we'd stayed in Boston, and done a lot of the Freedom trail there. Visited Concord to see Orchard house, and thought we should see the North Bridge. We were "battled" out and weren't going to bother with this, but one late afternoon, the paths looked inviting. SO glad we did. This was the one place we felt the history. Imagining... More

Walk out of the visitor center for the Minuteman Park and the historic 5 mile "Battle Road" beckons. I walked the historic road (which is actually a well worn path) each night and on one occasion went about 4 miles out and 4 miles back to the visitor center). You will encounter, joggers, bikers, families, and history buffs all along... More

I think others have done a good job of describing the details of this attraction, so I won't redo those excellent reviews. Instead, I'll come at it from a different perspective. When I heard "national historic park", I frankly thought this would be touristy and boring. In fact, we almost didn't stop. But it is well worth a short pause... More

This is a nice place to visit it only takes a few minutes to walk down to the bridge and see the monuments this is the place where the shot that was heard around the world first took place . The City of Concord Massachusetts the homes are all historical and it is a fun place to drive around

The surroundings were beautiful. The history was as thick as fog, and I was choked up and teary-eyed almost the whole time (I'm passionate about history). You can tour the grounds at your leisure and there are rangers who are very knowledgeable and friendly. They'll answer your questions and give you as much or as little history as you'd like.... More

This national park covers a fair amount of ground and history. As I mentioned in another review - the Liberty Trolley- you can stop at a number of different places within the park. When we returned on our own, after our trolley ride, our first stop was at the Minute Man Visitors center. In addition to some nice displays in... More

I recommend starting at the Park Visitor Center. Here, the Park Rangers will supply a map and point you in the right direction. Its about a quarter mile walk to the visitor center from the parking lot. The visitor center offers a small gift shop. Because of the distance between the historic sites we drove, but we saw people biking.... More

freedom and greatness. A "must see" for all that love this country. Make the tour from Concord to Lexington. Walk the "road" the minute men trod. Attend the movie at the visitor center. Read the monuments. Awe inspiring!

We walked around the Hartwell Tavern but so glad we were able to catch one of the Minute Man demos (we saw the one at 3:15pm). This is located just left of the Hartwell Tavern. The talk lasts about 20 minutes but it ends with a re-enactment of prepping and firing a musket.

The battle road trail is the draw here. The Visitor's Center has a theater with a short but informative video and a gift shop. If you park in the main lot, the center is about 700 feet down the path. If you get back on the highway and turn into the drive just east of the main lot, you'll find... More
