Customer Travel Tip: Hopefully, you will visit when it is not so hot. Other than that, just take 2 or 3 attractions per day, hopefully close to each other. Also, if hoping to go inside the Statue of Liberty, reserve a time as soon as the dates are definite.

Liked: Just so much to offer. And so diverse, as there are a variety of foods to eat.

Disliked: During a heat wave, it can be very tough to get around. Also, it can be tough to decide what to cut out, but that can be said about any place. Also, very expensive!
