The Best of Lincoln/Concord Area

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott, Minute Man National Park, the Lincoln Concord area is steeped in the tradition of both literature and history. A focus on preservation, local agriculture and the arts makes for a great day trip from Boston. Local farms allow chefs to highlight the best seasonal ingredients on menus that embrace the farm to table dining experience just a short drive west of the city.
