Trip Report — USS Yorktown, October 2017

My wife, son and I took a road trip to North Carolina and made a side trip to visit Patriot’s Point in Charleston, South Carolina. Before we got there, we had lunch at an awesome restaurant that deserves a shout out. Place is called the Glass Onion and is highly recommended.

At the Patriot’s Point Naval and Maritime Museum, you can self tour the USS Yorktown (CV-10) an Essex Class Carrier, the USS Laffey (DD-724) which is the most decorated World War II era US Destroyer still in existence and the USS Clagamore (SS-343) a Guppy III class submarine. Plan a whole day to be able to tour everything and be ready for some walking. On the Yorktown, you will find aircraft ranging from the WW2 through current.

The ships, aircraft and displays are amazing and informative. Cant wait to go back one day.

Here are some photos of the aircraft found onboard.
