We will immerse ourselves in the heritage of our ancestors at Ellis Island Immigration Museum, then board a ferry with Statue Cruises and head on over to Liberty Island to visit with Lady Liberty, of course.
Our day begins with a ferry ride with amazing views to Ellis Island. While on Ellis Island, you may opt to partake in the audio tour that is offered, or simply experience the Museum at your own pace. You will also have the opportunity to actually search the Museum’s database for your own ancestors’ passage records and documentation (nominal fee required). Back onto the ferry and with views of New York City to then arrive at Liberty Island. Visiting Liberty Island and seeing Lady Liberty is one of the most rewarding experiences on any trip to New York City.
We’ll enjoy access to the inside of her pedestal, the museum and the Fort Wood level, along with free time to just soak it all in! It’s a beautiful National Park. Of course there are gift shops on both islands to satisfy your shopping and souvenir needs!
Bus departs from the Morris Town Hall (3 East Street); departure time TBD. Our coach bus trips are opened to all members of the Community thanks to a great collaborative effort between Warren Parks and Recreation / Morris Beach and Recreation. We hope you'll join us!
