We had a family get-together in Atlantic Beach, and on the way driving there, took a wrong turn and nearly got lost. We noticed that the ship was on our' new reroute and decided to see what this was all about. I'm glad we did. For a very inexpensive fee, we got to explore an amazing craft of history. We didn't have very much time to walk around a whole lot, so I didn't get to go through the hull or on a tour, but I did get to sit behind one of many impressive gun turrets. Just the scope of the ship, it's huge. And very well-kept on top. It's history of success during WWII is documented through the banners and flags which it displays proudly on the ship. I do have some qualms or advice. I'm 6'1" and found myself ducking almost everywhere we went. Apparently, I'm an amazon! Also to watch out for are the stairs. They're quite small and steep, so use them carefully. The gift shop had a large selection of cool stuff, but was a bit pricey. But, other than that a really cool little bit of sidetracking!
