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.

The huge benefit to Concord is the public education system. It is very highly ranked, and the students who come from it are well-prepared for life and the college experience. Concord is also very family friendly— it is extremely safe and has a very low crime rate. The inhabitants are kind, and there is always an area (or playground) for children nearby.
There are many quaint little shops that are fun to browse, and a few good food places that are affordable (even for teens!). However, many places are overpriced, and there aren't many places to hang around as soon as the weather gets cold.
Can't complain: it's a beautiful town, very safe, lots to do if you like history and literature. It's a family town, so there's no nightlife, but it's a great place to raise kids. Very expensive and not a whole lot of diversity of any kind, but that's true of most suburbs, I suppose. The public schools have a great reputation, although having graduated from the CPS, I can't say they really live up to it. Overall, though, just a really nice place to live or visit.
