If you are a fan of any of the Concord-based literary giants of the nineteenth century, then you know that a group of them went to live together in a commune (!) called Fruitlands. I believe Louisa May Alcott, who came here as a child, referred to it as "Apple Slump". Although the experiment only lasted nine months, it had a big impact on the American perspective. Don't miss this gem of a property, now a series of museums and trails.
View the house where they lived and explore the other museum buildings which include Transcendentalist artifacts, Native American arts, and other collections.
The views here are absolutely lovely and there are delightful walking trails for short hikes or longer jaunts. There is an attractive gift shop. Many also enjoy the elegant meals served indoors and also in the screened outdoor area. Bring the family and make a day of it! I also like the nearby Oxbow sanctuary and its enormous beaver dams.
