U.S.S. Midway, San Diego: 41 reviews and 155 photos
One of the most interesting things we did was take a tour of USS Midway. The is, or at least was, a floating city with an airport on top. It was absolutely amazing to tour this gigantic ship from top to bottom, and see how thousands of people could live, work, and even wage war aboard the vessel for months at a time. Give yourself a couple of hours, or more, to explore the ship thoroughly
The Midway went into service near the end of World War II, in 1945, and was a flagship during Desert Storm in 1991, spanning an active life of 47 years. It was de-commissioned in 1991 and now houses the San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum.
