1. The Statue of Liberty | The United States

The Statue of Liberty is world-famous, and perhaps one of the most famous symbols of the United States. You can take a ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island to get a good view.

If you want to see the statue close up, take the ferry to Liberty Island. You will be able to see the lower part of the statue, but if you want to go higher up, you need to upgrade your ticket. The statue is 92 metres high and inside, there are 403 steps up to the head. The statue is also a lighthouse.

The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France in 1886. It was the sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and engineer Gustave Eiffel that were the brains behind it. In her right hand, the Statue of Liberty holds a torch. This is a symbol of freedom that lights up the world. In her left hand, she holds a roll, which symbolises what is right or wrong in society. All people are born equal, and everyone has the right to a good life and freedom.
