  • I was here to board for a dinner cruise. This port was beautiful. There were quite a few historic monuments there along with a humongous air craft carrier sitting on the water. The view was amazing. The parking lot was well lit which was comforting because it was 9:30pm when we docked. Great place to visit.
  • This visit was great! Plan on spending a couple of hours here if you plan to see most of the things available. We toured the aircraft carrier, the destroyer, and the submarine. Each one was great and had tons of information about the vessel and the missions it went on. There's also a rather large setup you can walk through all about the Vietnam War. Between everything there it's an impressive display of history in a compact area.
