Castle Island is a historic recreation area in South Boston where locals and tourists can have a fun outing. It is no longer an island, being connected to the mainland with a bridge. Protruding into the Pleasure Bay, Castle Island is home to the historically significant Fort Independence which used to protect the harbor. Visitors can walk along the perimeter of the fort, taking in the splendid views of the bay and the island. Jogging, fishing and swimming are some of the activities that can be enjoyed here.
