The reenactment of the Battle of Lexington on Patriot's Day morning has become an annual event for my daughter and myself. We have been 5 or 6 times. It is always powerful. If you are a history buff, and are willing to get up very, very early to get to the Green by 3:30 a.m., I very much recommend it.... More

The beautifully maintained green is located right across from the Visitor's Center and Buckman's Tavern (where the Minutemen planned their strategies), A nice memorial statue and flowers sits out in front.

I-95 north to Concord Turnpike, then east on the Tturnpike to exit 56, left. / North at the end of the ramp into Lexington Center. The British were actually "just passing through" on the way to the rebel 'ammo magazine' in Concord. The fact that it all started here was due to the Minutemen standing in their way. Park behind...

You have to go! A young tour guide gives a personal tour in costume, points out the battle lines. This stop will take maybe 20 minutes...combine it with the Buckman Tavern to make a couple of hours.

Thank you to Sarah for the wonderful tour. Even the kids enjoyed it. Lots of history here. Amazing to stand on the spot where it all started. Must see for anyone remotely interested in history.

Although we loved seeing this place, we didn't stay long. We drove around and visited some shops and left about 2 hours later.

Take time to walk around and read all that is on the green. Is across the street from the Buckman Tavern, guides are good. Tour the tavern first, then go to the green.

It is the week of the fourth if July so we stopped. Glad we did as it has history and helps remind us why this is an important day in American history.

The tour on the green was great. George was out there and gave a very informative and entertaining tour. Kept the grown ups and teens entertained.

We visited Lexington Green on a beautiful June afternoon. It was sobering to visit the site where the fight for our freedom started. A volunteer in colonial garb told us about the short battled that fateful April morning. He brought everything to life for us.
