Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Bunker Hill includes the Monument, the statue of Colonial William Prescott, the Museum (located across the street), and the Lodge. The Bunker Hill Monument was created to remember the Battle of Bunker Hill during the Revolutionary War. The Battle occurred on June 17, 1775 when the British defeated the Americans.
We had a dark Adventure to the Bunker Hill after a long walk at one of our favorite local parks. Upon arrival I immediately spotted lovely holiday wreaths adoring the lights around the park. We immediately headed up the hill to the Monument. There was an outer loop that we began trotting along, Wilma thrilled to spot numerous city squirrels. We took our time checking out the grounds and appreciating the moment. In between the neighborhood buildings we could spot views of the city, and bridges, hard to capture on camera but a beautiful perk to this simple park.
After trotting the outer grounds we made our way closer to check out the kiosks, the Colonial William Prescott Statue, and the architecture of the lodge. There was a Hanukkiah Menorah at the base of the Monument, and several benches to sit and enjoy the location. Bunker Hill is a very small but really was lovely. I can just imagine the view from the top of the Monument is beyond spectacular. So glad we could Adventure to Bunker Hill today (Rating: 3.5).
