We used our Go Boston Card and toured Lexington and Concord on the Liberty Ride. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the events that occurred on April 19, 1775. She was an awesome story teller. I highly recommend this tour.

We didn't get to take the ride/tour because we arrived too early for their operating season but one of their great staff (Mallory) went out of her way to provide us trip planning advice and even offered to arrange a smaller local tour of Lexington.

This tour provides wonderful information regarding the historical significance of both Lexington and Concord and the Amt Revolution. They also manages to jump 100 years forward and tell you about the literary significance of Concord.

There was no extra fee if you took the Liberty Ride Tour. However, I do not believe the Minuteman National Park charges a fee. There's no fee to see "The Road to Revolution" at the visitor's center. The entire park spans a... More

We did not do any pre-reading, but my daughter had just had the Revolutionary War in school last year. I thought the tour covered it nicely and gave a good chronology.

Can you accommodate a family of five in any of your rooms? Many hotels will only accommodate 4. We are 2 adults and three teenagers. Three nights december 28-31st. we will be driving down from San Francisco.
