lady liberty

I've been sharing past travels lately that involve packing up and going someplace far, far away. Today I'll be staying more local, with a quick day trip to see Ellis Island and Miss Lady of Liberty. 

My sister and Matt and I took Letty here a few years ago.... why? Just because. It had been awhile. And clearly she needed to see the plaque where her namesake's name was engraved. It was a very hot day to say the least. And very crowded as I'm sure she is most of the time these days. But we went. We saw. And we only drove three hours to get there.

We bought our tickets beforehand of course, because that's just how we roll. We went through security before boarding the ferry for Ellis Island. Lunch there was hectic and I wish I had just brought food from home. The crowds! We did a self-guided short tour of the museum and then headed over to see the statue. Which involved clicking a few pictures and hopping right back onto the ferry again because, crowds.


I'm teaming up with Oh, The Things I Think to bring you Travel Thursday. This is a chance to share past travels every (you got it) Thursday. Domestic. International. Anything goes as long as it's travel related. Packing lists, to-do's, reviews, restaurant recommendations, only photos, etc. Knock yourself out. Feel free to grab a button and add your link below!
