Museum has a nice introductory film, but the real magic is all along the road. It is interesting to imagine this slice of history. A great side stop is the sleepy hollow cemetery to check out authors row

Not being one to hike (especially in the summer heat) we drove and stopped at most of the Minuteman park's sites. The short videos in both the North visitor center and the one in Lincoln (near Concord) are great and should definitely be done first...More

Plan to spend at least one full day. You can start at the beginning, the first shot of the revolution, and work your way through to the North Bridge in Concord. There are clear pathways for those who choose to walk the entire park, or...More

It was amazing to be on on the same ground where the British and the colonists fought. There is a deep sense of appreciation for their strength and commitment to fight for our freedom. Soak in the atmosphere and the surroundings, and try to imagine...More
