This was a nice memorial. This was a little farther away from the attraction than I would have expected it to be.

Having served on submarines in the US Navy during this time the memorial brought back many memories of people, places and events. I think it I a place for all to visit and reflect on what was and how we can preclude a repeat of those times. A visit for the young is very much recommended.

This is across from the entrance to Patriots Point. It is not much to see, but good for a drive by. 10 minutes spent at most.

Sobering experience of what submarine force means, loved spending time at the park and reading the history of these magnificent men and women who call themselves submariners.

You may walk around the sub and truly get an excellent perspective of the size of these modern-day warships. There are plaques that explain about the boat and what you are seeing.

Loads of history! Wear really good walking shoes, bring your camera, and sunscreen! This entire area is loaded with plenty to see! Read up on the history before you go!

This was so cool to see! It's really a little shocking to suddenly see it! The entire area is beautiful. What a great background for pictures.
