Concord, Mass., is wonderfully famous, known as the home of
the American Revolution, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson,
Louisa May Alcott, Walden Pond and New London Pizza (OK, the last one
is a ridiculous stretch but, hey, the Greek-style pizza is amazing).
Recently, I had a chance to stroll the downtown area of this quaint New
England town during the fall foliage season and came to the conclusion
that Concord is one of the area's prettiest towns, no matter what time
of the year. What could have become a psuedo-historic tourist
trap is instead an incredibly well-preserved historic town without an
ounce of tourist tackiness. Here are some snapshots of this memorable
New England day:
Leaves on the tree and an
increasing number on the ground at the Trinitarian Congregational Church
on a crisp fall day.
Seasonal colors along with a
patriotic spirit at Concord's Colonial Inn. This is a wonderful
historic inn and restaurant!
Bridge, well -known as the site for the first day of victorious battle
during the Revolutionary War in 1775.
Free Public Library.
Square, first designed in 1635 and designated as a site on the National
Register of Historic Places in 1977.
Downtown Concord has a quaint, small
town look, perfect
for strolling, taking in the historic sites, shopping and grabbing a
bite to eat.
Oh yes, we almost forgot, here is a picture
of New London Pizza at 71 Thoreau St.!
