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.

I liked having a guide, dressed like a minute man available to answer questions and tell stories about the Minute-Men. It was helpful that it was a beautiful day for walking around there.

How much can you say about a lawn with a couple monuments and a cemetery? The old (?) Tavern as historical attraction was cool. We didn't do the other houses because it was cost prohibitive.

The statue and the green were very much like seen in pictures. There were some markers on specific locations but unless you are more of a history buff than I it needed someone to tell you what you were seeing. See Liberty Ride tour where I got that

The Lexington Historical Society has done an amazing job preserving the historical artifacts in the local area! We were going to have to miss a tour due to a plane flight and they were extremely accommodating! Thanks y'all! Fort Worth, Texas

I'm giving this five stars because of what the Green stands for, not because it is such an exciting place to be (except perhaps on April 19 each year, early int he morning). It looks like what it is, a typical NE village green. But it's historical importance can hardly be measured because the first shots of what became the... More

If you have the chance to visit here, don't miss it! You can almost feel the history that was made in this place so very long ago. The visitor's center is just across the street and the staff is very helpful. There's a few gifts for purchase, bathrooms and some really good literature. Well worth the stop and very interesting!

Saw the LMM practicing on the green for an upcoming affair! They were friendly, & loved to discuss history! The Lexington Green overall is in the middle of a quaint town that is charming.
