I'm glad we took the time to visit the bridge. It was great to stand there and try to imagine what it was like on that very significant date in American history. Don't miss the museum just up the hill

A short walk from the park's visitor center packed with a lot of history. We hit it on a beautiful fall day -- tree leaves were turning yellow and red.

Go early in the morning - there was hardly anyone there when we went before 10 am. The morning fog and the early autumn colors really set a contemplative mood. It's interesting to stand where such history was made.

This location of this bridge is important to the prelude of the American Revolution...but it is not the actual bridge. It burned and there have been at least seven bridges on this site. But still, it is important to see it and the role it...More

Google maps says it's 1.4 miles or 28 minutes by foot, or 4 minutes by car. Either way, it's a pleasant journey along residential streets and through Concord Center.
