Some awesome ships and a great picture spot. A quick pit stop is all that I think you'll need to plan for. Near Wells Fargo center and the Courtyard by Marriott at navy yard.

We stayed at the hotel in the Navy Yard but took a ride to see what else this area had to offer. It's commercialized but not many restaurants or convenience items offered. In the evening you do need to speak with a guard to enter...More
