Our one bedroom apartment is located on the first floor of an 1850s era mansard on Elm Street. A quiet residential neighborhood, present day Elm Street formed the boundary for the Battle of Bunker Hill. The apartment, a 15 minute ride from the airport, is convenient to all of the area's attractions including the Freedom Trail, Bunker Hill Monument and Museum, Charles River bike/ jogging path, Science Museum and the USS Constitution. We are walking distance from the Boston Garden, home of the Celtics and Bruins.
Charlestown is a vibrant neighborhood with a great Whole Foods Supermarket (including an Espresso bar, fresh juice and smoothie bar, in-store pizza oven and bakery, burrito and sandwich bar, and candy by the pound). Several very good restaurants in the neighborhood include Legal Oysteria, Pier 6, the Navy Yard Bistro and Tangierino. The Brewer's Fork and Blackmoor are popular craft beer restaurants. Casual and family fare are available at the Warren Tavern, the 99, Figs, Sweet Basil and Blackmoor. Breakfast and brunch can be had at The Grasshopper Cafe around the corner. Coffee and pastries are available at Zume's Cafe and Sorelle's Bakery.
