We enjoyed viewing the monument as well as the walk through Charlestown however, the climb up is not for those who are not in good shape! My husband made it up the 290 + steps but he works out daily. My brother in law who...More
If you like history as much as I do. This is one you should see. This rangers are very knowledgeable. This is No elevator. You have to walk up the 294 steps. It's a massive workout, let me tell you. Had a to stop a...More
Remember it is a hill so walking will burn some calories. The museum across the street provides a narrated diorama which is excellent on the battle of Breed's Hill. Both properties clean and well cared for.
If it's not crowded when you get there, go ahead and do it. If it is crowded, it's not worth it esp. if you're claustrophobic. We got there around 1 p.m. on a summer Sat. and it was hot and crowded. There were so many...More
This is the 16th stop on the Freedom Trail but we did this before the 15th (USS Constitution) as we could then get the ferry back.

A nice place to visit if you're into American/British history, don't try to climb the steps of the tower unless you're pretty fit, they are steep and it's only a narrow stairwell so you have people coming down as you're going up and vice versa,...More
Loved listening to the 20-minute talk regarding the battle at Bunker Hill. Also the shooting of the musket. Climbed the 294 steps to the top to see wonderful views of the city. Restrooms across the street at the Museum which is also very interesting to...More
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit. Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge from the North End or take the scenic water locks to Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll down cute Main street, wandering up the windy residential streets to Monument Square, where you can learn about the city’s history along with a great view
of Boston at the Bunker Hill Monument. While it’s not a huge area, there are some excellent restaurants. Find your way to the Charlestown Navy Yard, which is a developing area with lots of condos and an additional site for Massachusetts General Hospital research centers. Here you will also find the USS Constitution Museum. After you’re done, hop on an MBTA ferry at the dock on Baxter street and zip on over to Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium.
