USS Texas (Battleship Texas Foundation) LaPorte, Texas

As a WWI-era battleship, this is indeed a classic straight-bow dreadnaught. The USS Texas served in both WWI and WWII. Interesting fact – during World War II she escorted convoys across the Atlantic during WWII, then provided gun support for the D-Day invasion.

Self-guided tours are available, or you can take the 3 ½ hour Hard Hat tour and see the pilot house, the ammo handling room, and more.
