I was looking for somewhere to eat on my drive from Boston to Newport and was directed to Fall River. Boy wasn’t I in for a treat. The Cove Marina restaurant overlooked the battleship cove. What an amazing view and sunset.

Nothing like it in New England! Find your way to a 3D past, with or without kids in tow. This two-phase museum includes large sites a mere five minutes apart. Ever ridden a vintage carousel? Test-drive a masterpiece: a 1921 working edition by the Philadelphia...More

Self guided tour of the battle cove area. Good variety of equipment and vehicles to see. Vietnam helicopters, submarine, battleships. Tickets are valid for 2 days when you buy. Different routes of the USS Mass are colour coded to assist.
