Battle of Bunker Hill

We walked to this monument which immediately reminded us all of the Washington Monument. Being on the top of the hill is pretty neat in itself. You can see how it is a great... read more

Ended up here at the end of a National Parks Ranger's free tour that began at the Charleston Navy Yard. We started just across from the gangway of "Old Ironsides" aka USS Constitution! We then walked out of the Navy Yard and through the streets up to Bunker Hill. Terrain is hilly so good walking shoes a must and not... More

If you have not been, this is a patriotic stop to turn back the time and understand the Boston Tea Party. Patriots began here and we are still surrounded by their heirs.

Looking around, you know that there's lots of history in this residential setting. I think every history buff should go at least once but for me at least, it was a bit of a disappointment after having been to the Washington Monument.

We walked to this monument which immediately reminded us all of the Washington Monument. Being on the top of the hill is pretty neat in itself. You can see how it is a great vantage point during a battle. You can get a free pass to take the steps to the top. Half of our group decided to do this... More

i enjoyed my visit here, the people of boston i found to be very friendly and the monument was interesting, however it was under construction at the time and made for poor pictures, but the huge Elm trees were quite lovely.

We hiked (we're flatlanders) to the top of the hill and toured the site, then got a pass (free at the visitor's center across the street) to climb the obelisk. They have cameras at the top to check on the tourists and how crowded it is so they can limit the number of people inside. Be advised the stairwell gets... More

I liked the free museum, especially the program outlining the battle. It was very educational and enjoyable to sit through the 10 minute or so presentation. I learned a lot about the battle and the war from this.

In our time of needing to be entertained and wowed in order to keep our attention it is probable that some families or individuals would skip visiting Bunker Hill. Boston is such a hot bed of history and Bunker Hill is a key part of that. We loved walking the Freedom Trail up the neighborhood streets, winding around and looking... More

Not actually. The revolutionaries lost the battle but it was a physiological victory since they nearly defeated the British forces in the first intentional battle of the war. Across the street from the Monument is the museum, the first floor of which mostly focuses on the Bunker Hill Society. The second floor had a low-tech, but interesting diorama and a... More
