“Great Location To Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2015 NEW

Castle Island and Fort Independence is a great place to visit. Not only for its history, but the scenery and the different things that you can do. In the summer. There is swimming, jog, walk photograph picnic and enjoy great views of the Boston Harbor Islands

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015 NEW

Castle Island offer some of the best views of the Boston Harbor. Total hidden gem. The loop around Pleasure Bay is one of the best walking / running routes in all of Boston.

Salt air, fishing, walking, biking and Sullivan's (Sully's) for burgers, dogs, clams and rings. A taste of Southie and great views!

“Nice hang on a nice day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2015

No need to take the tour to enjoy this location. There is an active fishing pier, a fantastic 2 mile walk, amazing views of the Boston Harbor, fast Boston food, and picnic areas. If its your 1st time, take the tour. Watch out for the possibility of jets just overhead!

“sullivan and a harbor stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2015

We always enjoy a lunch outside at Sullivan's and the a walk around the island. Beautiful views of the harbor and its a great place to people watch. There is a playground for kids and its also a popular spot to walk dogs. One of the best free attractions in the city!
