The main attraction of Patriots Point is the famous USS Yorktown, the 10th aircraft carrier to serve in the United States Navy. Exploring it allows you to walk back in time and experience life in the military.

Besides the USS Yorktown, explore various aircrafts, the USS Clamagore, and the USS Laffey. You can also check out the Vietnam Experience exhibit and the Cold War Memorial. The Vietnam Experience exhibit uses state-of-the-art technology to simulate life during wartime in a “Brown Water Navy” base, letting you experience the mission to block insurgents and get their supplies into South Vietnam. It is an exciting and fascinating insight into the war.

Getting to Patriots Point by boat couldn’t be easier. Anchor your boat and the Charleston Water Taxis will take you straight to the entrance gate. Patriots Point is open daily from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm.  For more information and to buy tickets, please check out their website: http://www.patriotspoint.org/plan_your_visit/
