Which train station for sightseeing in Concord?

We are staying in Boston for 5 nights at the end of May and would like to visit Concord for the day. There are two stations shown on the MBTA schedule (Concord and Concord West), which station should we use and is the town accessible from the station?

Many thanks.

You should use the Concord Station. It's probably a 5-8 minute walk into town from the station and is definitely a lovely walk--all of Concord is lovely. From the Station, it's about 1.25 miles to the Old North Bridge in the National Historic Park. You may also want to consider using the Liberty Ride for getting around Concord (and Lexington).

If you get off in West Concord, you will have a very loong walk to Concord center, so don't do that. You'd have to wait for another train coming in the other direction to get back. No taxi stand at the train station.
