I grew up in Massachusetts but never visited this park until a recent return trip with my son. We will definitely go back there! What a fun day, even on a rainy and cold spring day it was a great place to visit. Loved walking the North Bridge to see where the "shot heard round the world" took place and... More

To stand on the North Bridge, where "once the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard 'round the world"....it gave me chills. Such a historic spot - the very birthplace of the Revolution. Felt emotion I did not expect, and the view from the bridge included the memorial to the British soldiers who were buried there. Such deep thoughts... More

We didn't have as much time as we would have liked in this park! Make sure to leave at least half a day! We went to both visitors centers - in one, there was a multi media show about the area and the history. In the other part of the park, there was a statue of a Minute Man, ranger... More

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

I have walked Battle Road twice and it never fails to impress. If you are looking for a walk that can last 20 minutes to 6 hours with awesome history thrown in- this is it. The nature is beautiful and you can walk or bike it with friends or alone without worry. I encourage you to make sure you are... More

This is a well managed park with about 5 different parking lots, so you can stop and look at the sites and walk the Battle Trail. Two of the car parks have toilets. There are information boards which point out places of interest, but it is worth getting a leaflet from the Minute Men Visitor Centre to get more detail.

This is an interesting area with the emphasis on history. Don't miss the video in the Visitors' Center as it will provide context for the surrounding areas.

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 before visiting any of the other sites. There's no A/C in the Lincoln visitor center... 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 you can visit a site or two then move your car to another lot to... 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 what it was like. Very powerful.
