steps to the top

I always enjoying climbing anything, towers, bell towers, etc. The view from the top was brilliant. If you climbing stairs you'll enjoy Bunker Hill.

It was amazing to visit this place. The views from this point are Awesome! The monument is lit at night and is a sight to see. You can read different plaques on the history of the site.

We rode the shuttle to the drop off at the bottom of the hill. The walk up led us through a beautiful neighborhood. Once we arrived at the attraction we had to get tickets to walk to the top. The tickets were free but you had to get them at the gift shop below the monument. Be prepared to climb... More

We visited Boston with my high school as our End of Year trip and we did the Bunker Hill, boy, were we ever out of breath once we got to the top... Even the athletics kids we're exhausted... But let me assure you, it is really worth the workout. You get such a stunning view over the city and it... More

Not only is this a historic battlefield, the 294 steps up to the top provides great views of lovely old Boston.

The park around the monument is nice, lots of people lounging on the grass. The climb was a lot worse than I thought it'd be, but it's worth it. (It's not that bad, I just hate stairs).

We walked the grounds for about 30 minutes. We got the climbing pass and took the 296 trek up the circular stairs to the window at the top. Great site from the top.

Made the attempt to climb this monument and boy that was tough. Once you start, it's too embarrassing to turn around and go down. Once up, you need to let your legs rest because of the strain of climbing, you may start shaking. Just enough room for a line going up and a line going down.

Staying in Charlestown

Neighborhood Profile
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 of Boston at the Bunker Hill Monument. While it’s not a huge area, there are some excellent restaurants. Find your way to the Charlestown Navy Yard, which is a developing area with lots of condos and an additional site for Massachusetts General Hospital research centers. Here you will also find the USS Constitution Museum. After you’re done, hop on an MBTA ferry at the dock on Baxter street and zip on over to Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium.
