Know Before You Go
Everybody tends to refer to it as Castle Island. Parking near the fort is a pain. It's often easier to park along Day Blvd but no further than Shore Drive.You gan get there from the Mass Pike or 93 but if you are from out of town go 93 to Columbia Road exit (#15) and Columbia meets up with Day Boulevard at a lovely round-a-bout.Today you can visit the Fort, but this is a popular spot in Southie so it's great for people watching too. There are a myriad of joggers/walkers, a great playground for kids, a causeway walk that loops around pleasure bay and finally Sully's. Just trust the following statement: eat there!
