The Lexington Green is the location where the British first fired on the colonists. This is a great place to stop for a rest break. The Revolutionary Monument is located here.

Large town center green big enough to picnic, throw a ball, have some fun with dog, children and, on the right day, with historic ambiance: tours, individuals dressed in period clothing, etc. Not far from Buckman Tavern and the Visitor's Center.

This is a rather small area, but historic. A guide came up to us and told us a bit of history about each monument, which was helpful. My husband is more interested in history, and he liked it. This can be a nice, quick stop.

This is much smaller than the battlefield at Concord, but it's still very beautiful. It also doesn't have the same reverent feeling that exists out there, but that's probably because it's in the middle of a bustling area. There is a minuteman statue and a...More
