Boston - Charlestown (Chapter)
This is the Charlestown chapter from Lonely Planet’s Boston guidebook.
Follow the Freedom Trail to Charlestown’s aged narrow streets, lined with 19th-century Federal and colonial houses. This historic area is home to the USS Constitution and the commemorative Bunker Hill Monument, yet retains the distinctive atmosphere of a local neighborhood.
- count the 294 steps as you climb to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument, then catch your breath while you admire the 360-degree view of Boston, Cambridge and beyond
- sip an ale at the same bar that propped up the founding fathers in the Warren Tavern
- watch the sun set behind the city skyline from Pier Six
- restaurants & bars
