We boarded a trolley and this was our first stop of the day. We spent much more time than anticipated and it was even the day the USS Constitution was closed for maintenance (be aware that is is closed once a week - call to...More
No visit to Boston is complete without visiting the oldest operational warship afloat. The ship was reintroduced to the water 10 months ago, following a major refit and now is again fully complete with masts and rigging.
Amazing, interactive experience for all ages! For a history buff, it was easy to find plenty for me to see, learn, & enjoy! However, there are so many exhibits for the young ones and for those up in years. Seeing the USS Constitution and the...More
I stopped her to visit yet another location from Fallout 4. We were able to see the dry dock and go inside the USS Constitution. The USS Cassin was closed for the winter so we were only able to walk by. We had a quick...More
This is a must see Boston stop. Follow the Freedom Trail to see the Charlestown Navy Yard. Home of the USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned US Navy warship. She never lost a battle.
Also see USS Cassin Young, named for a Pearl Harbor hero.
Active Navy Yard. Need ID and must go through security check point. Everyone there is so nice. We just checked out the Constitution and then headed out, but there is another ship there and a museum. The dry doc is also impressive to see as...More
There is a small ferry that sails from a pier next to the New England Aquarium every 20-30 minutes, and the 10 minute ride to the Charlestown Navy Yard (free if you have the weekly Charlie Card) is most enjoyable. From the Yard, you have...More
We did a trolley tour and stopped off here, our trolley driver was very informative told us lots of history about the red necks and the ships in the Charlestown Navy Yard. It was a lovely sunny day so walking around was really pleasant and...More
A visit to the Cassin Young is a must. A veteran of WW2 and the Korean war. You can only view the main deck and some the rooms off it. You need to take a tour to gain access to the upper decks.The volunteers working...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
of Boston at the Bunker Hill Monument. While it’s not a huge area, there are some excellent restaurants. Find your way to the Charlestown Navy Yard, which is a developing area with lots of condos and an additional site for Massachusetts General Hospital research centers. Here you will also find the USS Constitution Museum. After you’re done, hop on an MBTA ferry at the dock on Baxter street and zip on over to Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium.
