terruf Tricked the kids into learning by going on a submarine tour...the Becuna patrolled the Pacific during WWII (exploring the very cramped quarters)...the U.S.S. Olympia (oldest steel warship afloat 1892)...drive by of the SS United States after the kids were able to explore artifacts from the ship (luxury passenger liner from 1952 broke the trans-Atlantic speed record) and the kids on the Olympia overlooking Battleship NJ.... #funday #philadelphia #philly #warship #submarine #ussolympia #becuna #ssunitedstates 2mon
  •   chicagolandbeerguy Always begged to go on that ship and sub whenever we went to Penn's Landing when I was a kid, which was often. 2mon
  •   craftbeerfanwi That looks like fun!! 2mon
  •   terruf @chicagolandbeerguy @craftbeerfanwi I thought it was going to be boring but it was actually really cool! They really let you explore the sub and the ship which was amazing. We were the only 3 on the sub at the time so we got to take our time. Can't believe they stayed in those confined quarters! 2mon
