The monument is an imposing structure. I knew that I wanted to have the sense of accomplishment in climbing to the top but my travel companions opted out of tackling the 294 steps required. The view from the top is great but it is impossible...More

Bunker Hill was the sight of a battle between the Bostonian 'rebels' and the British Army [It is actually not on Bunker Hill at all but just next to it!] It is a free climb up 295 steps and you get a fabulous view of...More

You can climb to the top of the monument and have a perfect of all directions of Boston. A pretty good climb but well worth it.

The actual monument site hasn't aged too well. It's cool to walk up to the top, but the views were somewhat obscured by scratched and dirty windows. Some of the display cases were in rather the same shape. The museum across the street has some...More

Was a neat experience to know that I was at the exact location of the first major battle of the American Revolution. I walked all the way up to the top of the monument which is 294 steps up then again down, so it gives...More

The monument was a few blocks from an AirBnb we stayed at. We enjoyed the historical information about the battle of Bunker Hill and the construction of the monument. We had a family member climb the monument and it will require a level of fitness...More

The first thing is, this is Breed's Hill, not Bunker Hill. It can be confusing and I think that it is important for most people to understand the why between Breed's and Bunker Hill distinctions. That being said, this is a nice monument to visit....More

If you count steps, this place is for you. The volunteer has great knowledge and well worth sitting down to listen his information. He is as good, if not better, than the museum across the way.

Take the time to climb the stairs - there are 294. It's not for anyone super claustrophobic. It gets quite narrow at the top and not much fresh air flow. Totally free.

Charlestown
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

I’ve never used the trolley to get around because I prefer to walk or use the underground. It’s a very walkable city. The USS Constitution is close to the Bunker Hill Monument and takes about 10 minutes to walk. Have a... More

The monument is 294 steps. Assuming you and your party are in reasonably good health the round-trip is under 30 minutes - it will depend on how much time you want to spend enjoying the view from the top! I have never... More
