Statue of Liberty: Better to just ride the free Staten Island Ferry (from downtown) to see the view. Going up to statue isn't so exciting. Bypass it to go to the Ellis Island Museum and you can get a great view along the way.
North American Black Historical Museum, Amherstburg, Ont., honours Underground Railroad history. "In the 1850s, as many as 30 blacks a day sought to escape slavery by crossing the Detroit River for Amherstburg, said Terran Fader, curator and administrator of the North American Black Historical Museum."
