Pearl Harbor - Hawaii

5 years ago

I think the majority of us who live in North America and possibly other countries learned about Pearl Harbor at some point in time during a Social Studies or a History class. Pearl Harbor is probably one of the busier tourist sites in Hawaii. I am glad we read about it before going as you cannot bring large bags, purses, or strollers into the Memorial due to security reasons. So on that day we just brought our cameras and our wallets. The main thing we did when we went here was go aboard the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park shown in pictures 3-7. It was interesting to see the inside of a submarine. I myself could never be on board of one of those in real life since I have motion sickness and I could not stand sleeping in such small quarters or even be cramped into a place that that for weeks on end. It is $10 to go onto the submarine and tour or $7 if you`re military and they give you a digital audio player that narrates you through the submarine and there are numbers listed inside the submarine so you know what you`re looking at. I thought it was really neat to get a glimpse of history visiting here. It is extremely hot and stuffy inside the submarine. Do not wear too many layers of clothing but you cannot visit Pearl Harbor in only your swim trunks or in a bikini and shorts. We were going to do see a few more of the things and visit the site of the USS Arizona Memorial(which I think is in the last picture), but we didn`t have time and this was during our first visit and we just took a bunch of pictures, went on the tour and then went to the Dole Plantation.

Did you learn about Pearl Harbor when you were in school?
Have you visited Pearl Harbor?

Side Note: If you or a loved one you`re traveling with are in the military remember to bring your military ID because many places in Hawaii will give military discounts and it usually posted if they will give you a discount.
