Bunker Hill Monument

    So we finally climbed the Bunker Hill Monument. All 294 steps.
I love living immersed in all this history. The Bunker Hill Monument is actually located on Breed's Hill, the site of the first major battle of the American Revolution in 1775. It's free to climb! And if you've never done it, it's always a good one for the bucket list.

  2. What a great day to do this! Your photos are wonderful. I tried to climb once last summer and the monument was closed for renovation! I definitely want to do it though

  9. Funny that you wrote about John Harvards followed by the bunker hill monument, because last time I went to John Harvards, I ended up drunkenly lost in boston and found my way when I stumbled into the monument... I know they are far away from each other, don't ask.
