My dad served on the DD220 which was a very similar vessel. It was most interesting to see how he lived for the three years on such a small area. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient with all my many questions
We walked around this Destroyer with not much idea as to the conditions of the sailors, well, we were surprised as to how cramped it was. The information boards were very good and we could picture many scenes that were explained, you felt you were...More
The USS Cassin Young was right next to the USS Constitution, so we wanted to see it too.
Free to board and view the upper level only. They had a 45 minute tour of the lower decks but we didn't have the time to do...More
The USS Cassin Young is in the Charlestown Naval Shipyard and was an active ship during World War II. It has been preserved and docked as a monument to the brave young sailors who served on this ship. It is well preserved and the tour...More
The USS Casin Young served in the Pacific and survived two kamikaze attacks. It's free to visit, you can wander around her deck and parts of her interior. It doesn't take long because she's not huge but it is worth while.
After I took the ranger guided tour, I heard the announcement another guided tour was starting. I took that too! It was done by a volunteer. They were both great! So much information that you can't find just by looking. If you are interested in...More
My wife and I visited during a week-long trip to Boston in early July. We had come on the USS Constitution cruise (which is a harbor cruise that takes you to the USS Constitution, not a cruise ON the USS Constitution) and walked around on...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.
