Sunday Outing: USS Hornet

As you know, we have 3 boys, and most of our outings are aimed at their enjoyment.  On
the 4th of July we took a much anticipated trip out to Alameda to visit the USS Hornet.
There was live music, food and games for the kids, as well as a flight simulator ride and a tour below deck.  The USS Hornet is an aircraft carrier that has seen a lot of action, and we really enjoyed the tour.  They had a dozen or so planes and helicopters on display, including one that was flown in the movie Top Gun.  The highlight for the boys was sitting in the captain’s chair when we reached the top deck.
They have a lot of different functions throughout the year, including a Halloween Bash, behind the scene flashlight tours, and even family sleepovers.  We bought the family membership which allows us to go back as many times as we want throughout the year, and free admittance to next year’s Independence Day Party.
If you have boys this is definitely a must do outing!
