The town of Lexington is famous for being the site of the opening shots of the American Revolution, in the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775.
It's about an hour drive from Boston. We went to a friend's party in Bedford and had time to drive by Lexington on our way home. If you're not interested in American history it's not that big of a tourist attraction.
Other than free music concerts performed by the Longwood Orchestra, there are also free movies at the Hatch Shell on Friday evenings during the summer.
We went last week and it was such a fun thing to watch movie in an open area. They played Grease the night we went. The show started at around 8pm when it started to get a bit darker. And before the show a DJ from WBZ came on stage to talk a bit and gave out some little presents.
Sponsors like Polar drinks and Trader Joe's came to give out free samples.
The people around us were really happy people. They started to sing along and danced along during the movie and it was just so much fun!
That's almost at the ending when they all danced at the graduation Carnival.
