The Last Remaining World War Ship Is In Texas And You Can Tour It

Texas has a tremendous amount of war history, but sadly a lot of it is long forgotten by now. Sure, we have anecdotes passed down from family members who served, but some details are bound to get lost through oral transmission. Luckily, one of the most important assets of our country during both major wars is still intact and sits right here in the Houston Ship Channel for visitors to enjoy. Touring Battleship Texas will take you on a journey back to some of the hardest times our world has ever faced, and consequently, your pride for America and our great state of Texas will soar.

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/
