It's interesting to walk through something that historical. The park rangers are knowledgeable and there is exhibit in a building. It's scenic and short walk. You are close to the building where Shots around world was written.

Definitely a place to visit to ponder the role of early patriots and their quest for independence from the British. Parking is easy and the bridge is nearby. Before going to the bridge we watched the video in the Visitor Center which helped place the...More

If you are in this area, a walk across the North Bridge (a reconstruction) is mandatory. Suggest you do this after viewing the presentation at the visitor center. On the day we were there, a volunteer re-enactor spoke to us about why the colonists wanted...More

This is where the minutemen and British started the fight for independence. Whether you are a history buff or not, you owe it to yourself to stand on this bridge. It's an amazing feeling.

Google maps says it's 1.4 miles or 28 minutes by foot, or 4 minutes by car. Either way, it's a pleasant journey along residential streets and through Concord Center.
