We visited on a cool April Saturday and enjoyed a private tour by a reenactor. He was very good and we enjoyed the history lesson immensely. I would highly recommend the free tours that are every half hour.

To be at the place where our country started when 77 minute men stood against 900+ highly trained British soldiers is awe inspiring and mind boggling. Gerry in the visitor center is an excellent source of information on the battle and local attractions. This is...More

Don't wait til Patriot's Day in April to come to Lexington, MA. The history of the US was started on the Lexington green.

Maybe the single most important place in American history. The men killed there were reinterred in the green in the early 1800s. Really nice place. Very small. Your biggest problem will just be finding it in general and the parking. The visitor center is across...More

If you have any interest in American History this place is a must. Why would anyone touring Lexington not visit it? The Minuteman statue, the memorial, etc. It's easy to reach and there is no cost involved.

You can walk around the Lexington Green at any time of the day, but you should try to go by when the visitor center is open as they have a free map that helps you see all of the places of importance. There are several...More
