“The Shot Heard Round the World.." !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Lexington's Minute Man National Park is preserved and respected as an important site for the first of the War of Independence with Great Britain. There is a museum, and there are memorials; a notable one is one to the British soldiers who lost their lives on this side of Pond fighting for the Royal Cause.

“Don't miss the hard-to-find rangers' building with great film!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The 20-minute free film by the National Parks Service was fantastic, informative, and entertaining. The theater was designed to make you feel like you were standing at the door of a house of an eyewitness of the battles.

The exact location was difficult to find on both Google Maps and on Trip Advisor.

“HOME OF THE SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

It is always interesting to visit historic battlefields and see, somewhat, what the area looked like when we became a new country. There are many interesting exhibits and places where history was created. The NPS staff are always friendly and informative.

It's a rich historical place, I enjoy the solitude so I make sure I avoid the times there are school trips.
