This town is so pretty and historic. While some people can be snobby because of the wealth that exists, there are also a lot of genuine and caring people. I have best friends here that I know will be in my life forever. Concord gave me such an amazing childhood experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything! Only thing is that is extremely white and there is almost no diversity which really bothers me.

Simply the best town in the state to grow up in. A gorgeous suburb with a town center that is second to none (Lexington is really the only other town in the area with a center of this caliber). Concord has been featured in a variety of movies with good reason- it truly is a picture-perfect postcard of a New England town visually.

The town is literally bursting at the seams with history; you cannot walk five five without coming across some historic touchstone that people from around the world will come to see.

Concord is the perfect place to raise a family; the public schools are world class, the parks, walking trails, and other town facilities are picturesque (the library in particular is the most beautiful library I've ever been to).

It's an expensive town to get into (my parents got lucky and got in back in the 90's before housing prices got completely out of control), but if you can find a way to afford it, it is an unparalleled place to live.
I enjoy the history and culture of the birthplace of America. The people here are nice and friendly. And they have not forgotten to restored all these historic sites. It is a beautiful getaway 25 minutes outside Boston. When you get out here you can really see the conservation department out here has taken their time and been diligent about keeping his area as pristine as it once was. Locations like Walden Pond and White Pond who Henry David Thoreau called The Jewel of the forest are great getaways for fishing swimming boating hiking and all types of summer activity. Concord Library is a historic building one of the oldest libraries in the country. The building has a marvelous Victorian design with original windows the inside is even more impressive than the outside. There's a lot to do here in town with many good restaurants novelty stores and some really nice churches. Some of the oldest gravestones in the country or in this part. People on average are pretty friendly here.
