      On a trip to Hawaii about a year ago we visited Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. This was a very emotional and intense visit. Pearl Harbor is a lovely area and the memorial is full of hushed tones as the visitors gaze somberly at the water remembering the tragedy that took place on December 7, 1941. I really felt in touch with history.

      When you get to the memorial the park service offers a free


      75 minute tour. The tour includes a short 23 minute film which discusses the attack on Pearl Harbor and a self-guided exploration of the Arizona.

      Visitors to the monument receive free tickets at the Visitors Center information desk. You should allow plenty of time to visit the memorial because it is always crowded and you have to stand in line for quite a while to get the tickets,the brochure recommends allowing 3 hours for your visit,


      • also since it is very sunny you will want to wear a hat and also apply sunscreen. After you get your tickets you take a short boat ride to the memorial itself.

        One thing visitors are often surprised about is the fact that there is still oil coming up from the remains of the Arizona even though it is almost seventy years later. It is quite a moving site.You can see some of the wreckage as well.

        Other interesting things to see besides the memorial itself are Waterfront Exhibits, where you can visualize the actual events as they took place, The museum which includes pictures of the ship band right before the attack and the Museum shop which has hundreds of items to buy that commemorate your visit. I really enjoyed my visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. I would recommend for anyone who is going to visit Hawaii. You will not be disappointed with your visit.
