Concord, Massachusetts is probably best described through its past residents: Do Paul Revere, Luisa May Alcott, and Henry David Thoreau ring any bells? Concord's influence on American history and culture might lead you to think it's a grand metropolis, but Concord's picturesque, small-town vibe transports you back in time to defining moments in America's history. From Paul Revere's Midnight Ride to the creation of the Concord grape, you'll find endless fascination in the streets of Concord. Book Concord vacation packages today and experience it firsthand.
Picking what to see first might be the hardest part of your trip. Most famous for its historical sites, Concord gives you your pick of locales that have helped color the pages of American history. Notable residences include the Old Manse and the Wayside, which were at different points home to Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Margaret Sidney. Or you can take a stroll around Walden Pond, where Henry David Thoreau retreated from society and wrote one of his most famous works. Revolutionary war sites are numerous and include several homes and farms that played key roles in the Battle of Concord. Concord car rentals would allow for a more expedient trip around the sites, but simply walking down the famed streets gives visitors a true sense of what Concord has to offer.
In keeping with its literary history, every autumn Concord hosts its Festival of Authors. Plan your Concord MA vacations to fall during this festival and see contemporary literary greats continue Concord's legacy. Before you plan your own trip, it would also be a good idea to look into schedules of events at local farms. One farm hosts an annual sheep shearing festival (in the spring, of course) for those with an eye towards rural life.
