Visiting the site (at the end of the Freedom Trail) is worthwhile based on the historical significance alone. However, I was plesantly surprised that we were able to climb the stairs to the top of the monument, where one is treated to a wonderful view of Boston. This is not for everyone...nearly 300 steps up a narrow and steep circular staircase - so be prepared to get some exercise! Also note: weekdays the last "climb" is 4:30PM; weekends it's 5:30. So if you get there too late, you'll be out of luck.
