"West Concord Living"

I live in the Concord Mews which is an apartment complex in West Concord. The Mews has apartments and townhouses and is very family friendly. If you have kids there is plenty of things for them to do at the complex itself. It has a playground, a pool, and a game center for the kids to play. There is also a lot of high schoolers who babysit in The Mews if you ever need a babysitter. This is a good place for adults as well. There is a gym you can go to in the morning or night and they have computers in the main area of the Mews (the clubhouse) in case you need to get work done. The Mews is right across from the Thoreau Club where you can work out do different sports and other activities and this is for both kids and adults. At The Thoreau Club you can take lessons or be on your own and there is also summer camps held there for kids. I usually don't drive into West Concord to eat, though they have a few places to eat there is not enough variety so I usually end up eating in places like Acton and Maynard which are almost the same distance from The Mews as restaurants in West Concord.

In the fall people pick apples, pumpkins, eat a lot of cider donuts. In the winter people usually go out to Nashoba, which isn't that far, to go sledding and tubing which is fun for both adults and children. In spring and the summertime, people tend to bike and hike. You can take advantage of the warmth by visiting historical sites in Concord such as Ralph Waldo Emerson House, Concord Museum, Minute Man National Historic Park, etc. When you are done you can grab a bite or go shopping in Concord where the restaurants and stores are all self-owned.

"Historical Concord"

West Concord is a district of the larger town of Concord. There are many great shops and places to eat in downtown West Concord all in range of an easy bike ride or walk. I have lived in Concord for 17 years. Everyone is very friendly and because it's a fairly small town having only around 6,000 people living in it. Concord, for the most part is a fairly wealthy town. To own a house in West Concord is pretty expensive the average cost being around $600,000. The average income per household is about $120,000. If one can afford the cost of living in West Concord it is a almost perfect town.
Pros
  • Safe
  • Great public school system
  • Historical
Cons
  • Expensive town
  • Not diverse
  • No public transportation

"Most quite and peaceful side of concord"

West Concord is great for going on walks outside. If you have kids the park is a great place to go and have them play with all the other kids there. You can find a whole bunch of random trails that go through all the woods here, for example a main trail here is the "rail trail". There's really cool scenery if you decide to actually go out and find it. If you go into town and walk around, you'll notice how nice and happy everyone is. West Concord is more populated than it was a few years ago. This shows that this place is great to come visit or even buy a home here.
Pros
  • Peaceful
  • Nature walks
  • Good vibes
Cons
  • Traffic around traffic hour is not too good
  • Not many places to eat
  • Hard to find parking at times
