The USS North Carolina is an interesting piece of U.S. history that floats on the Cape Fear River. In the summer, classic films are shown on the deck (bring your bug repellent!), but it's a great place to visit year around. The museum inside showcases the ship's role in World War II and is also home to archival collections of rare and unique materials relating to the ship and its former inhabitants.
