Get a glimpse of how sailors of the past lived and worked with an overnight adventure on the USS New Jersey. America’s most decorated battleship, the New Jersey was first launched for Pacific duty on Dec. 7, 1942. She also saw action in Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East.
Drive time: About 40 minutes.
Cost: $59.45 per person.
Eat here: An overnight stay includes breakfast and dinner served chow-line style in the crew’s galley.
What to do: A guided tour of the New Jersey includes the Combat Engagement Center, where you can participate in a simulated launch of a tomahawk missile. Then take a ride on the 4-D flight simulator. Sleep as the sailors did in their actual bunks.
Rainy-day fun: Barring a severe weather emergency, the tour and other onboard activities are always a go.
