“Very interesting palce!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I wasn't too sure what to expect here originally. However once we got there we walked to the visitor center and there were very eager staff there to help you out! There is some information around the visitor center that you can read and get a brief knowledge on what happened here many years ago, but I really recommend staying for the short multimedia presentation! The presentation is very well done, very interesting, and really gives you a good idea about what you're going see and experience. The woman at the main desk in the visitor center was very helpful and friendly!

The walking trail itself is a nice walk, there were many people with dogs, or on bikes. Keep in mind that however far you walk, you do have to walk back! There are multiple parking lots however along the route so you can walk a little, then drive to the next parking lot, walk, and continue.

The houses on the trail are very well preserved and really do paint a picture of what happened here. This is a true piece of history which was very exciting and interesting. There is plenty to see and it's a nice walk, where a lot of it is shaded if it's a warm day.

The North Bridge is also neat to see, there are a couple of monuments around it, as well as a man dressed up who gives you a little more information regarding the events that took place there. Overall it was a great day and I recommend stopping there!

Once again I definitely suggest watching the short multimedia presentation. I honestly went into it not knowing a whole lot about the events that took place there and left knowing the whole story. It was also neat to be able to know a little about the monuments, places, and houses along you're walk. Plus it's free!! Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area! It's an excellent preserved piece of history that is worth knowing and this park does a great job of presenting it!

“Surprisingly Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

The visitor center has a well-done movie, which is actually multimedia with multiple screens and a light display showing the progress of the battle. I was happy I decided to watch it. If I had more time I would walk the 5 mile path. The path us wide and mostly shaded making a nice place to exercise.

Don't miss the multi-media presentation, it was extremely well done. We enjoyed walking some of the battle road path and drove to the North Bridge Visitor Centre.

“Walk and learn about the opening battle of American Revolution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Beautiful long walk where you can learn about historical events of 1775. Keep in mind that if you park at Meriam House and walk up to Minute Man Visitor Center, it would about 4 miles walk, so you would need to walk another 4 miles back to your car. You can also bike this very well maintained trail. Dogs are welcome!

“Stand where it all started”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

And this chapter of history will jump to life. Combine with a walk, bike ride on the Battle Trail and you'll see what Paul Revere was really up to that night.
