  • It's been a long dream of mine to visit the Emerson house here and take in the environment that produced the ideas and thoughts of the transcendentalists. I thought the guide did a very good job engaging the visitors and connecting Emerson's life to his work.
  • The Concord Museum Across the street has amazing exhibits and if you are lucky enough to time it right, you will see the Concord Independent Batttery drilling their salutes.
