Historical Ships of the US

We have visited a lot of historical ships!  I’m sure there will be many more as the trip continues.  Below are the ships we have visited so far with a little information about each one.

Patriots Point – Mount Pleasant, SC

Meandering Life Rating:  5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5) (Well thought out tours and a lot to see)

Overall Patriots Point is absolutely a five star.  There are three different ships to explore for one low price.  They also have a Vietnam War exhibit which should not be missed.  We spent the entire day there and had to rush through at the end because they were closing up shop!
