We arrived at closing so we were unable to enjoy the full blown experience. It was nice to walk alongside the vessels and see the massiveness of them.

Many naval statues and memorials to see in the park along the water. Nice, quiet places to take it all in as well.

Went down to canalside to have lunch and then went for a wander around the USS The Sullivans, USS Little Rock and USS Croaker. Took about 2hrs total. Very interesting

We went with a tour group of retired navy men and wives, excellent experience! The men could tour a submarine, a destroyer and another ship. There was a museum and restaurant in the premises.

When first driving to the park, off on your right there will be a few paid parking lots. I believe it was $5. The distance from the parking lot to the naval park isn't that far. From the parking lot you might even be able to... More
