First go to the visitor’s center and watch their half an hour presentation called The Road to Revolution. That will give you a good perspective of the relationship between the area and the events this park commemorates. Upon the advice of a ranger, we went...More

The old North Bridge was the site of the encounter between the colonial troops and the British in 1775. Can you imagine the thrill the colonial troops had when the British turned and left? They marched back to Boston and were easily picked off along...More

I was impressed with the whole town of Concord and the park is located over several miles. The visitor center is difficult to get to if you have trouble walking. But, the 30 minute film was excellent.

You can cycle through the park. As for cycling from Boston, I believe it took us about 45 minutes to drive from Boston to Concord via the freeways but I’m unsure whether there are any bike routes.
