Things to do in San Diego could be a long list including the San Diego zoo, the beach and fine eating establishments. One place that everyone should visit is the USS Midway Museum, the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier. This high tech museum is great for people of all ages.
Children will particularly enjoy the three types of flight simulators. The first one is the Strike Fighter 360. Here visitors can experience aerial stunts such as rollovers, spin and loop as they pretend to fly missions.
The second one is the Mach Combat where visitors can use equipment very similar to train Navy pilots during Vietnam. Visitors even get the opportunity to try their hand at dog fighting.
The third type of simulator is the Flight Avionics where visitors can participate in flying simulator missions during Iraqi Desert Storm.
All three simulators provide a very unique experience for the participants.
Lucky guests may also be able to attend actual military ceremonies which often take place onboard the USS Midway.
