There is a nice parking lot across the street and I've never seen it full. The trail leading to the bridge is easy to walk. Along the way are historical information plaques and the graves of some of the British who were killed. The minuteman statue is also of note.

An easy walk through our nation's history. There are benches to rest if needed. History comes alive.

This is such an important place to visit if you like to be reminded of the strong folks who founded our nation and made us free. You will feel taken back in time as you visit the actual battlefield where "the shot heard 'round the world" was fired. Visit the Visitor's Center a few miles away first to see the... More

A very pleasant walk from the Visitors Center to the North Bridge. It is SO calm and peaceful on the way to the bridge yet the sight of a serious confrontation between Minute Men and the Red Coats where lives were lost -the grave for two Red Coats is near the bridge. We've read about this spot and here it... More

Excellent National Park Visitor's Center. The film they offer is well worth seeing and the press button map helpful.

It was awesome to stand on the Old North Bridge site even though the actual bridge is a replica. The plaques and statue were also very touching.

It's amazing to stand in a place where the Revolutionary War began! Bring your walking shoes for the walking path from the Old Manse to the Visitor's Center for some pretty scenery and be sure to bring your camera!

A very nice small place to visit where the Concord battle took place in the Revolution. Gives you a sense of how small everything was compared to the huge Civil War battles. Just outside Concord. Free easy parking. Great for young children and those who aren't too mobile. Wide path. Flat fog round except for the bridge. Easy street to... More
