This entire area is incredibly historic and really worth a visit! This was the location of the first major battle of the Revolutionary War!

We visited on the 4th of July and caught the park ranger talk. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining!

Pretty cool place to check out. You can climb the monument, but you will need to pick up tickets from the Bunker Hill Museum first.

Bunker/Breed's Hill must be the most celebrated defeat in American history. It proved that colonists could stand up to the greatest Army on the planet, the British Army. The monument is awesome, but the park center is lacking in artifacts. A cannon and few paintings. More to see at the museum across from the statue.

We walked all the way up with our kids with great anticipation of potentially going inside. When we got there, it was closed. We took in the view and talked about the events that had taken place there but it would have been nicer if it had been open.

This is one of those places you read about and when you see it history comes alive. We started off walking up and just looking at the landscape imagining what it was like on that day all those years ago. You can walk up the monument but seeing as it was 85 degree out and we decided against it. The museum at the bottom of the hill is on the small side but that's okay because it was free although donations are encouraged.

The monument and scene of the battle is set in a very upscale neighborhood. If you turn the wrong way left on Bunker Hill Street, you head into the projects. The signage directing visitors from I-93 and thru the side streets is poor. I had to ask directions a couple of times. Otherwise, the monument is inspiring...I have ancestors who fought there. Keep in mind, the site does not have battle entrenchments and layouts like a Gettysburg or Antietem site. The N Park Service has a museum across the street which is informative.

But ... It is amazing.

100% you have to go. "
This is the "Bunkers hill" we studied as kids. Historically fascinating site.

Even if you don't climb it, go and appreciate it.

You don't come to see Breed's hill, you come to climb the Bunker hill monument.

The north end of the Freedom Trail is here as well.

There is plenty of free street parking in the area

There is not much to see, but it is nice to see it due to its historic importance for New England. The museum is small but nice and the explanations and service inside is super friendly and interesting. In the summer it is nice to walk outside and take a picture with the monument. The area is not easy to park but if you are willing to walk a little you can find parking further down in Charleston. You will also find a few nice restaurants near by.
