      Interesting Submarine Tour and Memorial
      The USS Bowfin Submarine is moored adjacent to USS Arizona Memorial visitor's center. For a modest admission fee, you can take a self-guided tour of the submarine and get a first-hand look at the crew's living conditions, including their tightly packed bunks. There is also an outdoor waterfront memorial that pays tribute to the 52 submarines and 3,500 young submariners who were lost in World War II.
