We visited the park on April 19th, and loved it. We learned so much about the beginnings of the American Revolution. We loved seeing all the volunteers wearing the traditional costumes of the day and the soldiers re-enactments.

This is where you come to experience Revolutionary America as it was in 1776. The park has been mostly restored to its 18th Century self. The Battle Road on which British regulars marched is still there, well-maintained and dirt, and the farmsteads look like they...More

The five miles of trails in the Minuteman National Historical Park are lovely. They're wonderful for walking spring through fall, and are filled with joggers and bikers on weekends. There are small historical markers and sites along the way, so this can be a nice,...More

We actually started our visit at the Concord visitors center. Important to watch the film if you aren't familiar with the events of the opening of the Revolution. Wear comfortable shoes and taken in the Ranger presentations.

The Minuteman Park, one of our National Parks, is located between Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. There are two different visitor centers, one at each end of the park. The visitor center at the Lexington end is by far the most interesting. They have a short...More

Minuteman NHP is definitely worth a look. There were some very historical structures, markers, and visitor center facilities to see. It was somewhat disappointing to stand in the spot where Paul Revere was stopped by the British and realize it is now just a stop...More

Yes, you can with some care. The trail runs near and generally along a well traveled road that will take you to Concord. It has several curves and turns and 'interesting' road intersections. Pending on the time of day... More
