August 13, 2019 – Lexington – Massachusetts

Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Lexington, Massachusetts.  Lexington is an affluent town famous for its history.  It was there that the first shot of the Revolutionary War was fired.   The Center of Town includes:  shops, businesses, restaurants and numerous historic buildings and landmarks.

We had a historic Adventure to Lexington.  I had planned a daytrip but due to the predicted storms we decided to have a local day.  I was quite disappointed but pleased to find a great alternative.

We spent about two hours exploring Lexington.  The day began spontaneously but I was soon pleased to locate a detailed map online, ensuring we visited all major landmarks.  Our stops included the Buckman Tavern, The Belfry, Ye Old Burying Ground, The Minuteman Statue and much more.  We strolled along the cablestone sidewalks, trotted down the ACROSS trail, rested in the lawn, and appreciated the rich history.

My favorite parts of our Adventure included:  the architecture of the historic buildings, following the map to find the next stop on our Adventure, connecting with those around us, and watching Shadow and Wilma appreciate the moments.  In regards to landmarks I was awed by the Burying Ground, and loved the scenic Minuteman Statue.   Both Shadow and Wilma enjoyed numerous grassy rolls, a joyous celebration on yet another fantabulous Adventure!  Lexington is definitely a special place to explore, especially for those history buffs (Rating:  4)

  1. Well! I’d say that Lexington was definitely roll-worthy. My mother grew up in Lexington. At one point in time, my great-great grandfather Benjamin Franklin Brown owned an estate called Edgewood. The land was later divided to become what is now Edgewood Road.
