When in New York, don’t miss the chance to visit the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. Officially dedicated on October 28, 1886, the statue stands as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. Admire the imposing figure and the intentionally broken shackles by her feet, and you'll be moved by what she represents.
Afterwards, hop on a ferry ride to Ellis Island, where you'll be learning more about how immigrants came to the country in the early 20th century. Various artifacts, photographs, and interactive displays at the Immigration Museum will show you inspiring stories of immigration to the United States. Definitely a must-visit spot for every history enthusiast!
