*UPDATE* The Statue of Liberty Interior Will Open in On July Fourth Weekend

UPDATE: Due to the Superstorm Sandy, Liberty Island will be closed for the remainder of 2012.  Re-opening date TBD, per National Park Service.

UPDATE #2: The Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island will re-open on July 4th, 2013, per National Park Service. In the meantime, if you would like to see the Statue of Liberty, try a New York Harbor Cruise for some of the best views of Lady Liberty.

Since last October, the interior of the Statue of Liberty has been closed due to renovations.  Many tourists who come to New York each year want to climb to the top of Lady Liberty because it represents New York, America and Freedom unlike any other monument.  But for the past year they have been out of luck.

On October 28, the Statue’s 126th birthday, the interior of the Statue of Liberty will once again be open to the public!  Right now, Statue sightseeing has been limited to trips to Liberty Island and harbor cruises around the monument, but finally we will now be able to climb into the crown again.

Now that the Statue of Liberty is going to re-open, do you plan on making a trip?  Have you ever been before?  Let us know in the comments.
