I am becoming very happy with my commute from Charlestown to Post Office Square. But I am becoming extremely happy with my commute from Post Office Square to Charlestown.
Almost my whole walk when I leave work is on the Freedom Trail. As soon as the Trail hits the North End I go left and pick it up on the Charlestown Bridge. It’s a nice walk!
When I leave work I am only about a block from The Old State house.
As I walk down Congress Street I cut through the Union Oyster House which is the oldest restaurant in Boston and the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S. I went here on my 18th birthday and had lobster for the first time. That's a lot for a gal from Wisconsin.
From there I walk down a street that borders the North End and onto the Charlestown Bridge, this is such a pretty view of the Bunker Hill Monument.
This is my least favorite part, the grates always make me freaked as if they'll open. I will have to take a picture when I walk across to prove it is a bit nerve racking. It really gets me when big trucks and buses cross while i'm on it!
