Would recommend that you use an Uber driver to go to the Orchard House. Would also recommend that you go to some of the sights within walking distance (Concord Museum, etc.) to make the trip worth your time.

Actually, if you can get to Lexington, you should check out the Liberty Ride, based out of Lexington, TripAdvisor will not let me paste in the URL. Good Luck. good luck!
