    Water Shuttle

    by Toughluck Written May 3, 2007

    The Water Shuttle is a good way to get to and from the Charleston Navy Yard. It leaves from Long Wharf, (cost is $1.50), near the New England Aquarium and Marriott Long Wharf, to Charlestown Navy Yard. Boats run 7 days a week, and leave from Long Wharf on the hour and the half hour. Ten-minute boat ride.

    Take the Subway

    by Toughluck Written May 3, 2007

    While not always convenient to the specific place you want to go, the subway gets you close and you get to see the neighborhoods in between. Historic North Boston and the Charlestown Navy yard are the furthest walks, but that's still less than 10 minutes.

    The subway cost is $1.25, Red, Blue, Green or Orange Lines connect the city.
