All reviews worth the climb freedom trail major battle climb the stairs great view of boston small museum park ranger walk up worth the effort revolutionary war visitor center take your time nice walk american history the north end obelisk tower
I am in decent shape but was doubting myself about halfway up. There is a sign at the bottom that says to climb slowly, and a lot of (mostly younger) people ignored that. It was definitely worth the effort for the view, but a few...More
I recommend taking the Ranger guided tour of the battlefield. It is a manageable walking tour of 45 minutes. The rangers are knowledgeable and use maps to help understanding of event that led up to the battle along with the aftermath.
While the monument is impressive, what made the visit was the free 45 minute guided tour with a Park Ranger. His knowledge of the history of the battle was phenomenal and he was funny and engaging. The tours run throughout the day so well worth...More
Part of the Freedom Trail and a part of early US history. Had a 20 minute live talk about the occurence of the battle, given by a Park Ranger. Highly recommend. Climb the monument, only 294 steps. Also a museum in the visiter center across...More
Having stayed in the area a couple of times we finally found the time to enter and climb the 294 steps to the top of this simple and elegant monument. The point of the climb is really for the view so choose your day, there...More
The monument is the last thing on the Freedom Trail and involves a fairly steep walk from the road to the monument. However, think about the history that took place on this site. The Battle of Bunker Hill is memorialized here and it is awesome...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.
