Head to the observation deck for views and photos before hopping back on the ferry, bound for Ellis Island. Land on Ellis Island and listen as your guide paints a verbal picture of what it must have been like for immigrants landing there throughout the years. Visit the Great Hall to see family photos, hear personal stories, and trace your own family history. Finish up around midday.
