Castle Island Tours and Activities
In 1928 a strip of land was used to connect Castle Island to mainland Massachusetts, and while this destination for outdoor recreation and history is no longer technically an island, locals still refer to it by its original name. Castle Island is home to Fort Independence, and was one of the main military bases for the British during the American Revolution.
Today, Castle Island attracts travelers and locals alike who are in search of outdoor recreation and leisure. Visitors can wander the boardwalk, picnic in open green space, fish into the bay, take in views from a scenic overlook, swim and enjoy grilling and shower facilities, too.
Travelers can spend an afternoon soaking up the sun on Castle Island or take one of the guided tours of Fort Independence on a visit to this iconic Boston destination. It’s also possible to check out the island from aboard one of the city’s brunch or dinner cruises, too.
