Lexington Tours

Seemingly every city in Massachusetts holds a sort of historical significance, but few are as well-known as Lexington, one of America's oldest towns. Dating back to 1642, it's best known as ground zero for the American Revolutionary War, where the first shot was fired in 1775.

Armchair historians will relish the town’s rich history, which can be seen on just about every building, every street and in every park. Minute Man National Historical Park is a commemoration of the first battle of the American Revolutionary War, while the Revolutionary Monument is one of Lexington's most significant points of interest and the oldest war memorial in the United States. It is also the final resting place for colonists killed during the Battle of Lexington.

There are countless other historical landmarks of note, including the Old Burying Ground with original stones dating to the late 17th century; Munroe Tavern; the USS Lexington Memorial; the Centre Depot; and Follen Church. It's also worth stopping at Mullikan White Oak, one of Lexington's oldest trees.

Modern day Lexington also offers much to visitors, as in the heart of Lexington’s town center sits a variety of restaurants, art galleries, shopping opportunities, the Minuteman Bikeway and Depot Square.

Practical Info

Lexington sits about 15 miles northwest of Boston.
