At Mobile’s Battleship Memorial Park, you don’t have to look very far to find heroes. From the Battleship USS ALABAMA to the Submarine USS DRUM and over 25 aircraft, the spirit of military pride is alive and well.Aboard the battleship you will be...more

I’m not a veteran and, obviously, have never been in the navy. But I was impressed by this ship. It’s interesting to get a glimpse into life on a World War II era ship. The entry fee also includes a tour of a submarine. I...More
When we arrived the ship's deck was covered with Navy personnel. They were having some kind of meeting and some was spending the night on the ship. We got to meet some high ranking officers. Everyone we got a chance to talk to was very...More
Was awesome to see and explore this Great Battleship. They have a well planned TOUR ( a Green, a Red, & a Yellow ) to follow at your own pace. There is a lot of stair climbing, especially Top Side ( Yellow ). Obviously, Not...More

Although it was a little cold, we did the self guiding tour aboard the USS Alabama. Very informative and educational. There were signs and information everywhere. Very realistic. Enjoyed this blast from the past immensely.
Went to see this on a rainy day with my two kids, ages 7 and 3. We all enjoyed it, I’m sure that if it had been just my husband and me without the kids we would’ve spent longer there actually reading things and learning...More

3 hours would be fine and there are the static aircraft too. Worth checking to is if there are any other events happening on the day you plan to visit . When my wife and I with two friends visited it was " Low Riders" and " Monster Trucks ". Marvellous. Enjoy your day.
We arrived in Honolulu Friday June 25 around 3:00 pm. It was interesting packing because we were without electricity for almost 24 hours prior to leaving! Luckily clothes were all washed but we had to pack with flashlights. We left our 2 teenagers (boys ages 15 and 17) home, so there was a lot to prepare for them. Don't worry, we had people to stay with them and the house was still standing when we arrived home! We rented a car through Alamo and the lines were crazy long. We waited over an...More

Nice trip report. I'm glad you liked Oahu. I'm sure you had a good time on Big Island as well. "We followed Dusty's schedule which worked perfectly (although the Imax movie is at 1:30 not 1:00)." Had to go back & check the schedule on the list. It does say 1:30 for IMAX. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29222-i37-k647862… Sometimes when I go with relatives or friends we skip IMAX. Some times we go on a really hot day just because IMAX has A/C.

Or would we be better stopping of on our way back to N/O thanks in advance...More

Directions for avoiding the Mobile Tunnel (5 Replies)
This is not a question but in looking through some old forums, I found where I'd previously posted my directions for avoiding the Mobile Tunnel. I thought it might be worth posting as it's own thread so that others can find it in the future. I posted earlier today with a similar set of directions (in another person's thread) but these are actually much more detailed. We used this route last summer and got through Mobile on a Saturday with no problems! Directions: When you're on 98 (coming...More

Excellent directions..particularly the part of taking a left at 98 and going along on the causeway until you see that I 10 is clear. If I 10 is not clear..continue on the causeway and go up the hill and turn right at the light, go a couple of miles and join I 10 East
