Castle Island

At the far eastern tip of South Boston lays Castle Island.

Host to many fortifications since the English settlement of Massachusetts, the current granite Fort Independence was built in the mid-1800s. Castle Island is open year-round and has many amenities, such as a playground and beach access, as well as laying along the Boston Harborwalk, itself a beautiful way to see metro Boston.
