USS Lexington

After making it to Texas and spending a couple of days at the beach near Corpus Christi, we decided to treat ourselves to one touristy thing in the area – the USS Lexington Museum. Formerly a World War II aircraft carrier and now a private museum, there were floors and floors (or decks and decks) of things to see and explore – all things science, history, military, and war-related, which is the perfect tourist treat for our family. What topped our list? The top deck full of vintage aircraft from various conflicts, of course, but a close second was the Journey to Space 3D movie (included with ticket price), and the food service compartments (which the boys found extremely entertaining for some odd reason). Here are just a few of the best photos from our visit.
