USS Silversides submarine overnight – Saturday, December 15, 2018, Muskegon, Michigan. We would leave on Saturday around 2:00pm, eat dinner along the way and sleep aboard the submarine USS Silversides. Here is a link to their website: The trip would include dinner, the submarine overnight, a museum tour, a tour of the SS Milwaukee Clipper Ship, and breakfast and would cost about $55. We would return around noon on Sunday. We’ve done the USS Cobia for the past two years and the boys really enjoyed it so we thought we would try something different this year. Adam Hurley is leading this trip.
