The red coats hot on Paul Revere's tail. Take the time to tour the whole village, especially the old houses & pub. Lots of info.

We would have missed so much if we had not taken the tram that leaves from the chamber office which is right next to the Green. It passed by the historic houses of all the famous writers--Alcott, Thoreau, etc. Our tour guide was a lovely senior citizen with that BAW-STON accent. It was a great way to round up the... More

The Green, adjacent to the Minuteman statue was not crowded at all, for a Saturday, and it was a beautiful day to picnic in the shade with sandwiches from the nearby Avenue Deli (great food, quick service, gluten free bread available).

A couple monuments, including a famous minuteman statue. And a neat place to say you've seen, as there is great military history that happened here. But not really much else to speak of here. The town is busy and crowded, so we found it wasn't super easy to just stop and enjoy. Maybe with ample time to spend here it... More

This is where it all began, where the USA began, and it is important to stop here. I do have to say the best thing here is the lady who was dressed in period clothing who gave me such wonderful information and answered all of my questions. Parking is free next to the Green, but it's limited to two hours... More

Lexington Green is just that, a green in the center of town. If you can get thru the traffic and construction AND it is not a weekend, you can park on the street in designated spaces for up to two hours. There is also parking in designated town lots. Lexington Liberty Ride at the Visitor Center will give you a... More

We could not find anyone who was presenting / discussing / demonstrating the Battle on Lexington Green. When we asked at the Visitors Center, we were told that that was managed by another organization. No flyers, no information. very Disappointing.

We took the Lexington Liberty tour. It was very good and informative. We had been out to Lexington before and just felt like we had missed something. The tour brought it all together this time. We also happened to be there on Patriots Day practice for the reenactment of the battle on Lexington Green. It was an outstanding experience.

I agree with other reviewers, take the tour first or at least also. It puts its importance into perspective. It's also a lovely place to picnic.

It's really just a green - BUT when you realize that you're standing on the start of the American Revolution, it's pretty cool. Don't go there expecting bells & whistles. It is what it is, a green.
