Song-osity: Concord

But I've seen it all in a small town...
Oh, those small communities...

Avi, Noam, Ronan, and I took Concord by storm last week. Avi wanted to explore a quintessential New England town, and I figured what's more New England than Concord?

I had never been there before, it is such a great small town. A main street lined with shops and little eateries. We had lunch at a little tavern, found a small toy shop, candy shop, and wandered around Monument Square.

I just love these little small towns. Having grown up in a small-er town area, I still gravitate to the vibe of a small town. Sure, I live in a bigger city, but there is something special about a main street lined with local shops, probably why I enjoy my little neighborhood so much!

also...going to do a better job at promoting my Monday link-up!

Small New England towns. Sigh...When I was a little girl, we lived in Brunswick, Maine. Back then, it was just a small town, kind of shabby around the edges. Bowdoin College is there. I hope they have kept the town up. I remember it with such affection.

Your pix of Concord are be-YOU-tee-FUL!
I was especially taken by the Nesting sign. Lovely calligraphy.

Small towns New England-style are in a class all themselves. True Americana. Love it! Thanks for joining in at Song-ography. And glad you all had such a wonderful visit together.

I see the church where I got married, our reception "Inn" and my favorite shop - Nesting!! I Love that store! Concord is such a treat - especially in the fall!

Tamar, I grew up in a small town (well actually on the farm about 5 miles out). They definitely have their redeeming qualities. Good places to raise children.

One of my favorite places to visit! Lexington and Concord -- such beauty and history. Your photos capture it well. This makes me want to go back right now!

New England is full of wicked awesome small towns. Great collection of images of the little nuggets that make a small town special.

I love small towns. I love the "local-ness" and their unique charm.

(For some reason, whenever I see "New England," that Barry Manilow song comes to mind. Oh, and also clam chowder!)

When I was little we went to Concord and I thought it was the most perfect place on earth.

For who lives in Italy like me, this small town looks so characteristic and reminds me some tv series from my childhood...!
