Some of my favorite activities . . . Concord, Carlisle and Lincoln Massachusetts for you and your family!
As you know, I'm always on the lookout for special places. I have put together a list of some of the greatest places to visit in the area...and did I mention that they are all FREE?
Let me know what you think about any or all of the places.
I was recently at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery for the first time! I visited Authors Ridge where Emerson, Thoreau, Alcott and Horne are all buried, I was surprised that way back then they traveled so far uphill...perhaps because it is so peaceful.
