This is an important part of American history, Brilliant presentation, the kind that doesn't bore children & doesn't talk down to adults.
I resent having to click on couples when I am traveling with my adult daughter.
This nice public park in the center of Lexington is an historic site where the American Revolutionary War begun in 1775. The town of Lexington provides free tours of the Battle Green (check the nearby visitor center for timing).
First go to the visitor center just to the east of Buckham Tavern site. Find out if they are running the free tours on the Green. If so, latch onto one. The guide for our tour was knowledgeable, experienced and interested in what and how...More
The events that occurred on the 18th and 19th of April 1775 are recreated every third Monday in April (all weekend events). I have been to Boston several time but this was my first full scale re-enactment. I was very impressed with the re-enactments. They...More
At first glance the green seems smaller than you may have imagined. It is situated in the center of town and features a minute man statue. It is the statue almost everyone has seen a picture of at some point in time. An image of...More
This is a marvelous place to visit. They have a guide who gives you a tour of the grounds that tells you history that is not found in the history books. Known to the people of Lexington and their history

From such inauspicious beginnings to the greatest nation. How a few brave men so thirst for freedom that they would risk it all. Now, all these years later it is sad to think how much we take our freedom for granted.

This is the place where the great American Revolutionary War started (though folks from Concord may disagree). There's a few markers but otherwise its just another public park. A few kids were playing frisbee on this hallowed ground when we visited. Stop by the nearby...More
These are volunteers that dress up in period clothes, and are very knowledgeable about the historical facts that took place in Lexington, right on the green. I’m unsure of the hours, but you will find them most all day... More
These are volunteers that dress up in period clothes, and are very knowledgeable about the historical facts that took place in Lexington, right on the green. I’m unsure of the hours, but you will find them most all day, walking about the green, waiting for visitors to approach them with questions. It’s all done for free. Hope this helps.
In addition to the Green, Lexington has three historic sites you can tour (the group ticket for all 3 sites is $15) and you can walk between each: Hancock Clarke House, Buckman Tavern and Monroe Tavern. We spent a whole day... More
In addition to the Green, Lexington has three historic sites you can tour (the group ticket for all 3 sites is $15) and you can walk between each: Hancock Clarke House, Buckman Tavern and Monroe Tavern. We spent a whole day here, plus there is a visitors center and a trail for hiking, biking. The green itself could be seen in an hour, but there is so much more in this area if you have time time (also Minuteman Park is in short driving distance) and appreciate the historical aspects. Enjoy your trip!
