This historic town is one of the most sought after towns in our area and here are five of the top reasons why we think you should consider a move to Lexington.
- Top-Rated Schools – Massachusetts is home to some of the highest quality schools in the nation and Lexington is a notch above. The public schools in Lexington are highly rated: Lexington High School is ranked No. 9 in the Bay State and No. 64 nationally according to U.S. News and World Report.

The student to teacher ratio is 13:1 and the average spending of $17,496 per student is 64% higher than the national average. The New York Times blog The Upshot shares that Lexington 6th graders achieved at a level 3.8 grades ahead of the national average.
- Rich in History – Every school age child has learned about the “shot heard ‘round the world,” but few actually get to say that they live in the birthplace of Liberty. Lexington, founded in 1713, hosts annual reenactments on Patriot’s Day on the Lexington Green and is home to the National Heritage Museum, the Minuteman Bikeway and other historic sites.
- Livability – This historic town has a vibrant town center with upscale shops and restaurants, green space, forests and over 100 walking trails, 26 walkable conservation areas and access to the Minuteman Bikeway. This charming town is close to major shopping, has its own symphony, natural reservoirs, libraries, museums and a small-town movie theater.
- Easy Commute – Commuting in and around Boston can be a bit of a challenge, but residents of Lexington enjoy a ½ hour commute into the city, quick access to the Alewife T Station in Cambridge and close to Rte 95 and Rte 2.
- Neighborly – The sense of community in Lexington makes it a truly special town to call home. Join neighbors at an old-fashioned Home Day celebration, cheer on local groups at the Patriot’s Day parade or spend a warm summer evening at one of the summer concerts. In the fall, stroll along to enjoy the arts and crafts fair and celebrate the holidays at the lighting ceremony at Lexington Green in December.
