 minutes each way.
Even if you are just taking the ferry to Staten Island and then immediately back, you are required to exit the ferry.
Most people crowd the upper deck to get pics of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, but I thought the views were just as good from lower deck, too.
Here are a few photos below. For more NYC pics, check out my Flickr album.
