I went to Lexington Visitor's Center to get a map and an idea of what was available. As I was there a young woman in colonial costume left and went over to Battle Green, as it is labeled on the map. She is a free...More

Lexington Green is not huge compared to Boston Common or Central Park. It is a large grassy area where colonists faced the British in April of '75. The Minuteman statue is the significant structure, but that is as it should be. Surrounded by older homes...More

The Lexington Green in the town of Lexington is a large common area which figured prominently in the American Revolution. It is a short walk to the Town of Lexington, has statues and history plaques, and provides recreational space on pleasant, sunny days.

Nice place to check out and get some pictures. Visitors Center is nearby if you need to use the restroom before you get back on the road.

I have a bit of a bias because I grew up near here. That said, I love the Green. The docents are very knowledgeable. The Green is well maintained and you can’t help but take a picture of the Lexington Minuteman with the American Flag...More

The statues and monuments are very inspiring, and the whole green is an easy walk. Make sure to stop in at the visitor center across the street, they have a very cool diorama you must see.

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
