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
History abounds in the area and the Greens are at the center of it. Where the 300 British marched early one morning in 1775 and met some 120 colonials standing on the green. An unknown shot rang out and the British shot down a dozen...More
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

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!
