In September while on vacation in Texas I visited the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, Texas. Being able to see this ship and take time to explore it was the highlight of the vacation for me. The ship is full of exhibits and information on the Lexington herself, aircraft carriers and naval aviation in general, and World War II and Pearl Harbor. There are several marked routes for self guided tours through the ship that let you see much of the ship, and as you walk through the ship there is a lot of information presented. I was really impressed by the amount of information that was presented and the number of areas of the ship that were opened up. If others here are in or near Corpus Christi, or even a few hours away and have time I would highly recommend seeing the Lexington. We drove down from San Antonio to see the ship and visit the nearby aquarium. I have also been to the USS Texas near Houston and the USS Barry in Washington DC, but the Lexington was the most interesting because it was more than just being able to walk through the ship.
