“This was an amazing home exchange to partake in. Lexington has such a rich history. It’s where the start of the American Revolution began. The township is lovingly preserved and the residents show the upmost care for their colonial style homes. Everywhere you look is like out of the pages of a storybook. Les and Bertina shared their beautiful home which has been lovingly curated to reflect the era it was built. The house is comfortable, clean and very well maintained with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. We spent two weeks exploring this wonderful area and we felt like it was just the tip of the iceberg. We would love to return to New England one day to continue exploring all there is to see and to learn about this magnificent part of the world.”

Lexington has been named the second best small city in the US. ( See https://wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-small-cities-to-live-in/16581/ ) We live in a safe residential neighborhood with large trees and gardens. However, it is easy to access many nearby cultural amenities, such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums. the New England Conservatory, Boston Ballet, Boston theaters, and Symphony Hall. Boston's many historical sites, Science Museum, The New England Aquarium, The Christian Science Church Center, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Boston Common, and Beacon Hill, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University are all fun places to visit and easy to reach by car or public transportation. Locally, one can visit Lexington's Visitor Center, historic houses, and the Minuteman National Park. A popular 10-mile multi-use bike trail runs from neighboring Bedford, through Lexington, to Alewife station, the northern end of the Red Line subway in Cambridge..
We are within walking distance of an elementary school, a middle school, and the high school. Lexington offers many activities and enrichment opportunities for children of all ages all year round.
The nearby town center has restaurants, banks, churches, a library, a movie theater, a grocery store, and public transportation. We are serviced by a town bus system, which goes right by our front door, and by the Metropolitan Boston Transit Authority buses, which connect Lexington to neighboring communities and the Boston subway network at Alewife station. The nearby Minuteman bike path connects Lexington to the adjoining towns of Arlington and Bedford. Several large shopping malls are within a 15-minute drive.
We are also within a few hours drive of scenic Cape Cod and the mountains of western Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. We are near the historic Minuteman National Park and the charming town of Concord, where writers Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott, and Nathaniel Hawthorne lived. The nearby town of Lincoln has many hiking paths through wooded and undeveloped land, DeCordova Sculpture Garden and Art Museum. and Drumlin Farm, run by the Audubon Society.
