Best Ice Cream in Concord

Bedford Farms on Thoreau Street has the best ice cream.  Among the many, many yummy flavors, a favorite is Pistachio frozen yogurt.  Thoreau Street between Main Street and Sudbury Road is a fun shopping area so stroll down the outskirts of Concord center, enjoy the shops and reward yourself with an ice cream treat at Bedford Farms.

What is the best time of the year to get a good price on a house?

I you seek a good price on your next home, plan to make an offer between mid-October to mid-January, or late May to mid-August.  These are times when buyers tend to be focused on holidays and vacations, not shopping for a house.  Sellers, on the other hand, are experiencing fewer showings and often become more negotiable on price.  Please call me 978-807-6202 to find out when buyers may be in danger of over paying for a house.

Natural foods- Debra's Natural Gourmet, West Concord

Debra's Natural Gourmet on Commonwealth Ave. in West Concord Village (a fabulous village), is the best natural foods store ever!  An upbeat store with every thing you are looking for and more.  The best feature of Debra's, beside Debra herself is the knowledgeable, friendly staff.  Oh, and Adam's articles, which are in the newsletter and cover arthritis to high blood pressure and every thing in between with well researched articles highlighting natural remedies that work. Debra's is a Concord treasure.

A Walk in Great Meadows

One of my favorite spots in the world is the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.  With walking trails through the woods, the Concord River, trails into the village of Concord Center, and lookout towers, this natural treasure is a serene escape from the chaos.  You can actually walk from the refuge all the way into Cambridge.  The dike sometimes feels like walking down a narrow dock with water all around, during flood conditions, it is submerged.  Walk from the driveway, down the bike path (railroad bed) to the right and it will follow the entire "pool" (which is more like a lake), parallel to the river and then down the dike to the parking lot.  Walk the railroad bed in the heat of the summer and the dike if you want more sun.  Enter from Monsen Road, off of Bedford Street, about 1 mile from the center.  A piece of New Hampshire, right here in Concord.
