Fantastic nature walk in America's historic site

This path can get crowded. Yes, there can be a lot of little kids and lollygaggers on one hand, and a peloton of Tour wannabees on the other, but guess what? It's a public park in... read more

This path can get crowded. Yes, there can be a lot of little kids and lollygaggers on one hand, and a peloton of Tour wannabees on the other, but guess what? It's a public park in a major urban area. Stop the kvetching. There is a lot more to like than to criticize. In my opinion, these include: - 20... More

We had a good time here - the video is a must see. The displays are well done and it is free. The staff was helpful and the restrooms were clean.

This is a very nice nature place in the surroundings of Concord. It's a great park for going for a walk or for a run. Apart from that only relevant for the history around it.

Fascinating for history buffs. The start of the American Revolution. But not beautiful or riveting for the ordinary visitor. Too bad it is not isolated from the (pretty but generic) surroundings.

A beautiful spot with a great visitors center but does required a 3-4 minute walk from the parking lot. View the exhibits but definitely see the short movie which will give you the history of the battles in this area and help you feel like you're part of it. There are full facilities including a gift shop. From here, you... More

Combines a great walk with Americana. Kids get to run, adults to saunter, nice film, clean rest rooms, great parking too. A favorite of my guests b

The events of April 18-19, 1775 can be a bit hard to keep straight. Who was where? When were they there? Why were they there? This museum makes these issues and many others surrounding the "shot heard round the world" much clearer.

Lovely park to walk in to get to the visitors centre (4 minute walk). When we got to the visitors centre we went into the theatre where we watched a 25 minute show about the how the colonials overrun the British. This was brilliant. As a Brit they didn't teach us this in school so this was very educational for... More

Good interpretive displays. Many interpreters on site but this might have been related to the Patriots' Day holiday.
