Hey everyone, happy Thursday! Last weekend B and I took a mini half day trip out to Concord, MA. As a couple of nature lovers and history geeks it was the perfect setting! Our first stop was the famous Walden Pond, we took the trail all the way around the lake and saw the spot where Thoreau’s cabin stood!
After Walden Pond we went to Minute Man National Park, where the opening battle of the Revolutionary War occurred! You can see the Old North Bridge (of “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” fame) and talk to some incredibly knowledgeable rangers who can give you a crash course in remembering the finer details that you may or may not have forgotten of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, or the war entirely.
In the area there’s also the Concord Museum (which has lots of pieces from the Thoreau family) and the Ralph Waldo Emerson House, which would be amazing to check out if you have the time or interest in either of these fascinating figures!
Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great day!
