Coming from AZ I don't know why you would but if you ever get up to Manitowoc, WI you can hit the maritime museum there and include the USS Cobia in your day.

A little aside, once a year at least a commo crew in that sub fire up their gear and run a special event station for hams, everyone running split. Hams xmit on a ham freq and receive on a Navy freq, the sub sets up opposite. Then hams can put the USS Cobia in their log.

QSL Parties - My dad was a CPO(E7) radio operator during WWII (50+ WPM). When I was a teen, he had a wall of QSL cards from all over the world. It's still a big draw for the ARRL peeps.

Patriots Point

Another place to get into a submarine, the USS Clamagore (1945 ) and a few other surface ships are docked at Patriots Point in the Charleston SC area.
https://www.patriotspoint.org/explore/uss-clamagore/

There is also a nice museum down town which features some of the Civil War era efforts. Charleston is an incredible place to vacation with lots of great food and adventures. I feel the same way about submarines, very intriguing.

Concur about Patriots Point.

The two other ships are the USS Laffey (the ship too tough to die) and the USS Yorktown, also of WWII fame.

Our son's Boy Scout troop overnighted there on the Yorktown.

The Clamagore was in pretty bad shape with rust and corrosion, if it has not been thoroughly restored, I would be surprised if they allowed visitors below deck.

Right across the harbor from Fort Sumter.

Great time.
