Hi Ladies! I am also planning to go to Groton over the 4th of July weekend...I did alot of checking around on the rooms before booking my room at the Ramada Inn...the prices seem to be higher because it is a holiday weekend. My son graduated BESS on 6/3, and we were unable to attend because of some priorities here at home. His original graduation date was 6/10, and they bumped it up a week because they got done faster. They were actually done a week sooner than graduation, and had liberty and duties that week. I also learned that if your grade fell below a certain average, they require them to attend "Night Study"....@BECKIE....have you heard him mention if he was having to attend night study? Also, I was recommended a book called Flotsam & Jetsam, by Harry McKinney, Rear Adm, USN ret. The book tells stories of his 40 yr career in the Navy...he was a Submariner....I finally purchased it, and I cant put it down. You might want to check it out. I am gonna read it and pass on to my Sailor, there is a picture of the "escape trainer" in the book, and it talks alot about New London
For all of us that will be in Groton during the July 1st weekend, I found the following:
@Defiance my son has had his girlfriend at the time, stay on base, he has to arrange that, but my son's brother and I have stayed at Best Western, #360 on rt#12 it is 3 minutes from the base, they have a restauant on site, with sauna, pool, and weight rm.
not an eligant place, but is not bad it cost a little bit more then you staying on base
I liked Mystic too. I wanted to do a lot more site seeing while I was there but my son just wanted to relax like watching movies in the room. Which reminds me. A lot of people want to stay on base but if you do your sailor will never be able to fully relax because they are still on the base.
I made another reservation to visit my son in August but I am hoping my son will get an opportunity to fly home after TCHNO and before A-School.
