Our class trip to the Statue of Liberty is very exciting for our children and parents alike. Living so close to the Statue is a unique opportunity for our young children to learn about this historical, national, and world famous statue and going to see it causes the children to marvel at its size and importance. The ferry boat ride to Liberty Island is also an exciting part of our trip. We walk around the statute, eat lunch at the picnic grounds provided, visit the gift store, and return home via the ferry to complete our day. We do not go inside the statue.
