We visited this amazing spot with a tour group on 4/6/15. I don't have the words to describe the emotion that I felt at this amazing historical site. This is the spot where the colonial forces stood up to the British empire and inflicted the first British casualties of the American Revolution. For anyone familiar with Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Concord... More

This is a must see if you visit the Boston area. You should stop at the Concord visitor center first so you are reminded of the history. Don't forget your camera!

Really cool spot where the first command to "fire" on the British was given. Beautiful setting. Let's you think about what it may have been like for the early Patriots who fought for our freedom.

Easy access to this famous bridge with a statue of a minuteman and the famous poem, which most New Englanders can recite by heart.

We have visited the North Bridge many times. It's most beautiful early in the morning. We have gone for busy times, like patriot's day, and off season. We enjoy closing our eyes listening to the river, and imagining what life was like during the revolutionary war. Look up at the manse and continue your imagination journey to life before and...

Best free show in Concord--and one of the best in New England. I'm a bit biased, having lived in Concord for 28 years--but I keep going back to North Bridge especially when visitors are in town, plus it's a nice place to picnic. The National Historic Site park rangers give their renditions of the bridge's history several times a day,... More

The Concord Bridgr is a symbol or the American Revolution. The picturesque area around the bridge must have been scary on The original April 19th. Yet the farmers and shopkeepers of Ma. Were able to stand up against the well trained British Regulars. The Concord Bridge, town, cementary and battle road is truly an American Gem to visit. Takes at... More

Its nice place, has great history, but has no value, if you don't have guided tour or already had historic background of this place. We went as family and loved the history.

We enjoyed looking at the lovely Fall leaves here. It is a nice stroll from the Carpark near the Gift Shop however we used a stroller for our 3yo.

It's a great place to soak in the history of Concord. Stop and read the plaques along the way and visit the gift shop. Great for all ages.
