The first shot was fired here that went on to symbolize the struggle/ war of independence for America from the British monarchy. This fight is immortalized by poet Ralph Waldo Emerson in his Concord Hymn. I crossed this bridge with my family. Come here during...More

Although the Common at Lexington was where the first shots were fired, the battle at Concord and the Old North Bridge is the first one to be fought by both British and American forces. Lives were lost and the fight for American freedom and independence...More

We stopped here during the Liberty Tour. Our guide did a good job painting a picture of the troop movements and battle. The setting is tranquil and it's crazy to imagine the events that transpired there and changed the world.

Again, no problem if you can walk. Just difficult to get to for anyone who has trouble with long distances. I didn't make it to North Bridge but the setting around the visitor center and upper section is just beautiful..

This must be at least 235 years old an has withstood the test of times. Wonderful scenic place beside the great Minute man statue and a walking trail. The small lake under the bridge is surrounded by fall color trees. Nice location.

Loved the history of this place, and even if nothing had ever happened here it would be stunningly beautiful. Putting the beauty into historical context makes it a must-see, in my opinion. Be sure to walk out to the boathouse on the Old Manse property...More

Easy enough to think "no big deal," but actually, it is. Not the original 18th century structure, of course, but close enough. Pretty sure you'll feel good once you've crossed it (and then climb the path to the visitors' center). Kudos to the National Park...More

Within walking distance of Colonial Inn. Very moving and solemn. Did not visit the visitor center. Plently of parking. Suggest this as last stop of Minuteman Park.

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.
