Very much a location in which both beauty and 'satisfaction' will be in the eyes and the mind of the beholder. Must admit, even though I love history, and enjoy visiting Boston and its myriad small towns and villages, seeing Lexington's famous green was rather a letdown. I didn't expect an OTT Disney-style setting, but given its importance to the USA of today, I did expect rather more of a 'visitor experience'. It's a nice enough place to stroll across, or to sit and think with an ice-cream or a coffee, and the staff at the tiny visitor centre are affable and helpful, but there really is very little to see or do. I'm not saying the parallel is exact, but having been this year to see the Gdansk location where the first shots of WW2 were fired, I found it sombre and moving, but also a worthwhile way to spend two or three hours. Quite honestly though, once the ice-cream has gone and the coffee been drained, you'll find yourself looking to move on. It was intriguing seeing coaches pull up, disgorging shedloads of US visitors, as they all seemed to be looking around for something more. If there was a 'middle' rating between average and VG, I'd use it, but couldn't for the life of me give it a VG.
