The Entire Battleship New Jersey Tour Can Now Be Taken From Your Couch
Battleship New Jersey is a can’t-miss Garden State attraction that absolutely needs to be seen in person. It’s such an incredible piece of history! However, that’s not possible right now, so we’ve found the next best thing – a comprehensive virtual tour. At around 30 minutes long, you’ll learn so much about the ship, and you may even feel like you’re actually there. It’s definitely something worth watching as a family and can even make for a fun little date from home.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
I don’t want to cover the entire tour because I want you to enjoy all the surprises I did while watching it! It’s truly something special, just like the ship itself. The virtual tour is fun, fascinating, and free! However, it costs $10,000 per day to keep the Battleship afloat on the Delaware River. If you’d like to enjoy this gem for years to come, consider donating whatever amount you can or buying a special gift from the battleship’s official store. You’ll find toys, books, apparel, magnets, and more, along with one-of-a-kind collectibles including wood from the ship and American flags flown aboard the U.S.S. New Jersey. Honestly, they’re a steal, and so meaningful! Check out the tour below:
