Charlestown, Boston | On Location

While The Town brought the rough edges of Charlestown to the big screen, the neighborhood is much more than bank robberies and gangsters. Located at the northern end of the Freedom Trail, Charlestown and its beautiful brownstones is home to over 15,000 residents, many of whom are Irish Americans. The area has a rich history including the Bunker Hill Monument, Charlestown Navy Yard and St. Mary’s. Charlestown also marks the location where Paul Revere started his famous “midnight ride.”

On this tour, you’ll explore Charlestown filming locations seen in Knight and Day, The Town, Good Will Hunting, Blown Away, The Talk and more!
