I decided to revisit the historical sites of the American Revolution in the Boston area. I had just finished Nathaniel Philbrick's Bunker Hill and felt I needed to return to where this great nation's spirit of liberty was born. Along the way I stopped at...More

It is definitely worth a trip to the Concord Bridge. It is a short walk from a parking area but don't try to walk up the hill to The Visitor Center. Instead turn right out of the parking lot and then take the next left...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.
