Bunker Hill is off the beaten path at the end of the Freedom Trail, but is well worth the visit. It is truly amazing that an apparent British victory turned to defeat over time. British loses were so disproportionate, especially among their officers corps, this battle affected British fighting ability for some time. For visitors, the hill up to the... More

The monument is a great beacon for those in Charlestown. I also took some classes at the community college there and would stop by and visit this from time to time. But I'd not go so far as to say it's one of the most amazing monuments around.

Just like Zombieland. It's about the cardio. 292 steps to the top of the obelisk. I was kinda tough guy for the first 75, then the stairs got the upper hand. Cool view of Charlestown. Parking is dicey to impossible and if you've ever driven Boston there is no need to comment on that. If you haven't yet, you will... More

youd expect more but what you see is what you pretty much get. you can climb the tower (good but hard exercise) and since youre on top of the hill you might see more of the city. if you want more of a historical experience look elsewhere.

The monument, hill and view of surrounding neighborhood from the hill are lovely. The museum is in an old library building across the street. Maybe we were just historied out at the end of the day, but there wasn't much in the museum to hold our interest.

A great end to this part of the Freedom trail and worth the walk. When you visit two things are a must, listen to the Park Ranger tell you the store of Bunker Hill and climb the stairs to the top. The surrounding neighborhood is worth a walkthrough.

History at its finest! "Don't fire till you see the whites of their eyes!" They ran out of ammo that day, but showed the Red Coats that they were capable of inflicting severe damage on the King's troops. The visit is part of the grander scheme of taking in Boston and the surrounding area including Lexington and Concord.

This is located on the Freedom trail and Breed's Hill is the actual location of the the famous British siege. It is an impressive monument and within walking distance of the USS Constitution.

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
