Get to know South Boston by visiting Castle Island! Castle Island is the perfect place to spend your day when the weather is nice.Watch the boats move along the Boston Harbor and take a walk along Carson Beach. Take a stroll through the park and look at all the kites flying in the sky. If you visit between Memorial Day and Colombus Day, you can snag a free tour of historic Fort Independence built in the 1800s.
My childhood always consisted of exploring Castle Island and spending hours at the park, but my favorite memory of this place as I got older was spending New Year’s Eve there. This past year, my best friend and I packed up a bunch of blankets (because the winter on the water in Massachusetts is frigid) and plenty of snacks and waiting for the clock to hit midnight. We watched the fireworks explode over the Boston Harbor in celebration of the New Year.
If you do not wish to have a picnic at Castle Island, Visit Sullivan’s Restaurant! Try some seafood by the water for under $20 or something from the grill for under $10. On a hot day enjoy some ice cream too!
