Covering sites where it all started in Lexington and Concord, I always bring visitors to here. Naturally the outdoor sites such as the Old North Bridge, the spot where Revere was captured, and about five miles of the road the British regulars took to and from Concord is open year 'round. No so the Visitors' Center with its excellent introductory... More

I was slightly apprehensive on the drive to the park, half-expecting an overdose of tourist-driven extravagance. But the whole area is maintained in a simple, honest, reverent style. It's easy to imagine those momentous events happening right where you stand. We visited on a drizzly day so there were no other visitors, no guides, no noise . . . and... More

Patriots rode this route to summon their neighbors; Now you can trace their path on foot, bicycle, or hoverboard. The trail is enhanced by revreations of historic buildings that capture the feel of 18th century rural life in Massachusetts. The place is popular, on weekend afternoons, too popular. It is big with dog walkers

The entire park gives one a sense of being in touch with that important April day. The house on the hill -- it is steep so park up top if hills are a problem. The long hill, the meadows, the small river, the bridge, the two graves, the path back to Boston, Wonderous.

It was amazing to walk these incredible acres and feel history come alive. Park rangers give outdoor lectures during the day and can be quite interesting.

It truly is a trip through history. The walking tour is great by yourself, and once you settle in for the movie about the battle it is outstanding. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a few hours of enjoyment.

Fabulous sense of what the men and women sacrificed to help this country be born and the price they were willing to pay for our freedom from tyranny.

The free video and interactive map of the whole park should not be missed. This is a beautiful site, especially in the Fall, and an important place to take children.

This is a great place to go in the fall, with the autumn colors in full splendor. Unlike nearby Walden Pond, pets are welcome
