Rarely is naval gazing more beneficial than when it involves a trip to the Battleship New Jersey. This museum/war memorial housed on the great iron ship itself brings American military history to vibrant life. Today's deal re-anchors the price of admission: $7 for one child, veteran, or senior tour (regularly $14); $9 for one adult tour (regularly $18.50); and $18 for two adult tours (regularly $37). Having seen combat in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and docked in the Delaware on Camden's scenic waterway since its decommission in 1991, the "Big J" draws visitors year round. Sit in Admiral Halsey's commander's chair, climb up ladders into the bridge, scooch into the 16-inch gun turret, stretch out on a sailor's bunk, and see the ship's galley, weapons systems, and command-and-control centers. It's enough to give any history buff the best kind of cabin fever.
