From Boston, take Storrow Drive or Memorial Drive to Route 2 to exit 54B, toward downtown Lexington. Massachusetts Avenue (the same “Mass Ave” you saw in Boston and Cambridge) runs through the center of town. 

By public transportation, MBTA (tel. 617/222-3200) bus routes no. 62 (Bedford) and 76 (Hanscom) both travel to Lexington from Alewife station, the last stop on the Red Line. 


The Lexington Visitor Center, 1875 Massachusetts Ave. (tel.781/862-1450) distributes maps and information. 


Liberty Ride (tel. 781/862-1450) offers a 90-minute narrated trolley tour—conducted by guides in period dress—that connects the attractions in Lexington and Concord. Operated by the town of Lexington, it’s recommended by the National Park Service. It offers four tours daily from late May through October and on weekends the rest of the year. The fare is $28 for adults, $12 for children 5 to 15, free for children 4 and under. Tickets are available online and at the Lexington Visitor’s Center. 


Downtown Lexington is easily negotiable on foot, and most attractions are within easy walking distance.
