We went to Lexington Green while in the Boston area for Thanksgiving weekend. The weather was perfect. The Christmas decorations were going up and we all enjoyed the history of Buckman’s Tavern. For our children born in the West it was a good education. Wonderful...More

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.

It's a beautiful little green in the middle of town with a few statues and historical markers. But it's nice to just reflect and imagine what happened back in 1775. Our American history all Americans should visit.

If you're in downtown Lexington you can't miss Battle Green. Plus there are costumed interpreters standing by to answer any questions you have. We were very pleased with how knowledgeable and helpful everyone was - a delightful day.
