Set in Boston's National Historical Park, Bunker Hill Monument commemorates the first major conflict in the American Revolutionary War. Though popularly known as the Battle of Bunker Hill, most of the fighting of June 17, 1775, took place on Breed's Hill, where the monument stands today. You can climb 294 steps to the top of the 67 m (221 ft) granite obelisk to discover far-reaching views of the city. An adjacent lodge with exhibits explains more about the historic battle and houses a statue of Dr. Joseph Warren, a major-general who died during the battle's final assault.

  • It's a great place to see the city from, but I hate stairs.
  • Easily accessible free National Park in the heart of Charlestown, Massachusetts. It's got a rich history of Native American warfare, Revolutionary Battles, and the monument itself has a story. It's a nice bit of exercise climbing to the top. Be sure to chat up the Rangers at the info desk for some fun historical anecdotes. They have a top notch cadre.
