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.

I am personally not a history lover, but if you're in Concord, this is really a place you should go. It's a pretty walk if anything!

If you are in Concord, you must see the historic North Bridge. If you're lucky a gentleman will be standing by the bridge in a red uniform and ready, willing and able to give you a full history of the North Bridge. He'll even take a photo with you.

I'd heard the story plenty of times. I'd read a few books on the topic. I stopped in the Minutemen visitor center and seen the presentation just prior to my visit here but I still wasn't quite prepared for how impactful it would be. I was simply awestruck. I've done plenty of historical sightseeing to lots of cool spots (Ft.... More

It happened here on April 19, 1775, the first armed resistance to the authority of King George who had made life impossible for the Colonists. As an American, this is hallowed, thought provoking ground. It's mind boggling to think about the brave men who stood up to such a powerful king and army. One cannot help but feel very proud...

...but the wife wouldn't let me. This is a fantastic journey back in time, a must see for anyone who loves history. It's a short walk, and worth it.

Start at the bridge end parking lot and explore the bridge and the river. Then walk up to the main house which is the visitors center. The kids can freely explore the passages in the garden and then do a quick tour of the exhibits in the building. We have lived here for many years and my kids never got... More
