Patriots Point, Sullivan Island, South Carolina
Patriots Point is a naval museum, and especially naval aviation. Patriots Point is the home of the USS Yorktown, CV-10, a legendary aircraft carrier. The hangar deck is packed with WWII war birds and carrier warfare displays, and the Apollo 8 space capsule which the Yorktown recovered. This is a place worth seeing. You walk these decks with reverence. Patriots Point is also home to the submarine USS Clamagore (SS-343) and the destroyer USS Laffey (DD-724). I could have stayed there for a week.
