I am a volunteer on the Cod. It's a great opportunity to get involved in a positive way to show Cleveland, Oh.

Cleveland built diesel engines, Cleveland steel in her hull, and at a historic submarine dock built in 1936, the Cod has been a favorite of young and old, families and veterans since 1959, when Cod came to us!

I found the Cod to be very interesting. Quarters certainly are tight on the vessel, and if you're overweight, it might be hard to get thru some parts of the sub.

This is not for everyone though. I personally visited it to take a look at its interior to know what is it like in a World War 2 era submarine. It is fascinating though inside. The admission costs USD 10.

Visited this memorial on a Friday evening and it was one of the coolest thing we've done in a long time. The stories are really neat to hear and the way the submarine is preserved is amazing. One of the best attractions in Cleveland!

Having never seen a submarine up close, I found this really neat! It costs $10 per adult, with free parking. You are able to walk around on top of the USS Cod, as well as through the inside. There are audio tours and lots of photos all throughout the sub. Being claustrophobic, I moved quickly through it, but I don't... More
