the green is where the local militia gathered on April 18-19, 1775 on their way to Concord to fend off the Brits. There is nothing much to the green except the great history of the place.

Wonderful and historic. A must see, make sure to walk around the town and visit the museums. Lexington is rich in history, beautiful and peaceful.

Made a quick visit here on a very hot day. Really enjoyed seeing where the war for American independence began. Traffic is heavy in the area, be sure to use the crosswalks. Directional signage from the highway could be better, but no other complaints.

We were planning on walking around the green on our own, but a guide was there providing some information. His accent was rather strong (Boston) and it made it difficult for my kids to understand him, but I thought it was great. We then looked...More

You will appreciate the history of this site even more, as it is recounted by the Guides dressed in period clothing, who walk about the green. They really bring the story to life!

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.

We rented a car and drove to Lexington and Concord. Beautiful little town we reached early. Drove by the green and came back when I noticed the "Parker" statue. Folks embrace their history here very passionately but quietly. The green story is filled in my...More
