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 / 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!
