Nice neighborhood to walk through. Beautiful views. I really enjoyed the history lesson. There were a lot of school children there making the right staircase a bit crowded but they emptied out quickly

Recommend going if you are doing the freedom trail, going to the top is free you just need to get tickets across the street. Have to be in good shape to make it to the top!

I'm not scared of heights but as I was walking up the tight winding steps, no windows in dead head, I did feel my knees buckle. Got to the top, amazing view, but I knew I had to get back down!

Bunker Hill is located just a few minutes walk from the USS Constitution and offers fantastic views across Charlestown and Boston. The walk up the hill contains some beautiful scenery full of old-world style architecture and is part of the Freedom Trail.

Great museum with all sorts of colonial history. Bill Nye is featured in a video. Washrooms are on the lower level. There's a noteworthy "no firearms" sign on the front door.

History? Check. Beautiful historic neighborhood? Check. Views of the water? Check. Places to sit or stroll? Check. Well kept landscape? Check. Parking - not so much! One of my favorite places to visit in Boston.

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
