Concord, Massachusetts

Concord is a town northwest of Boston, Massachusetts. It’s known for the American Revolutionary War sites in Minute Man National Historical Park. A key battle took place at the North Bridge and is commemorated by Daniel Chester French’s Minute Man statue. In the 1800s, Transcendentalist poet Ralph Waldo Emerson drafted his essay “Nature” at the Old Manse. He and writer Henry David Thoreau also frequented Walden Pond.

Walden Pond State Reservation offers swimming, canoeing and wooded trails. Concord’s literary landmarks include The Wayside, a colonial house that was home, sequentially, to writers Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Margaret Sidney. Alcott later lived in adjacent Orchard House, which inspired the setting of her book “Little Women” and retains many family furnishings. The graves of Hawthorne, Alcott, Emerson and Thoreau are at Authors Ridge, in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Literary and Revolutionary War artifacts are on display at the Concord Museum. The town center, with its quaint Main Street, is known for its restaurants.

When to visit

Concord is a year-round destination. A popular time to visit is during the warm summer months (Jun–Aug) for outdoor activities like hiking, canoeing and swimming. Vivid foliage draws visitors in fall (Oct–early Nov). Winter (Dec–Feb) is cold and often snowy. Patriots’ Day (Apr) marks the first battles of the American Revolution with Minute Men marches and re-enactments in Concord and neighboring Lexington. Some historic sites, like The Wayside, are open only in the warmer months (varies) and/or a few days of the week.

Charming, Quiet, Great Location. I stayed in the Hawthorne Suite, 2 bedrooms, one queen, one twin, beautifully decorated. Spotlessly clean. The kitchenette had dishes, coffee maker, small stove, and mini frig. The bathroom had a regular tub and bath salts and robes were included. Nice after a hike through Walden Woods. Desk with local sightseeing brochures and wing back chair by window in entry area of room. Charming dining room with french toast and turkey sausage brought to your table, continental breakfast items also available. Air conditioning, wifi, flat screen tv, and bed were fine for me. I wanted to move in and will be back as often as possible! I walked less than a mile from the train station, past the library with their Thoreau exhibit, popped into the Visitors Center and picked up a map, then up Main St, around Monument Square, past the Old Burying ground right to the entrance. Lots to do with in a mile, easy to walk..” – Natasha, Trip Advisor
