USS Iowa -- San Pedro, CA

Last November a group of us took a trip to the recently docked battleship USS Iowa in San Pedro, CA. Built in 1940, the Iowa was active during World War II, the Korean War, and the post-war eras. The battleship was decommissioned in 1990 and moved to its permanent home in southern California in the summer of 2012.

If you're interested in visiting the USS Iowa, now a museum, take a look at the website for hours and information.
