It was very satisfying having a historical interpreter provided by the city of Lexington to be on the Green and provide in-depth information.

On our visit to Lexington, we walked though the Green. A lot of history, as the American Revolution began here. The area is well maintained and has a lot of historical markers telling you about the area. Parking is easy and there are tours of the area. A must see attraction in Lexington.

We were at the Lexington Green and a tour guide who was getting off work approached us (her name was Pat). She began telling us all kinds of things we never knew. For instance, we had no idea that the colonists that everyone always refers to as "Minutemen" were not actually Minutemen at the time of the Revolution. They were colonists. The Minutemen were not formed until after the Revolution. Who knew? And to think I'm a college grad and didn't know half the stuff she told us. It was an awesome experience, and Lexington Center is right there and has some great places to eat. The Lemon Grass Thai restaurant is great and has been visited by Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, among other celebrities. There is also a movie theater, ice cream parlor, information building of the Historical Society, Starbucks, and all kinds of shops. Definitely worth visiting.

This green right in the centre of Lexington is where history of the American Revolution
really started, right under your feet. It is well maintained and there are very knowledgeable
guides on the green to give you ahistory lesson.

I live in lexington so I see the history everyday. But seeing and hearing about the history of
America is great. There are guides to tell the story and answer question. Parking is easy and if you are staying in Boston with a car drive the drive yourself rather than pay a lot of money for the canned tours. Lexington is small and you can walk to most historic places. It is quaint with a few good places to shop and eat.
