Patriots Point

Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant currently contains an aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, and a submarine, the USS Clamagore, for public tour.  A battleship, the USS Laffey is also on tour most of the time but is currently in North Charleston at a shipyard for dry dock repairs.  The Yorktown contains a number of aircraft and a newly installed Medal of Honor museum. One of the nice features of the tour is the ability to have a home cooked lunch in the mess hall.

The Point is currently in dire need of federal support. Rep Jim Clyburn has introduced legislation to get the needed funds to keep the ships a float and open to the public.  You can read more here.
