A must-visit for any American or anyone interested in American history. This is a beautiful and meaningful park. Respectfully preserved. The story of the birth of a nation is well depicted here. Iconically important.

The American Revolution started here and the Americans certainly have attempted to present history in an accessible and comprehensive manner. Of course, one nation's freedom-loving colonists are another one's tax-dodging revolutionaries, but apart from a few elaborations, the story is well told and the poor old Brits are not treated too harshly. It is even recorded that the soldiers tried... More

This is a pretty cool historical place to visit..we only got to visit one of the few stops of the park because a tornado had hit down the night before but we still enjoyed the part that was open..it's free and you can see and read history and take great pictures. I also got some cool souvenirs from there at... More

This is a huge historical park well worth visiting. I first must suggest wearing comfortable shoes because you will be walking a lot. I parked my car in the minute man visiter center. There are a lot of spots in the lot and the center is around a 4 minute wall to. They have a video explaining the battle which... More

You must stop and visit the Park, it gives you more insight to what took place in April of 1775. Our Park employee, gave my small group some wonderful insight on the battle and events. (I also want to thank him for his military service to our country). The 10 minute video was also informative and walking the grounds was... More

Start at the main Visitor Center in Lincoln to get your bearings and make a plan. We had to manage the park in bits and pieces due to our schedule and generally only had time for North Bridge and Hartwell Tavern (both had outstanding ranger events that brought history to life) as well as a beautiful long walk along Battle...

You need a car for this park. We drove in and stopped at the main visitor center. Watched the movie, talked a bit with the volunteer "soldier" in the lobby area, and made our way to town. There are several stops along the way of places important to our nation's first struggles for independence. We used the map given to... More

The park spreads across several Massachusett towns including Lexington, Concord, and Lincoln. There are two main visitor centers and you shouldn't miss either. One is in Lexington and the other in Concord. Lexington's center is a short walk from the parking area and contains a multi-media presentation about the events leading up to the first conflict of the Revolution. There... More

Thank God for GPS. The national park has absolute no signage to get your from the highway to the park. When you get to the park there is NO signs letting your where to park and where the Visitor Center is located. We parked in a parking lot with on old 2-story house and I actually had to ask a...

Start your trip at the visitor's center for a short, very informative video about the shot heard around the world. Step outside into history, and see where the revolutionary war began. Grounds were clean paths easy to navigate by foot or bike.
