You start with a very pleasant boat trip; it really is an island, no bridges, then a well preserved and fascinating fort with a great deal of history, a civil war prison, for one thing. It is huge and has spectacular views and if you have children that are more interested in running than in history there's lots of grass and nooks and crannies to run around and hide in.

Young and older kids like this place, a lot of places to roam, the boat ride is a nice and scenic trip, a great thing to do on a nice day.

A fun afternoon but bring food and water! Great place to picnic and wander around. Many buildings and even caught an unexpected reenactment the day I was there

I went there on a picnic - its great, huge open well manicured lawn areas - history abounds - really calm and serene and so close to boston. Definitely worth it.
