Although a boat ride might not be the first idea you think of when looking for a family attraction, this one is a great choice for families with children of all ages. There is plenty of space for exploring, but it's easy for weary legs to take a rest as well. It offers visitors a wonderful opportunity to see New York City's dynamic waterfront, as well as to better understand the layout of the city. You'll even get a great view of the Statue of Liberty
from the boat and a photo op. Try the shorter speedboat rides to the Statue of Liberty on the Shark
or the Beast
if you're looking for a ride that's a little more thrilling.
