The Bunker Hill Monument reminds me of a scaled down version of the Washington Monument in DC. I had to climb the 294 steps but I was required to stop about 4 times, warning - it's pretty steep, took me a few minutes to get...More
I finally stayed on the tourist bus all the way around and I found this stop one of the most interesting. The staff here tells the history, even had a demonstration of the old guns. The tower was not open due to when hot outside...More
Visited as part of self-guided section of Freedom Trail. Set up in historic Charlestown. Part of historic park system, rangers can answer questions. Excellent view from top of monument. Getting to top is an excellent workout!
this was a great way to end the Freedom Trail - we got here late afternoon and were just tin time for one of the park staff to give us a talk about the significance of the Hill, the unfolding of the battle here and...More
The monument has a narrow spiral staircase of 294 steps. Two people can pass but it is tight. And once you are at the top the room may hold 15 people to look out the 4 small windows. We made it to the top with...More
Visited the Bunker Hill Monument. Definitely worth stopping by to see it, if you love US Revolutionary war history as it is a very historic spot.

Very disappointed in this site. We coldn't climb to the top of the monument due to the heat (expected for safety).

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.
