This is where the revolution started. The grounds in Lexington are beautiful. The Visitor’s Center has a great museum and show that helps the children understand the impact and importance of the location. It is a must see when in Boston.

From the moment we entered the attractive visitors center we were welcomed and showered with help, maps, parking advice ( and a pass for three free hours!) and were generally treated like valued guests. The staff was stellar!
