We followed the freedom trail up to bunker hill and delighted to find you could climb to the top. It’s a long walk up and gets hot in there. It’s worth the walk and the views of Boston are delightful.

I went up into the monument. 294 steps to the top. You should probably be in shape to do it. If it's really warm, might not want to do it either. Not much air till the top.

The 280+ steps to the top are a nice workout. Views from top are excellent!! Rangers on site to answer questions. No fees.

This area id incredibly pretty, and Bunker Hill is the sight of the first major battle of the Revolutionary War. There's the Bunker Hill Monument that's worth climbing to the top, as well as a museum that I felt was only worth a few minutes.

We finished our long walk on the Freedom Trail at Bunker Hill. We didn't make it in time to see the museum or climb so if you want to do that plan accordingly. The park surrounding the monument is gorgeous and grassy. The perfect spot...More

The area around Bunker Hill and the Hill itself comprise a lot of historic interest quite apart from the monument and museum. It's an area that deserves a little time as you wander around and take in the history of the location and it's past....More

A must do climb. 294 steps to the top - go early in the morning to avoid crowds and heat. They will close the climb if it gets too hot. Part of the freedom trail. The museum is across the street. Suggested they have climbing...More

Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view
