Visiting Charlestown in Boston
Whether you're on the Freedom Trail, visiting the USS Constitution or simply marking the very spot where Paul Revere began his midnight dash, Charlestown offers a wide range of activities, sights and some of the best eateries in Boston.
Charlestown is the oldest Boston neighborhood and while the population has changed over the centuries, it is a sought after residential neighbourhood due to its proximity to downtown Boston. The neighbourhood is located on a peninsula between the Charles River and Mystic River.
The Freedom Trail ends in Charlestown at the Bunker Hill Monument. Take a stroll over to Warren Tavern, which has been around since 1780 and was said to have been a favorite watering hole of Paul Revere.
Parking on 8th Street in Charlestown is available at the Flagship Wharf Garage. It’s a central location, next to the Charlestown Navy Yard and well situated close to the Flagship Wharf residential area. Good location from which to walk to Pier 6 Boston Waterfront and there are over 200 restaurants, bistros and eateries nearby.
