Wow! We have not planned on stopping here, that we saw the sign on the interstate and since we are dedicated Junior Rangers and a national park family, we popped in. I am so glad we did! This is probably the best multimedia presentation we have ever seen and we visited a hundred and twenty Parks! Do not skip this one it is totally amazing! The junior Ranger booklet is a tad bit challenging, but you can do it if you pay close attention in the multimedia presentation and make use of Google!

My husband and I went to the site of Paul Revere's capture last time but didn't go into the Park facilities before, which we did this time. Except for the fact that they didn't have air conditioning, even my daughter enjoyed the movie and she is not into history (teenager). We all toured the Whittemore house and the guide inside was so well versed in the history of the house, the family and the "shot heard 'round the world". The upstairs exhibit on the "controversy" of whether that shot was in Lexington or Concord was great and we all discussed it as a family! It was fantastic having the kids interested in that.
The park is so well cared for and I wish we could have walked the whole trail to see everything. Maybe next time.

As we were we starting our day we began at MMNHP. What a treat, you could just imagine what took place that fateful day. We ran in to a docent who was able to give insights on the events and in the order that they happened. An exciting ,yet sobering day thinking about our nation's history. Walking where our forefather's walked. Highly recommend.

If you want to see it all make sure to bring a sturdy pair of shoes and lots of water (especially if you're visiting during the summer months)! Also be prepared to do a bit of reading as there are a number of informative displays set up throughout the park. If you're not of the smartphone crowd like myself, make sure to bring a camera to capture scenes and displays of particular interest. Don't feel in a hurry to see it all in one day. Take time to process it all. The events that took place here were instrumental in the formation of the United States. Powerful stuff to ponder. Let it sink in and stick with you long after you leave...

It was fun and amazing and humbling to walk the trail that was the beginning of our nation. Being from the Midwest, I had read and studied the history but we don't get to experience much of it.

The trail was very well documented and maintained. It was a nice day and not very hot but do bring water for the walk and make sure that you use your sunscreen.

It is amazing the history that was contained in the walk. We did only part of it and also drove from spot to spot.
