Song-osity: Charlestown

Meet me at the Bay State...
[In] our New England town...

Sunday the weather was spectacular so drove over the river to explore Charlestown. I'd been wanting to see Bunker Hill and explore the quaint little area for awhile.

It's such a quintessential New England town. Brick row homes, cobblestone streets, cafes, and narrow alleys.

Centered in the town, high on the hill, is the Bunker Hill Monument. Amazing to think of the history that took place so long ago, right there.

I climbed 294 steps up to the top and took in the sweeping views of the region.

All in all, a wonderful day out exploring my New England town.

And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

The Bunker Hill monument is reminiscent of the Washington Monument, isn't it? I'd never seen it before your post. Thank you!

I love it! When my step-dad went to visit by brother for the holidays they toured all these places. I so wish I could have been along with them.

I. Have. Never. Been. Shame on me! Not back in my college/young married days - not since we've been back! I've tried to drag the hubs, but just might have to venture out without him!

Oh wow, it always surprises me when I see how similar in architecture and history Boston and Philadelphia are. And those things make me love both cities so much. Thanks for sharing at Song-ography.

I love posts like this one. Makes it so I can sort of visit places I have not yet been lucky enough to get to in person.
