Last month, my parents and I went to San Diego to use up our free visit to Sea World. Since we had just gone there in August, we decided to add on visiting the USS Midway Museum – which can be found by Tuna Harbor (where the Unconditional Surrender statue is located).
We spent a couple of hours there, and it was such a thrilling experience. How I would have loved to take my grandfather along (a World War II Veteran who served in the Army and flew missions in Italy). Unfortunately, he’s not in the greatest shape to be traveling two hours by car.
We purchased our tickets online the night before for a slight discount, but if you have a Costco membership you can get an even better deal, if ordered in advance.
My dad had such a great time. As a young boy in the Philippines he always had the dream of joining the Navy. For whatever reason, that dream didn’t come to fruition. There were a ton of exhibits and aircraft that you can actually board. I would have liked to go on the simulators, but we didn’t have the luxury of time.
It’s certainly a great way to spend a part of your day if you’re in the area. It’s a place the whole family can enjoy.
