Let's see, I went to...


  • Missouri in Pearl Harbor, Midway in San Diego, and I think Iowa too.  It was a long time ago, don't remember now.
  • Cod in Cleveland this summer while I was visiting the city for college visits.
  • Yorktown and Laffey at Patriot's Point in Charleston just two weeks ago.  I was down there for a regatta and convinced my friends to come along.

I've also been on the WW2 sub in San Francisco,  and the Soviet sub in San Diego. 

Generally I've historically more interested in Age of Sail ships.

The submarines that you have mentioned are the USS Pampanito, and the B-39.

Sailing ships, like other vessel types that have been preserved are each in a class of their own in terms of experiences that each person goes through when visiting. I'm more into visiting vessels that are built after the age of sail (warships, commercial vessels), yet I think we all have our preferences when it comes to choosing which ships to visit if you can.
