Concord is most famous as the home of some of America's most distinguished literary talents, among them Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Louisa May Alcott. Families can tour the Alcott Museum or stroll across the grounds at Walden Pond, where Thoreau penned his esteemed work "Walden." Many travelers pay a visit to Authors' Ridge in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where several of these great thinkers are buried. Adjacent to Emerson's Old Manse home, the historic Old North Bridge marks the site of the "shot heard 'round the world," which ignited the American Revolution. Visitors can explore much of this history along Concord's wooded bike trails. Each week, Verrill Farm hosts pancake break- fasts, food festivals and cooking classes. Groups can also grab a bite to eat at local shops like Main Streets Café, Concord Teacakes, the Cheese Shop, Saltbox Kitchen, 80 Thoreau and Bedford Farms Ice-Cream. www.concordnhchamber.com Courtesy Colorado Springs CVB Families enjoy exploring Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs.
