OK, the Lexington Green is where the "big battle" on April 19th occurred, with the Red Coats and the New England Minutemen, so you don't want to miss this. It's a ZOO around April 19th, so even though theres like a 5 am re-enactment, and that is neat, it's just a mob scene..... The coolest part of this, is that... More

We took a walk at the Lexington Green and a guide who did a volunteer work approached us to tell us the stories during the revolutionary war! It was great experience to have listened to history by sitting on the lawn!

It's not a huge field. It's in the middle of town actually. The Taverns are just across the street. You can park around the field however it fills up quick. We parked less then a mile down the street in a metered parking lot it was perfect you can see some of the shops and older homes along the way.... More

Walk around the outside of the green to read blips of history on little signs or monuments and in the middle is a tall flag pole stating "Birthplace of American Liberty" The green is beautiful in the fall and so well preserved. With so many historical buildings still surrounding the green you almost feel like you could have been there.... More

We visited Lexington Green as part of a coach tour. We were surprised to see this great episode of American history so accessible to visitors Within a short walking distance, we were able to stroll around the green and read the plaques and photograph the statue of The Minuteman, along with Buckman Tavern. It was a pleasure to be reminded... More

Its a big part of American History and with its proximity to the Taverns and the Visitor Center, its easy to see. The Minuteman statue is a good photo opportunity and the surrounding area screams New England small town. No fees and can be seen without a guided tour. The statue alone is necessary for saying you've been to Lexington
