The North Bridge is a must see attraction if you are in the Concord area. It is a short drive from the downtown area, close enough to walk. The area is beautiful and the walkway to the bridge has stations to describe the historic battles. In the summer, the Park Ranges are often seen giving guided tours. If you walk... More

I always love visiting the North Bridge; it's unspoiled, so easy to imagine what happened here. For a real treat, rent a canoe and arrive on the water!

The historical context of the shot heard round the world and the beautiful park and walking areas make this a great place to go, even in winter. It is beautiful in the snow.

The birthplace of our revolution. As a mother, the inscription for the Grave of British Soldiers brings tears: They came three thousand miles and died, to keep the past upon its throne: Unheard, beyond the ocean tide, their English Mother made her moan. We go here as a family all the time and bring house guests too. It is beautiful... More

This was a great stop on our visit to Minuteman National Historic Park. We enjoyed the cool woods nearby, and took lots of pictures!

Don't forget to visit this bridge when your in Minuteman National Historical Park. This is the site where the "Battle of Concord" took place, April 19, 1775 and the first battle won by the militia against the red coats. You can also check the memorial for the two British troops who died in this battle.

We walked from the Colonial Inn to the North Bridge. It is a pleasant walk. Once at the North Bridge we really gained a great feel for the first battle of the Revolutionary War.

The bridge where the "shot was fired heard round the world" happened. Lots of signage on the walking paths to explain the day's events in 1776. Old estate on the property has volunteer park rangers to explain what happened and the events surrounding what happened at Concord bridge that day in 1776. Kids, History buffs, everyone will feel history come... More

This is a great place for the whole family to come and enjoy a puppet show. The price is very reasonable. We've been to a few shows and they are always so good and we look forward to coming to more shows.
