Charlestown has a bounty of sights to see as you wander down its beautiful gas-lit streets. It is home to some of Boston’s most recognizable landmarks including the Bunker Hill monument, the northern end of the Freedom Trail, and the Charlestown Navy Yard harboring the oldest commissioned vessel in the United States Navy, the USS Constitution.
Located on the north side of the city, sandwiched between the Mystic and Charles Rivers, the neighborhood provides homes close to Downtown Boston. Originally including Somerville, Charlestown’s geographic extent has changed dramatically from when it was established in the colonial age, expanding through Boston. A short walk or drive across the Charlestown Bridge will take you directly into the North End, and there is ample public transportation access that makes this neighborhood a great spot for those who work in the city.
There are a few very distinct types of architecture in Charlestown; traditional town homes and brownstone buildings along Main Street, and the new additions of luxury developments near the Navy Yard which include highly-coveted amenities and beautiful city views. Charlestown is known for its close-knit residents and village feel, perfect for those who love the sense of community.
