It would be impolite to take a New York City vacation and not pay a visit to the lady. The permanent first lady of New York (if not the entire country), this gargantuan 305-foot-tall, French-made sculpture (and symbol of freedom to the entire planet), is one of the world’s most identifiable icons. She’s been standing out on Bedloe’s Island (renamed Liberty Island in 1956) —facing France —since 1886 and has been attracting hordes of people ever since. Don’t miss the second-floor museum dedicated to all things Lady Liberty (and includes the original torch). Make a reservation at least two days in advance for access to the top of the statue’s crown by calling 1-877-523-9849. Visits to the statue are free, but visitors must get a time-stamped ticket.
