Boston has so many significant historical sites and this is one of the most famous! Teh rangers are very helpful and were happy to answer all of our questions. Can find it easily as it is on the Freedom Trail!

We loved climbing to the top of the monument. The Freedom Trail bricks make it very easy to see this and the other sites in Boston.

Right out of college, I worked and lived right next to the Bunker Hill monument. 30 years later, it is still just as awesome as I remember it. The neighborhood around it has become much more fancy and upscale but has not lost the authentic...More

The battle of Bunker Hill (which took place on Breeds Hill, which is technically where this is) is one of those big, storybook moments for the revolution. The rag tag patriot forces repel the big, bad British army twice before having to retreat, giving us...More

We loved getting out and exploring the Freedom Trail and having the Bunker Hill Monument at the end is a bonus. You must climb the 294 stairs to the top. Great views of the city. Nice little museum across the street about the Battle of...More

A very Historic site. Although the Patriots lost this war, they hurt the British very badly. Go there and learn the history of this battle place. It is a little bit of a climb up the hill to get there, but worth it.

Went on a Sunday late day. Very crowded but so glad we did it. I walked up the monument with both jackets on (turtleneck, Kuhl vest, warm raincoat) and a backpack. Should’ve removed layers! I’m fairly in shape(walk frequent 4+ miles) and I was DYING...More

The starting point of a journey around eastern Massachusetts. As you might know the Bunker Hill Monument is actually on Breed's Hill (also part of the battle). Bunker (or Bunker's) Hill is actually a bit to the north. The monument is within a wrought-iron fenced...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

Can go up and down and see most of what you want to see in an hour or so. If grabbing lunch or something I'd say 1-2 hours max
