Photos & Fun Facts About The Statue of Liberty #TravelTuesday

I was browsing through some photos from our NY Holiday Experience and came across some beautiful images we captured of Lady Liberty. What an amazing day and a truly unforgettable experience.

How we got there:

It was December. We took a cab to Battery Park. We got tickets for the ferry to Liberty Island with a stop at Ellis Island. Tickets were $13 per person.  It was a sunny day but had really cold wind chills. Gloves and a hat came very handy on this day.

The grounds were beautiful and clean.

And Lady Liberty herself is bigger than life. The little pink speck below is a 7 yr old tourist.

Some FUN Facts About Symbols on the Statue of Liberty

What does the torch represent? The torch is a symbol of enlightenment. The Statue’s official name represents its most important symbol, “Liberty Enlightening the World.”

What does the Statue wear on her head? The Statue of Liberty wears a crown, or diadem.

What are the spikes on the crown? Many believe the seven spikes are rays of light representing the seven seas and seven continents of the world.

Where on the Statue are the broken chains located and what do the chains mean? The broken chains are near the Statue’s feet and are not visible from the ground level. Many believe the chains represent breaking free from tyranny and servitude.
