Travel Photo Essay:
Lexington, MA and the Minuteman
Today, the statue stands tall as part of Lexington's impressive retaining of history, including the Lexington Battle Green, Revolutionary Monument, Old Burying Ground and pre-Revolutionary War buildings remarkable preserved -- the Buckman Tavern, Munroe Tavern and Hancock-Clarke House. Lexington Minuteman National Park, with over 900 acres of open land, has original parts of the Battle Road used on April 19, 1775. The National Heritage Museum offers great exhibitions of American history and current culture in a modern building.
While history permeates the Lexington way of life, there's also enough 21st century offerings to make this well-known town a complete tourist destination. The brick downtown sidewalks lead to fine restaurants, coffee shops, arts and crafts stores and fine walking neighborhoods with incredibly "American" large older homes -- much like its neighboring equally famous town, Concord.
