THE HIGHLIGHTS OF USA TRIP

NEW YORK

  • Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island Cruise + Immigration Museum: When in New York, a great way to appreciate the scale of the city and avoid crowds is to take a boat cruise. Students can see the famous skyline and get to know the layout of Manhattan with excellent photo opportunities. The Full Island Cruise takes in over 100 landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and Yankee Stadium and lasts 2-3 hours.
  • Ground Zero Memorial and Museum is a poignant reminder of the 9/11 devastation and an inspiring testimony by citizens to honour those who died. Twin reflecting pools and manmade waterfalls mark the spot where the Twin Towers stood, with the names of everyone lost inscribed into bronze panels around the outside.
  •  New York City Midtown Guided Tour: Central Park, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Fifth Avenue & Park Avenue, Macy’s, Grand Central Station, NBC Studios (entrance and backstage tour)
