The Statue of Liberty is one historical site that should be on everyone’s itinerary. In fact, even native New Yorkers should make it a point to visit this attraction at least once in their life. While you can always take a tour by boat or ferry to Liberty Island, we also want you to know that there are definite advantages to choosing air transportation instead. Our Statue of Liberty helicopter tours offer several benefits for making your first glimpse of our nation’s most important statue extra memorable.
Make the Most of Your Time in New York City
Between the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and other amazing New York landmarks, it is hard to squeeze everything you want to see into just one trip. When your time is limited, spending an entire day taking the ferry to and from Liberty Island is just not possible. You should also not be forced to choose between seeing this site and the other iconic landmarks. Our Big Apple NYC Helicopter Tour is designed to help you see the beauty of the Statue of Liberty within a short, but exciting helicopter ride. In fact, you can see more in 15-20 minutes from the air than you could ever see being on foot for hours. You also have the option of seeing other landmarks within this time that enhance your visit to the “Big Apple”.
Get the Best Possible View from the Sky
Speaking of in-air views, you should also know that perspective is everything when it comes to enjoying the sheer size and intricate details of the Statue of Liberty. One of the amazing facts about the statue that you might hear on our tour, is that it is about 305 feet and 6 inches tall from the base of the pedestal to the tip of the torch. When you think about it, there is no way to see the detailed features of the statue simply by staring up at it on foot. Our helicopters maintain a respectful distance from the statue but still allow you to zoom in on the features that are higher up on the statue. From your seat you can check out the carefully sculpted rays of the statue’s crowns as the patina reflects the sun. This view is also a photographer’s dream since it lets you get those unique close up shots of the statue’s head and torch that are impossible to get from the ground.
Leave With the Best Impression of New York City
The challenges that come with going to a crowded tourist attraction often ruin the overall experience. After fighting your way through crowds of tourists on the ferry, you may be too tired to spend the time you want to enjoy the site. On our best New York City helicopter tours you have the option of arranging for a private tour. You can also enjoy the ride with only a handful of other people who all have the same idea of making sure that their view of the statue isn’t destroyed by a crowded experience.
The Statue of Liberty represents freedom and the opportunity for all Americans to pursue their greatest dreams for happiness. When you look at it that way, flying through the sky for a birds-eye view of this breathtaking landmark just makes sense. From skipping the crowds to making sure that you can truly appreciate the craftsmanship that went into making the statue, taking a helicopter tour to see this beauty is worth every exciting minute.
