I was looking for somewhere to eat on my drive from Boston to Newport and was directed to Fall River. Boy wasn’t I in for a treat. The Cove Marina restaurant overlooked the battleship cove. What an amazing view and sunset.

Self guided tour of the battle cove area. Good variety of equipment and vehicles to see. Vietnam helicopters, submarine, battleships. Tickets are valid for 2 days when you buy. Different routes of the USS Mass are colour coded to assist.
