Stayed at the constitution hotel and took a night stroll along the Old Navy Yard to enjoy the city of Boston on a calmer level. Safe to say we were not disappointed with the view.

The free to visit WW2 era warship is interesting and free to visit. It is also beside the Constitution ship.

My husband, a navy man, wanted to visit the USS Constitution, which is docked here. This ship is rich in history. Old Ironsides came to life for us as we explored its decks and listened to narrations by navy personnel aboard the ship. We also...More

Remember studying in school The War of 1812? Today I toured the USS Constitution also known as "Old Ironsides." There is also an interactive museum which presents history in an enjoyable manner. A worthwhile use of time.

The U.S.S. Constitution is moored here. I've toured it a few years ago, but currently there is substantive work on the ship and it is often closed to the public. It is a Must-See when in Boston, so inquire ahead of time of its availability...More

The shipyard played a large role in the manufacture of ropes and metalworks for the Navy at one point. Also a major hub for putting ships into dry dock for repair. Fascinating displays - very well done. The USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" - the world's...More

This Navy Yard houses the USS Constitution and Museum. It is clean and well-kept. The Naval officers assigned here are informative and friendly. The day we visited access to the ship was available to the public. There are also great views of the Boston skyline...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
