    Good walking place! Great food at Sullys , beach area is nice too!

    Free tours of the fort that last about 45 min was cool but it's the only way they'll let you walk around the inside.
  • Antonelli F.
    On nice days or weekends, the parking lot is jammed. If you can park outside the lot and walk the beach or boardwalk in. Sullivan's is worth the line.

    So much space to park! Also, you can get a spectacularly clear view of airplanes landing on the runway at Logan.

    Great place for a walk or run. You'll typically catch a nice breeze, especially while walking the sugar bowl. Good good at Sully's

    Neither a castle, nor is it an island, but still a cool spot to spend some time reflecting.

    When possible, visit it on a weekday morning in the fall. Plentiful parking, less crowds, but still great. Plus, Sullivan's has super cheap breakfasts.

    This "island" has actually been connected to the mainland since the 1930s. The island hosts the oldest continuously fortified fort in British North America, Fort Independence plus a fishing pier. Read more

    Best views of Boston Harbor anywhere. Causeways that go way out into the Harbor. Views of the islands, sailboats, the Boston skyline. No cars or noise. Sullivan's has great burgers, lobster rolls, …

    Park down near the beach, not on the numbered streets. The residents have enough trouble finding a parking space near their homes.

    Great place for a walk. And historic, including being a place where E.A. Poe, the Boston-born author and critic, was stationed during a stint in the army.

    take the tour, it's worth it and then you can get a deluxe burger with fries from Sully's - perfect afternoon date

    Don't park right next to the island. Instead, park on a numbered street in Southie and walk. Fewer headaches and more exercise.
