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.

Locals had advised it was not worth the trip but I was happy i went and could see the location and get a feel for the distances. The Visitor Center was not much but it was adequate. There were some guides scattered around providing information.

Easy to visit and casually walk around. Well displayed and informational monuments. You can easily visualize the events that occurred here.

A large open area opposite Buckman Tavern with a monument to the Minutemen. Various plaques give you information on the historical significance of the area. Apart from the surrounding historical buildings, there is not a lot else to see. The reality is that you are...More

We were here for a quick atop before an early flight. Very nice town green with so much history. Good town center to walk and eat. Great for the kids and grownups.

The Lexington Green is the location where the British first fired on the colonists. This is a great place to stop for a rest break. The Revolutionary Monument is located here.

Large town center green big enough to picnic, throw a ball, have some fun with dog, children and, on the right day, with historic ambiance: tours, individuals dressed in period clothing, etc. Not far from Buckman Tavern and the Visitor's Center.
