Just an outstanding experience. How often do you get to go onto an aircraft carrier? There is so much to see. I suggest following the 4 tours on the carrier. It will help you stay on track and see...

My wife and I visited here on the final day of our vacation. This was our third time to Charleston but our first to Patriot's Point and it was awesome! I didn't realize that there would also be a Vietnam exhibit which was really cool. If you love military or naval history or if you just want a really neat experience for the entire family go! It is a must do. You do want to set aside 4-6 hours. We didn't even read everything and rushed in some areas and were there for 6 hours. If you are a teacher make sure you ask about teacher discounts.
This was an awesome experience! The fighting lady is a large retired aircraft carrier, she is still very impressive today. The inside of the carrier is laid out similar to a museum with lots of artifacts and several full size airplanes. The destroyer is more interactive and less like a museum, my advice would be to resist the urge to go straight for the large aircraft carrier and take in the the destroyer first.
