Welcome to Concord


Just up the road from Lexington, Concord also is deeply historical but the similarities end there. Concord has far more land than Lexington, being located somewhat off the beaten path outside of the Route 128 beltway and accessible via only one single highway, Route 2. On any given commuter morning, Route 2 is a parking lot, and Concord residents have few other choices. This has made Concord a very tough city for Boston bound commuters to live in, but for those working out along I-495, at home or in nearby Burlington, the Concord location is not that bad. On the plus side, Concord does have a stop along the Fitchburg commuter line, so if you do commute by train, access is no longer a problem. Aside from being difficult to access by car, Concord is wonderful. There is plenty of land in Concord, so your money goes much farther than in Lexington and having several acres of land is more plausible. The schools are top notch, the town is safe and beautiful with biking trails (including a portion of the Minuteman bike path) and some neighborhoods stretching into hilly countryside that you would imagine couldn't possibly be as close to Boston as it is. Concord has a wonderful town center, is liberal and welcoming to people of varied opinions, and has great town services. Concord is also the home of Walden Pond where Henry David Thoreau lived a simple life while writing his famous book Walden. Today Walden Pond is a protected treasure, encompassing woods and walking trails around the pond, as well as a small beach nearest to the Route 126 entrance. Restaurant tips: The Colonial Inn has great food but also that old fashioned Inn feeling that will bring you back to another place and time. For great Irish folk music, check in on Thursday nights to hear John "Fitz" Fitzsimmons.
