Many naval statues and memorials to see in the park along the water. Nice, quiet places to take it all in as well.

Went down to canalside to have lunch and then went for a wander around the USS The Sullivans, USS Little Rock and USS Croaker. Took about 2hrs total. Very interesting

It was very interesting walking through the ship and hard to imagine life on that ship. I never realized how big the ships were. It was a real learning experience. Each man/woman had a job to do. I got to see where they slept, where...More

We went with a tour group of retired navy men and wives, excellent experience! The men could tour a submarine, a destroyer and another ship. There was a museum and restaurant in the premises.

Canalside is a great place to visit if you have family coming to town, and when you do, visiting the Naval and Military Park is well worth it. There is a small but informative museum before you board the three ships that are permanently docked...More

I enjoyed this installation. Well preserved and laid out exhibits and very well kept and preserved. The site is downtown and easy to walk or get to. Surrounding area is nicer to walk around.

The park holds an impressive historic collection. There are interactive areas and plenty to see. The best part: the tour around the vessels!!!

When first driving to the park, off on your right there will be a few paid parking lots. I believe it was $5. The distance from the parking lot to the naval park isn't that far. From the parking lot you might even be able to... More
