Massachusetts is a state with plenty of interesting day trip options. You can head to the big city (Boston), the beaches (Cape Cod), or the mountains (the Berkshires) … but what if you’re just looking for a small town with plenty of peace and quiet? Well, we have just the right small town day trip for you: Concord, a town that may lack in size but makes up for it in fascinating history.

That being said, you can’t leave Concord without a trip to the Concord Museum. There, you can find one of Paul Revere’s famous lanterns and Henry David Thoreau’s writing desk!
