A classic Wilmington site, the battleship memorial has been open since 1961. Because it is a memorial, it is open every day of the year, including all holidays.
For the history buffs (and even those not that into history!) You can take a really interesting tour of this major Wilmington landmark docked in the Cape Fear River.
USS North Carolina (BB-55) is the lead ship of the North Carolina class of fast battleships, the first vessel of the type built for the United States Navy. The ship was laid down in 1937 and completed in April 1941, while the United States was still neutral during World War II.
A must-see when in town. Go early in the summer to avoid the heat of the day. There is no air conditioning on the battleship. Exploring the ship can take anywhere from 1-4 hours.
