Tour the Last Destroyer Escort Afloat in the United States in Albany, New York
Tours will be offered in New York starting April 7th.
I for one, am a huge fan of boats, ships, basically, anything that floats, I mean my favorite movie is Titanic...LOL! Seriously though I love ships, especially the ships that have had a part in protecting our freedoms over the years. That's why something like this is a must-visit for me.
According to News 10, the USS Slater is set to reopen its doors for the public to visit the last Destroyer Escort afloat in the United States on Wednesday, April 7. This incredible ship is located at 1 Quay Street in Albany, New York. It'll be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10AM to 4PM each day until November 28.
If you'd like to make plans to take a tour, no reservations are required, but if you'd like to reserve a certain time you can call them at (518)-431-1943. New guided tours start every 30 minutes and walk-ins are always welcome. Admission to tour the destroyer escort is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, $7 for children, and free for those ages five and under.
Also with COVID guidelines still in place across New York, for the safety of the staff, volunteers, and visitors, all people are required to wear a mask while aboard the ship. They will also be keeping all tour groups as small as possible and will have the ship disinfected on a regular basis.
