Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ok it's a very pretty bridge. I just don't get why a modern bridge is even listed when all you do is walk or drive over a bridge.

This two pillar bridge connects the North End downtown area with Bunker Hill. It's an impressive structure, which was nice to walk over, drive over and see it from the harbor cruise.
Certainly, one of Boston landmarks.

This bridge has become one of the iconic landmarks in the city. You see this as a backdrop on many news shows. Great design ... really nice at night. Next to TD Garden

I recently walked across this bridge to reach Charlestown. It wasn't until I reached Charlestown that I was impress by how it looks. Nice change from the older looking bridges in the area that connect Boston to Cambridge.

Very cool design. Very effective way to get across the water. Very iconic bridge that tells you that you are entering or leaving Boston. Love it at night, too.

This bridge reminds me of modern bridges in Rotterdam and Dublin. It’s known as the widest cable stayed bridge in the world and was built as part of the Big Dig in Boston which took out a raised highway through the center of downtown and put it underground. The Leonard Zakim Bridge replaced an old bridge snd opened in 2003. The concrete mirrors the Bunker Hill Memorial nearby, while the spindles or cables mirror the rigging of the USS Constitution at the Boston Naval Yard also nearby.

This is the most beautiful modern bridge in Boston named after a great man Leonard Zakim. It runs from Boston to Charlestown a section of Boston. Do check out if visiting Boston. You will be impressed.

Worth gratuitously driving north/south on Route 93 just to be able to see it up close. Beautiful day or night!

Its with out doubt the most famous bridge in Boston, its simply stunning in design and in operational use to allow Boston traffic to move around the city, its gleaming when the sunlight hits it and worth a walk near to it to get a good view.

I normally do not get excited about a bridge, but this one is a piece of art. Worth seeing during the day and at night with the colored lights.
