A Naval Legend
The other big draw for the waterfront that competes for tourists’ attention has to be the USS New Jersey walkthrough tour and exhibit. This Navy battleship was the most decorated ship of its kind, in service from 1943 to 1991. After its retirement, it docked along the New Jersey shore and now serves as a museum and memorial for those who served on it. You can hear mission tales from World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, and Persian Gulf War on the guided tour, or just feel free to walk around at your own pace and explore the whole ship on your own.
