Castle Island Walk and Halloween Castle for Families

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Saturday, October 26, 2019 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Join Family Outings for an easy two-plus mile walk around Boston's Castle Island. The terrain is baby-carriage friendly. Enjoy stunning views of the water and the Boston Harbor, and discover Fort Independence, the oldest continually fortified granite site on British North America,
There will be much to enjoy during our walk: the Harborwalk, watching planes to and from Logan apparently disappear and then reappear on the runway, great views of the Harbor Islands, ships and birds.
For Halloween Weekend, the Castle has a special treat: an entire Halloween Castle! The Castle Island Halloween celebration, featuring magicians, storytelling, refreshments and more, is free of charge and will be open till 4:00 p.m., weather permitting. We will be ending our walk at the Halloween Castle so that all can join the celebration.
For those wanting to have lunch after our walk, Sullivan's, a local tradition serving seafood, sandwiches and ice cream, is located adjacent to our starting point.
