USS Hornet Museum

USS Hornet, Alameda, CA
11 reviews

Great attraction featuring WWII, Vietnam, Korea and NASA Apollo history. You get to explore a good portion of the ship plus they have docents who actually served on the ship. Allow a minimum of 2 hours for a very basic visit. They also offer memberships and special events. Oh, the views of SF are lovely too!!

    The closest thing that I have seen to this place are the indoor sports complexes that you see in many Canadian cities. My son went to a birthday party here and I was impressed with the indoor playing fields, the exercise equipment, the climbing wall, and the friendly staff among other things. Lots of parking too. I agree with one ...

    Ballena Isle Marina

    This is a nice marina. There are a lot of marinas on alameda island, but this one is located on the south side of the island, making it immediately available to the bay. Unlike the marinas in the oakland estuary, this means you are can sail freely immediately upon clearing the breakwater, which is pretty nice. There are not too ...

    Who knew you could visit a wineries right in Alameda? Rockwall was opened back in 2008 by the Rosenblum Family. This is the same (founders of Rosenblum Winery (though that brand is no longer owned by the family). The old Alameda Naval Air station has become home to a number of enterprises looking for large spaces afforded by the former ...

    This is a rigorous sailing education. I was initially skeptical as it seemed a little bourgeois, but the instructors are top notch, and the standards for passing a class are rigorous: you can re-take a class if you fail, but no one get a pass unless they prove they mastered the material and can sail in the demanding condition of ...

    One of the coolest gyms I have ever been to... There are THREE soccer courts inside, a basketball court, a BAR, and a full gym... Even a full rock climbing wall and boulder. They do have a kids area, what does this gym NOT have?

    Gayle and I enjoy walking around Lake Merritt. Along the way you'll pass Children's Fairyland, the Cathedral of Christ the Light, and other sites. People watching is good too on this scenic romp. The lake itself is a bit rank in places and the believe it or not there's more Canada Geese here than pigeons.

    If you are a concert-goer, music lover, then The Fox Theater is a must see. The neighborhood is lively and the bay area comes together for every concert. I've probably seen 10+ shows and each is as memorable as the last. The General Admission floor is big and the bars are a plenty. If you prefer seats, the upstairs isn't ...

    Gayle and I paid a visit to the Speakeasy as part of our Yelp Field Trip. I like their beers, especially the Big Daddy IPA and the Scarface Imperial Stout. Gayle later posted an outside picture of me on Facebook with the following comment: "Naturally, we are the oldest people here. Waaaay oldest!" Not entirely, although maybe my relative impatience ...
