The Statue of Liberty reopens

Closed since October 2011, thanks to a $30 million, one-year renovation and damage sustained during Hurricane Sandy. The symbol of freedom makes its triumphant return, appropriately, this Fourth of July, with upgrades like shallower steps inside the statue, a new air-conditioning system and more wheelchair accessibility. Unfortunately, you’re still going to have to deal with all the tourists. 212-363-3200, nps.gov/stli; ferry ticket $12, children 4–12 $5, children under 4 free; crown access additional $3.
