California’s history can be experienced in the most spectacular ways. Take, for example, the USS Hornet, a former U.S. Naval Aircraft Carrier that was commissioned in 1943 and has reopened as a museum. During its time, the USS Hornet covered an impressive 155,000 miles and fought against Japanese planes during World War II. And yet, there’s more to the vessel than its history of heroism and endurance during battle. It’s believed that the massive ship still holds the spirits of those who fought bravely and tirelessly during the war. You can sign up for an exclusive tour with Ghost Hunts USA and experience the USS Hornet on an overnight paranormal investigation. Needless to say, it’s an experience that isn’t for the faint of heart.
