We walked several sections of the battle route, then toured around the Old North Bridge. There is a Junior Ranger packet for the kids. The quick movie at the visitor center was pretty good and one of the rangers was an actor in the movie!

I first walked the battle trail same as the minutemen did over 200 years ago, passing by Samuel Hartwell house and tavern, Captain Will Smith house and grave of British soldier. Trail is easy flat surface and there are several markers detailing significance of all sites. Trail is about a mile. From there, I visited the visitor center where I... More

I cried when I walked over the bridge where the "shot heard round the world" was fired. it was overwhelming to me to stand where our country's history began. this was part of our northeast tour that included many great spots in boston, , new Hampshire and maine

School lessons from over 60 years ago flooded my mind as we walked around this hallowed ground. I was especially moved by the Minute Men Monument that honors the brave men who stood fast and took on a powerful King and his army. They were ordinary men who fought and died for the freedoms that I'm afraid we too often... More

Don't miss the film at the visitor's center, especially if visiting with kids. Engaging introduction for the early role of Lexington and Concord in the American revolution.

Stand on the soil where the brave men began the fight against tyranny and oppression. Breathe the free air and pay homage to those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It isn't a far walk from the parking lot, and worth every moment you spend there.

....whole days, that is. To see actual sites from your childhood history lessons is so cool! "Paul Revere's Capture Site" - what is better than that? We saw more historical sites and points of interest in 1 afternoon car ride that I could have imagined in such a small area. Take a 2nd day to get out and up close.

I live nearby, so walk here often. Nice, wide path. Beautiful, varied terrain: farmland, woods, boardwalk through wetlands. If you park at the Merriam's Corner lot on Lexington Ave. in Concord, you will reach the Hartwell Tavern in about 45 minutes. (Bathrooms nearby too) Also will pass a marker where British soldiers died on April 19, 1775, on way back... More

I wasted a lot of time going to the Lexington Green and the Old North Bridge. They each needed about five minutes. I should have concentrated what time I had to do a longer hike in this Park. Its fantastic. The creators of this park were able to preserve five miles of the historical battle road with land on either... More
