Bundle up for a scenic ride on the Staten Island Ferry, the easiest and most fun way to get to the borough. The 25-minute ride from Manhattan provides panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty and the Lower Manhattan skyline. Did we mention the ride was free? After you disembark, you’ll be in the St. George neighborhood, home to historic architecture, stunning views and family-friendly attractions. One of those is the National Lighthouse Museum, a new museum that showcases artifacts and exhibitions dedicated to nautical navigation. Winter is also a great time to warm up inside the tropical forest wing at the Staten Island Zoo.
