California travel guide Veronica Hill tours the USS Midway Museum in San Diego in this episode of “California Travel Tips.”

First, a bit of USS Midway history: During its 47 years as a US Navy aircraft carrier, the ship evacuated more than 3,000 Saigon refugees, led operations in the Persian Gulf, and rescued more than 1,800 Americans in Mt. Pinatubo.

When it was built in 1945, the USS Midway was the largest ship in the world, weighing 69,000 tons and measuring 1,001 feet.

In 2004, the aircraft carrier opened as a museum, making its permanent home in sunny San Diego. Today, it’s one of the most popular San Diego attractions.

USS Midway Tours are available on the ship’s Island. Here, docents will take you up to the captain’s bridge and control tower, where you’ll learn more about the Midway’s daily operations.
