Charlestown ranks high on my list for Boston neighborhoods, it is place that I would love to live in someday. I love the Federalist style and Greek Revival style architecture and the small size of this neighborhood. Plus the history surrounding the old Naval docks and battle of Bunker Hill make this a truly special place in the heart of Boston.
Fondest memory: I can, and have, spent hours wandering around the streets of Charlestown. Sunshine, rain or snow, I love to walk around the old shipyard and naval grounds with the U.S.S. Constitution in the background. It really makes you feel like you've gone back in time.
The USS Cassin Young can be found near the USS Constitution.
Both are free to board.
+ Museum which is free also with shop and toilet.
