Bunker Hill Monument Reviews & Ratings
This almost 300 step memorial is such a historical icon in the Boston area. Must stop to visit if you ever visit. Please pack some water just in case, and some good pair of sneakers. I do not recommend doing this climb if it is over 90 degrees out, but the spring time is the best time to visit. I have heard that they do close down the steps if it is too hot for safety reasons. There is a beautiful view at the top, and I recommend visiting the prudential tower right after visiting the Bunker Hill to get an even higher view of the city. There is little to no parking here, so I recommend taking the public transportation, or walking if you are in the area. I have visited several times, and it is nice seeing different individuals from all sorts of different backgrounds visiting as well. There is little room at the top of the monument, so I don’t recommend spending too much time up there as more visitors will be joining you in little time. One can easily see the USS constitution, and the Coast Guard base across the ways. If you know your history, then I feel that you would enjoy this climb that much more!
Another MUST see if you are ever in Boston. The history of Bunker Hill, is an important part of our history. You can climb to the top, and I hear the view is fabulous! Be warned, ad the sign at the bottom warns you. Please be in good shape if you do climb to the top, as there is no elevator to bring you down. A well kept monument, beautiful part of Boston too. It's worth it.
There are many Beautiful houses around this monument. It seems like a smaller version of Washington monument. The atmosphere here is more relaxing though. After finish the end of the trail of freedom, it’s nice to sit on the grass and enjoy the day.
Great talk by a ranger. It gave all the details of what happened here. Parking in the area is tough. Hopefully you know how to parallel park. Not easy with those who have big vehicles.
What a great ending to The Freedom Trail. So much history in Boston. The monument is impressive but 294 steps up are tough in a crowded stairway.
