Fort Warren is located on Georges Island in the Boston Harbor Islands. The ferry ride from Boston to Georges Island was about 30 min and provided some amazing views of Boston and the surrounding areas. The fort itself is a former Civil War fort that was used for various purposes throughout its existence. Now the fort is almost completely open to the public. You can walk through most of the fort, including the old barracks, down dark and narrow passages, climb tall, winding staircases, walk along the battlements, and everywhere in between. The top of the fort provides some amazing views of the Boston area and the other harbor islands. There’s a lot to do and see here. We spent about 2 hours exploring the fort, but you could easily make a day of it if you wanted to have a picnic and relax and enjoy the views. We had a lot of fun exploring the fort and would recommend it to anyone interested in history or just interested in getting away for a day and visiting a beautiful harbor island.
