Lexington is a history buff's dream. Be sure to visit in April during the weekend of Patriot's Day. There are re-enactments of the battles all around Lexington and Concord. The battle green re-enactment is the best and you need to there at 4am to get good viewing. After go to one of the many pancake breakfasts offered around the green.

A great place to have a picnic and enjoy the main street on Lexington. The Carey Library is just across the street and not to be missed.

Lexington is rich in colonial history. The well-maintained town common(green) is where the first battle of the Revolutionary War took place. There are also many other historical sites surrounding the green that commemorate the town's history.

Visited yesterday and it was a very warm and wonderful fall day. After visiting Buckman Tavern my wife and I walked around Lexington Green. Standing there it is very easy to imagine the world changing events which took place there. We really, really enjoyed our visit.

I passed by because I was in Lexington and had to stop. But really should have spent more time at one of the many battlefield stops. But on a fall day, very pretty.

The green is fascinating to visit. Not much to see other than the several markers around the green and the Minute Man statue. But if you are in the area, you must see it.

This was our second visit to Lexington Green. I suggest starting off at the visitor center for a brief history of the skirmish. They have a nice diorama depicting, as well as they can, the events of that day. At the Green, the visitor center will have a guide in period clothes to answer questions. There are several houses you... More

We were on a tour so we had a guide. If you have never been to the area it pays to get on a guided tour. The guide really adds to the experience instead of just looking at monuments. Very informative and entertaining.

Lexington Green and Concord are much closer to Woburn than it appears on the map and worth the trip. The staff at both Information Centers were very helpful and we recommend a morning or afternoon visit.

Well, it all depends upon what you are looking for in an "attraction." This quiet little green triangle, officially known as the Lexington Common, just happens to be the birthplace of American freedom: the site of the first armed skirmish of the American Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775, signaling the start of the American colonies' separation from Britain to...
