Stopped by for a very quick visit. To see Fort Sumpter you must take a ferry. A bit costly. USS Yorktown also moderately priced. We decided not to go as there was not enough time to see the full exhibit. I've heard it's impressive. Sadly...More

We enjoyed touring the captains bridge of the WW2/Vietnam era aircraft carrier. They had a variety of fighter planes from WWII to F14 Tomcat. We visited the submarine (tight). The vietnam era camp was very realistic.

This is a truly excellent tourist attraction in the Charleston area and should be placed high on the list of things to do. Our primary goal for putting this on our own list was that my dad was stationed on the USS Yorktown in the...More

Several people told me to visit Patriots Point when they heard I was heading to Charleston. It is just a short distance from Charleston. We spent 3-4 hours here and could have stayed longer. We followed two tours that were posted. We also bought the...More

The highlight of Patriots Point is the preserved aircraft carrier USS Yorktown CV-10 which was launched in January 1943 and served the US Navy until retirement as an anti-submarine carrier in the late 1960's. She was stricken in 1973 but happily was preserved for public...More

yes search Patriots Point. TripAdvisor would not let me post the link for you.
My family is going to visit Charleston soon. My Husband will be in a conference all day so I am looking for something to do with the kids. I have six children 10 months on up and I was wondering if it would be possible for us to tour the Yorktown. I will carry the baby in a backpack but I also have a two year old. I guess my question is how easy is it for small children to tour the exhibits?
