This short walk around the green is very interesting. If you pick up the map at the visitors center you can walk around the green with explanations of each landmark. There is often a guide in the park and can answer any questions you might have.

A great place to start your tour of historic sites between Lexington and Concord! If you're lucky you will find a period dressed gentleman at the green that will provide you with a free tour of the grounds. I would highly recommend this tour to give you more of the feel of this world transforming moment in our nation's history.

This is very well maintained by the town. The history speaks for itself. The shopping area of the town is really too close to it. The parking will cost you some serious dough.

We stumbled upon a costumed guide who took around this small green and explained the events of that place in our nation's history. It was great to hear the details while standing where it happened. The only cost is a tip to the guide. Worth the time.

I am fortunate to have a mobile office working in Lexington at least three times per week. One of my favorite things is to walk to grab lunch in historic Lexington and then find a bench or a nice shady spot on the grass to enjoy my lunch. You can watch guides in character describe the history of our nation... More

My wife and I arrived in Lexington too late to go on the Liberty Tour so we went to the famous Green or Common. There we encountered a man dressed up as a Minuteman who offered us a free waling tour of the park. The tour lasted about 45 mins and was incredible! It is amazing how much had taken... More

Lexington Battle Green is a must see for any history buff going to the Boston area. Just seeing the site and imagining and feeling what happened there is stirring. As major historical locations, go, however, it's pretty unpretentious, not a complaint by any stretch, I state this matter-of- factly only. There are just a few monuments on the site, (one... More

Fascinating to think American Revolution started here with the valiant militia. Especially liked the 1799 monument with its touching inscription etched in, the house where a fallen militiaman crawled home after the battle, original church. Very touching.

We visited- as a family, on the evening before Memorial Day. The drive through the New England area is so stunningly pretty that I wouldn't have cared what we found at the end! But we really found the pot of gold - with the re-enactment! Planned to spend half and hour watching the re-enactors but it was so, so good... More
