Easy to find and really a significant point in history to not be missed. I am a Canadian and my husband as well and found this area just packed full of history. Was very enlightening. Everywhere we went was over 300 years old...amazing.

We saw this as part of a tour from Boston, thus had limited time to fully explore. It is absolutely beautiful, and awe-inspiring as you discover all of the history here. There were two costumed gentlemen near the north bridge; thanks to them for posing in our photos. We wish we had allowed at least a half day to see... More

The multi-media presentation there is great. I have lived in the area and just recently took my grandchildren there. The presentation gave me a much better understanding of the events of April18-19 than I had ever had. The young children with me enjoyed it as well. Plus it is free.

This national park is dedicated to the battles of April, 1775, that marks the beginning of the American Revolution. Located outside of Boston, and the trip to the Lexington visitor's center is an easy trip by car. The visitor's center has a good short presentation that sets the stage for the history in the area. The Concord site is a... More

Minute Man National Historic Park covers a very large area from the visitor's center just west of Lexington right through to Concord (more than five miles). The more adventurous walk or bike the complete length of the trail but you don't need to do this to get a great sense of what took place way back in 1775. If your... More

As is our custom, we viewed the multimedia presentation before touring the park. It was aided in our understanding of the important events that occurred there. The NPS rangers were very friendly, too.

So many interesting things to see and learn about in this park, from films to demonstrations of Revolutionary War weapons to walking and biking trails to historic monuments. A beautiful history lesson.

The town is pretty and very historic, but the locals were stand offish and borderline unhelpful. We found the people in downtown Boston far more friendly on our trip through New England, I guess the locals here just get fed up of the tourists.

I planned to stay in Concord to visit the park. We had a whole day to leisurely go to the Visitor Center, travel Battle Road, go to Lexington, etc. I had expected the park to be self contained but to travel from site to site, you are on a busy road. Getting to Lexington was a bit of a challenge... More

I married a history major and my kids are loving all of the history they are learning at their ripe old ages of 6 and 8. Went to Cape Cod this summer and decided to do Lexington/Concord and Boston for the tail end of our trip. The visit to Minute Man was a highlight. Make sure you check their calendar... More
