battleship at the beach

There’s nothing better than an educational weekend away. The USS North Carolina is one place we like to visit to do such. It is conveniently located right across the river from downtown Wilmington.

You’re allowed to walk the decks and go down into the heart of the ship allowing you to get the feel of what it was like to be on a battleship during WWII. in addition to the photographs and mementos inside the small museum, they play a short film with actual footage from the War. Which is always fascinating to watch.
