"Fun with the Family"

Minute Man National Historical Park extends along Battle Road from Lexington to Lincoln to Concord. It was established to commemorate the events that took place along the winding, hilly road on April 18–19, 1775.
Stop at the visitor center on Route 2A for an excellent twenty-five-minute multimedia presentation, The Road to Revolution, that will orient you to the history and sights of the area.
There’s a nice 1-mile walk (follow the markers) to the ruins of the Fiske House, a farmhouse that was in the midst of the battle area. An interesting (but long) hike is the 5-mile Battle Road Trail from Fisk Hill to Miriam’s Corner in Concord.
Also of interest is an entire restored colonial neighborhood centered around Hartwell Tavern. Park rangers dressed like eighteenth-century colonists offer daily musket-firing demonstrations, arts-and-crafts events, walking tours, and historical lectures.
A good book to read before arriving is Sam the Minuteman, by Nathaniel Benchley and Arnold Lobel.
