Concord, Mass., is wonderfully famous, known as the home of the American Revolution, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Walden Pond and New London Pizza (OK, the last one is a ridiculous stretch but, hey, the Greek-style pizza is amazing).

Recently, I had a chance to stroll the downtown area of this quaint New England town during the fall foliage season and came to the conclusion that Concord is one of the area's prettiest towns, no matter what time of the year.  What could have become a psuedo-historic tourist trap is instead an incredibly well-preserved historic town without an ounce of tourist tackiness. Here are some snapshots of this memorable New England day:

Downtown Concord has a quaint, small town look, perfect for strolling, taking in the historic sites, shopping and grabbing a bite to eat.

Oh yes, we almost forgot, here is a picture of New London Pizza at 71 Thoreau St.!
