Beautiful Bridge!

We walked on the bridge last weekend and loved the architectural design. We particularly loved it at night with the lights hitting it perfectly. A must do while in Boston!

We arrived in Boston on 9/20/16 via the Celebrity Summit cruise ship. Since we had no car, we were only able to see the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge while on our Boston Harbor Cruise.

The bridge pays homage to the bunker hill monument, look left as you are entering the city southbound. The resemblance is remarkable. It is a very pretty bridge that takes some of sting out of sitting in traffic. There is a quirky story related to it where a man climbed up a ladder in the middle of winter stole a... More

Love the bridge. It is beautiful and a lovely entry way into Boston. Helpful to know what lane to be in but decent signage. Best off hours.

I used to love the elevated highway view of Boston as you entered the city from the north. But the Zakim Bridge is so much better than what we had before. It's just beautiful and has become symbolic of Boston. If you're near the Boston Garden, you can walk back toward the State Trooper station and cross the locks to... More

This bridge is amazing. Be sure to walk around the park and under the bridge to get a different perspective. At night, there weren't too many people around though.

It was definitely a beautiful Bridge. You got to see a lot of it considering it seems like there's always bumper-to-bumper traffic on it. But it rises stately and the construction is very beautiful.

We walked right by the bridge and loved it especially at night. It totally makes beautiful pictures and such beautiful architecture. The bridge dominates the Boston skyline and gives it some of its charm.

This bridge holds nothing special in my opinion. Yet again, it's a bridge after all, but there are more impressive ones in the world. It is nice to see it illuminated at night though.

The Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge is a multiple lane bridge crossing the Charles River, linking Boston to Charlestown. Opening to the public in 2003 this is presently one of the widest cable-stayed bridges in the world. The bridge was part of the Big Dig highway transportation project in Boston and was named after activist Lenny Zakim as well... More
