The port and the San Diego seafront are a very interesting place for military enthusiasts. We can visit here the Aircraft Carrier Museum, USS Midway, submarine and several other US Navy ships.

USS Midway

Visiting an aircraft carrier is rarely pleasure and I suggest to book a few hours for it. In addition to sightseeing, we can also listen to the stories of veterans serving on this type of ship.

They will tell you about everyday life on the aircraft carrier. They will explain, for example, what the procedure for taking off and landing aircraft on an aircraft carrier looks like. We can touch almost everything and even sit behind the controls of some aircrafts. We can also buy original clothes and gadgets from the US Navy.

San Diego Attractions-Coronado Island

We get to the island only by a very steep bridge that reaches the highest point of 60 m on the water. The bridge is so high, not without reason, the largest ships from the nearby US Navy Naval Base have to go under it.

The island itself is a very expensive place to live, the largest employers are the American army. The island is home to the historic Hotel Del Coronado, which opened in 1888 and was the largest hotel in the world at that time. The island also has one of the finest beaches in all of California.
