Bunker Hill has some great stories and is full of local history. I remember coming here as a kid, but I appreciate it more now.
The monument is an impressive and important part of our nation's history. It's also a chance to get a great view of the Boston area if you can handle the 294 steps to the top. The associated museum is not without interest, but the panorama from the top (see attached photos) is the real reason to do this. It's also... More
This was the last stop on our Freedom Trail on a HOT June day. Make sure you get your ticket to go up the monument across the street at the museum. It was a great view of the city after a small run up the monument.

We arrived just in time to do the last climb of the day which in hindsight was good as it meant there weren't too many people to pass... More
yes historical, but Charlestown is hard to get to, and if you don't feel like climbing, there isn't much to see. So not a must see, but ok.
This is at the end of the Freedom Trail. This was the site of a very important battle in our fight for freedom and set the tone for the revolution. From that standpoint, it should be visited. Visit the museum and listen to the presentation at the monument and you will learn a great deal about the battle. The monument... More
