One of favorite places to have visited was the Statue of Liberty several years ago. Well, looking at my kids in this picture I guess it was more than several...this National Park Site had been closed after 9-11 and we were there to visit weeks after it re-opened. We loved our visit and have always talked about visiting again so I was really excited when I ran across this article, Thursdays with Lady Liberty. For a short time this summer, visitors will be able to take a ferry to Liberty Island for a BBQ dinner on the lawn and a chance to tour and photograph the statue at sunset. Unfortunately the statue won't be open, but it does sound like an awesome date night idea, doesn't it? I wonder if I could fit in a stop on my anniversary date with my husband when we travel to the Hudson River Valley in July? Hmmmm...probably not, but if you're planning a trip to this incredible American landmark, I can't imagine it could get much neater than this.
