Lexington & Concord Tour

Trip Highlights

Description

Travel 16 miles outside the city to the nearby communities where America was born. You’ll hear stories of brave individuals on both sides of the Revolutionary War and have an accurate, vivid picture of the action of April 19, 1775. History will come alive as your guide retells the story of the morning skirmish on quaint Lexington Green where 77 Minutemen stood against 700 British Red Coat soldiers in the first encounter of the Revolutionary War. A charming town, its Green has been carefully preserved and features several statues and historic monuments. View many colonial homes from the 1700’s around the Green and along our route.

Why take this tour?

Ride several miles past stonewalls and farmers’ fields to the more rural town of Concord and visit the Old North Bridge, where the local militia fired the “shot heard ‘round the world” at the British Soldiers in the first real battle of the War. Stand and view the serene Concord River flowing beneath the bridge, and snap a shot of the famous Minuteman statue, the first sculpture of local Daniel Chester French, who later sculpted the Lincoln Memorial.

 

Especially colorful in fall, the rural landscape is reminiscent of centuries past. Pass by Author’s Row and pause by the 1800’s homes of Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. This tour will elicit a memory-jog of your past history courses and a true sense of the beauty of New England.

 

Duration from starting at Lexington Green, visiting Concord and the North Bridge, to an ending in Lexington is approximately 2.25 hours. Walking along uneven pavement and gravel paths is minimal as most of the scenery is seen driving. A vehicle is necessary for this tour.

 

A side trip to Concord’s Sleepy Hollow Cemetery to visit the graves of Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Ralph Waldo Emerson may be added with an additional 30 minutes. Walking up a short steep slope of approximately 60 feet in length is necessary to view the graves.

Included

  • Local Tour Guide

  • Photographic Sceneries

  • May be extended to up to 3 hours if desired
