    Visiting Pearl Habor

    Looking for some help guys. I'm in Maui right now and want to visit Pearl Habor this week. I don't really want to sign up for a guided tour, so I'm wondering if the Arizona memorial, USS Bowfin, Missourie, ect. are open to the public or if access is only granted to guided tours?

    Also, I was hoping to check out any of the current naval yards and as much of Pearl-Hickam as possible, is there any of the yards/base open to the public or some good peep spots?

    Any other suggesttions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm sure the Missouri is open to the public. I know in order to get to the Arizona Memorial you have to take a boat ride and that will cost you money. That means buying a ticket. I don't know if they sell out the tickets daily, like thay do for Alcatraz, so you'll have to find out. Once in the Memorial I just walked around and there wasn't much walking as the square footage is small

    I don't see any Senior Discounts on the USS Misery website. I'll have to cross that off my Bucket List....

    Don't forget the USS Oklahoma memorial.
    Not having base access the only way you can view the Utah will be by boat tour.
    Its called Tourist Season. So why can't we shoot them?

    What'd you want to re-visit her for? The nostalgic smell of asbestos?

    Maybe I lied and never set foot on it.

    Since I'm just a couple of years older than you, I'm noticing places that give senior discounts and which don't. I think the Mo should give senior discounts and discounts to active and retired military. Heck. let active and retired military on for free. They'll bring people who will have to pay.

    When I went to visit the USS New Jersey last summer they let me in for free after I told them that I was IDF Armored Corps Reserves and showed them my Reserves card. I was only curious to see if there was a discount, I wasn't expecting a free ticket, to be honest...
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    And by doing that they have enough old guys to man the ship when the aliens attack!

    (I've watched the end of Battleship 50+ times now, the whole movie like twice... When my wife hears Thunderstruck, she goes "You're watching that again!?!?!?)
