"Old Ironsides" herself, docked for you to see and explore. For me, this was the perfect finish to the freedom trail. Every evening, they fire a cannon to signal the Colors and lower the United States of America Flag to retire it for the evening. Done by the Navy, this was performed with exactness and pride. As a deep rooted patriot and armed forces veteran, this was even a little emotional as I place my hand over my heart and pondered the cost many revolutionaries were so willing to accept in pursuit of their vision of a new independent nation. This boat is the oldest commissioned naval vessel and over 200 years old. Even though this ship was not used until the War of 1812, it still finds a perfect home with the revolutionary events that occurred 50 years before. What a wonderful piece of history!

We spent about an hour aboard the ship. I wasn’t excited about it, but my daughter really wanted to go. I am glad we did. There were people all over ready and willing to answer questions. It was such a unique experience.

My husband and I walked around the ship and it was very interesting. I love that you can walk it at your pace and that it wasn’t terribly hot. There were coast guard guys trying to tie up masts and that was cool. Good time!

My wife loved this ship. It is amazing to see the condition of this ship after so many years. Great stories and descriptions from the staff on the ship. You have to go through security to visit this ship.
