On our way out of Boston, heading to NYC, we made pit stops to see the battlefields of Lexington and Concord. As was a common occurrence this trip, we made a bonus side trip to the newly discovered (we saw a sign during our back roads drive) Orchard House– home of Louisa May Alcott, the author of many beloved books, including Little Women.
Up first though, the towns of Lexington and Concord. As I mentioned above, we were headed to NYC, which was about a 4 hour drive from Boston… so we didn’t have lots of time for pit stops; but these were important ones we didn’t want to miss! We had to go slightly out of our way to get here, but it was worth it. We wandered around for about 30 minutes in each place. Here are some pictures from Lexington and Concord. It was a perfect day, perfect weather, perfectly beautiful location.
Our brief stop at Orchard House was brief indeed, and we unfortunately did not have time to tour the house, but we saw the outside and perused the gift shop briefly. When I find myself in Boston next, I will definitely return here!
Up next: NYC!
