The Liberty Ride is the best way to visit Lexington and Concord. Ride along the historic Battle Road while your costumed guide recounts the exciting events of April 19, 1775, and the literary legacy that defined American identity and culture. In air-conditioned comfort, you're taken to such famous spots as Lexington Battle Green and the Old North Bridge where the militia faced off against British Regulars. Visit sights central to the start of the American Revolution, including Minuteman National Historical Park, where you can walk the Battle Trail, and the National Heritage Museum celebrating American history and culture, as well as the homes of Concord's greatest authors.

The Liberty Ride offers stops at:

  • Lexington Battle Green, where the Lexington militia confronted 800 British Regulars as the sun rose on April 19, 1775.
  • Buckman Tavern, where the Lexington militia gathered the night before the Battle. (Free admission with Liberty Ride ticket)
  • Lexington Visitors Center, offering information and hospitality, a diorama of the Battle of Lexington, and a memorial to the U.S. Navy ships bearing the USS Lexington name.
  • Minute Man National Historical Park. View "The Road to Revolution" (a moving multimedia presentation) and exhibits at the Visitor Center. Free admission and parking. The park includes the site of Paul Revere's Capture, Hartwell Tavern, Battle Road, Meriam’s Corner (where British regulars first came under fire as they retreated to Boston), North Bridge (where colonial militia men first fired upon British regulars), Daniel Chester French’s Minute Man statue, the grave of British soldiers, and other battle monuments.

  • Orchard House, the home of Louisa May Alcott and her family and setting for the beloved Little Women. (Free admission with a Go Boston Card)

Comments about Smart Destinations Lexington: Liberty Ride:

Boarded and stepped into the past with Paul Revere himself as our guide. Our 72 year old tour guide did a fantastic job making the revolution come alive and recreating all the events between Concord and Lexington. Trolley is an exceptional use of time to get to many stops between the 10 miles of historical markers. Do this if you do nothing else in Concord and Lexington.

Comments about Smart Destinations Lexington: Liberty Ride:

Found it a great way to see everything first with the history explained. Recommend that you plan two rides... The first all the way through without getting off. Then focus your stops on the important locations to you on the second one. Start early in the day for best use of trolley.
