Buffalo, New York; Naval and Military Park
You might be wondering what a couple of battleships are doing on the Buffalo waterfront.
Well, you never know if Canada might be tempted to attack.
Seriously, Buffalo has the only inland naval park in the country. Shown are the U.S.S. Little Rock (the big one in back) and the U.S.S. Sullivans. The U.S.S. Croaker, a submarine, is also there.
The area also has some planes, tanks and other equipment on display as well as some memorabilia. But the boats are the big attractions, and the tours of them are self-guided.
