Ride Through History on a Lexington Bus Charter
Rent a Bus for a Revolutionary Trip
On a misty morning more than 200 years ago, musket fire rang out over Lexington. That day, April 19, 1775, is etched in history as the beginning of the American Revolution. Today, Lexington and nearby Concord are a haven for history buffs. Visitors can revisit the past at the Battle Green and Minute Man National Historical Park or tour Lexington's historic houses.
But there’s more to the area than colonial history. Take in a performance by the Lexington Symphony or peruse unique shops. Swim in Walden Pond, where Thoreau penned his famed work, and tour the house where Louisa May Alcott introduced her "Little Women."
And don’t miss nearby Lowell where the old textile mills have been turned into a thriving arts and restaurant district.
