Taking a holiday this summer? Most visitors to the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA take vacation photos so we are sharing some from the crew.
Firecontrolman 2/c Dick Thorner and Carol visited several nightclubs while on liberty in Boston after the war. They stopped in the Circus Room in the Hotel Bradford and the Latin Quarter nightclub.
Share your snapshots of visiting the Ship with us on Facebook. http://ow.ly/i/kgvyz http://ow.ly/i/kgvzh http://ow.ly/i/kgvzN

North Carolina Log
Taking some R&R this summer? So did the crew during WWII.
“Camp Andrews was a rest and relaxation camp established for US Navy enlisted men at Oahu. It was about 15 miles from Pearl Harbor. R&R parties consisting of 150 men from the USS NORTH CAROLINA were sent to Camp Andrews for three or four days. We rode the little narrow gauge railway from Pearl to the station at Nanakuli. This was a hoot of a ride. Life at camp was very relaxed. We slept, ate, played games and drank beer. After three days of swimming on the beautiful beach with black sand and hiking up into the hills and eating as much as we wanted, we departed Camp Andrews and took our little train back to Pearl Harbor.” Radioman 2/c Charles Paty, September 1943
We hope your summer plans include visiting the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA! We’ll be waiting for you every day from 8am to 8pm. http://ow.ly/i/kgumY http://ow.ly/i/kgunk http://ow.ly/i/kgunH

In April 1944, American carrier planes were assaulting Truk and NORTH CAROLINA was protecting the carriers. The Battleship’s Kingfishers were assigned rescue duty and took to the air on the morning of April 30, 1944. Read more about the Truk Rescue in the latest sea stories blog http://ow.ly/4nsO56

Very cool to walk through this piece of history. You get access to a lot of the ship: guns, the bridge, mess/living quarters. My family and I enjoyed our visit. If you visit, be prepared to climb up and down a good number of narrow staircases on the ship. You're not really notified of this up front, and it might be difficult for some visitors. You can avoid some of them by skipping small parts of the ship, but if you want to see everything, you're gonna be climbing up and down a fair amount.

I came here on a recent family trip to NC. I been a huge fan of naval vessels and what better way to learn history than to be in it. The ticket price is around $14w/o taxes and you get access to the exhibits and the ship. Some of the areas are sealed off but it would take you a good half day to see everything. It's a self-guided tour but they have plagues for some of the items. Do dress comfortably and wear pants as you will be walking up and down tight spaces, stairs and across windy areas. Fun for the whole family but be tiring walking around after awhile. Stop by the gift shop, was able to find a lot of affordable presents. Post cards as cheap as a nickel, four ceramic coasters for $5, shot glasses for $1.49 and metal pencil sharpeners in various shapes for $2.

Great place to propose, guys. Fun place, especially if you like history. This is the most decorated battleship of WW2, and is preserved very well. 11/10 will return

Awesome historical ship to tour. It is physically demanding for those out of shape. Multiple steps to climb to see the whole ship. Don't go on a hot day if you do make sure to hydrate. other than fans blowing that's all the air you are getting.

Definitely worth seeing if you're in the area. There is lots to see, and it's really pretty amazing to see it all, especially knowing that this was a highly decorated ship during WWII. Be prepared to climb ladders and possibly climb into/through small hatches (especially if you want to go inside the gun turrets). Bring money for the vending machines and take note of their position on the deck... believe me when I say that you will be needing a cold drink or several during your touring. Also, check out their holiday events on their website.

Excellent. Absolutely worth driving 100 miles out of my way to visit this great ship. Most of the ship's interior spaces are open for viewing, and the information plaques are very informative. If you're looking for souvenirs, the gift shop's items are very reasonably priced; they don't gouge you at all. If you're anywhere nearby, go there! You won't regret it.
