I had a great chat with a ranger for about 30 minutes covering many topics concerning Boston during revolutionary times. Monument itself is downright ugly in my opinion, but marks the end of the Freedom Trail. Don't make a special trip across the river to come here or see the Constitution. Better things to see in Boston.

Impressive, historic, beautiful, shiny are among the words other people have written below. This must see attraction is the starting point of the historic walk throughout Boston and is absolutely NOT to be missed!

This up and down look at the wonderful, distinctive, and red-brick architecture will knock you out. The small little seasonal flower boxes and the care that the residents take in landscaping should not be missed. The beauty of this neighborhood is timeless and classic.

This is an impressive sight to see. Hear the story and look out over the area as did those that defended it and feel the pride and patriotism they must have had.

My favorite area of the city to stroll through. Don't miss Charles Street for wonderful Boutique shops and excellent dining. Also No. 9 Park at the top of Beacon Hill is the best restaurant in the city.

Incredible history...what a tribute to all who fought for our Country. Did not think I wanted to make the climb...but it was fun and worth it. It is a bit of a distance from the center of the Freedom Trail, but well worth the trek over. We did it in stormy weather and it was still worth it.

We were invited to tour the church, then we were invited to go up the stepple we watch bell ringers from around the world. Then they asked us to join in. Wow how many people can say " I rang the bells in the North Church!

Really beautiful view from the top of the monument but a difficult walk up the 294 steps that are of course more narrow closer to the top you get.
