The whole family will love this free day trip to castle island, in South Boston! Fully accessible by car, there's scads of local history at Ft. Independence, a ringed walkway "over the water" known as The Sugarbowl, while the newly refurbished Jungle Gym and play area draws the youngsters!

Bring your rod for fishing off the pier, a spacious beach and a fun eatery, but check hours for off season. And bring your camera for some of the BEST entertainment for the kids as they count the massive airplanes taking off and landing right over their heads! Enjoy!
