Amazing to know that this was where one of the earliest revolutionary war battles was fought. Thank the Bostonians for pulling us all to freedom.

A lot of good history and a beautiful view of Boston and Cambridge. Didn't get to go to the top of the tower because of the long line but everything else was great.

Get some exercise climbing to the top and enjoy a nice view of Boston. Don’t expect much, but just enjoy the monument for what it is. The museum is cute and has sketches of alternate designs for the monument. It’s worth a stop on the...More

Situated in a nice neighborhood, the views are nice and the atmosphere is peaceful, and good for reflecting on the past.

Beautiful site within a very nice neighborhood. It's a bit of a hike to get to, but if you take the trolley to the USS Constitution, it's about a 15 minute hike from there. Be prepared to walk uphill. Just follow the freedom trail and...More

Ended up hiking a top Bunker Hill and had totally forgot that it was a somewhat steep and tough hike. Once up there though, the views of the city are spectacular!

We walked up to the monument and walked around it, but didn’t not walk up the steps to the top. There isn’t an elevator, and we had walked the Freedom Trail, so we skipped the walk up. After that we went to the museum. There’s...More

If you're not too into history, definitely read up on this battle. I love history so I find it fascinating. The neighborhood surrounding the monument is beautiful as well. You can climb the 294 stairs inside but they were grueling for me. If I had...More

The area surrounding the monument is grassy and a nice place to relax, have a picnic, etc. but there are no benches to sit on. The climb up inside the monument is grueling even for the best in shape. The stairway is very steep and...More

If you love history, it doesn't get much better than this. This is a place where a hard battle was fought which had huge consequences in the end. I did not climb to the top, as climbing a lot of stairs is too straining on...More

Charlestown
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
