Minute Man National Historical Park is a great experience, especially for older children and teenagers. Do not miss the multi-media presentation at the Visitor Center!

This NHP is actually composed of many linked sites marking the events of Paul Revere's ride, the battles of Lexington/Concord and the British retreat back to Boston. Can be made into a full day (or more) if you want to read all about the history of the events leading to the conflict. Definitely go to the visitor's center for the... More

We lucked out and got beautiful weather today which I think made this visit even better. The living history actors were so friendly and full of information. So many sites to see that we ran out of time. I recommend wearing good walking shoes and just walking the whole trail. Or just bring bikes, there were cyclists everywhere and the... More

Our family enjoyed our visit to the MInute Man park. We wish we had more time to explore even more of it. We watched the movie at the Visitor Center (it was excellent!! We were all interested - even my 13 year old son who isn't interested much in history!!) and then drove to the North Bridge where the shots... More

It is a pretty park and great for picnics or just hanging out. You can see the famous bridge and the statue that represents our militia.

You might not spend too long here but it's worth an hour or two. Good informative film in the visitors centre will "orientate" you and help you understand more than just the history of he revolution. Follow the visit here with one to Lexington (Munroe Tavern recommended if you are only going to visit one historic sight) and then to... More

This is where American was born! All the history books from kindergarden through graduate school in a college of university can't substitute for a visit to see the Minute Man sites in Concord.

Most Americans have learned about the Revolutionary War in school, but visiting Concord and Lexington and seeing the free video makes the role of this region so much clearer. I walked a little bit of the path near the Visitors' Center and saw rocks where a sniper had hidden, graves of his British targets, and foundations of old farmhouses. More... More

There are a varitey of ways to visit this park. Regrettably, I took the easy way. Concord is an absoluelty a beautiful little town. I could have spent a lot of time here exploring. The park includes a five mile trail that that has different places to read about things that transpired from Lexington to Concord. I would stop by... More

The Concord - Lexington Battle Trail is the must see here. It is anchored by two visitors centers. Both are very small - but informative. The trail itself is easy to navigate - but at about 5 miles one way, it could be a long walk - and buggy/humid in the summertime. We rented bikes from Concord Bike Tours -... More
