The Tourist Attractions in Concord:
Concord is not a huge city with a population of around 43,000 people and it doesn’t have as much to offer as other New England cities like Boston, but there are a variety of things to see here. Concord is a historic city and hence history buffs in particular will find there’s plenty to fill several days of sightseeing.
Concord Historic Attractions
The New Hampshire State House is the most obvious of Concord’s landmarks. It was built between 1816 and 1819 and is still in use today; in fact it is the oldest State Capitol building in which legislature still uses its original chambers. The state house, and the gardens in which it sits, make an interesting visit.
When you’ve finished in the State House look across the street for the Eagle Hotel. Although no longer a hotel this landmark building has stood here for about 150 years and has played host to many important people in American history. Former presidents including Ulysses S Grant, have stayed here, as has Richard Nixon, Charles Lindbergh, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Old houses include the oldest in the city, the Walker-Woodman House on Main Street built between 1733 and 1735, plus there is a Greek revival style house that was occupied by Franklin Pierce before and after he was president.
McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center
A more modern attraction in Concord is the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. This is a planetarium and a space and air museum that was named for Christa McAuliffe who died in the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster, and Alan Shepard the first American to travel into outer space. This attraction should appeal to visitors of all ages with its interactive exhibits, observatory and more.
Recreation in Concord
Golf lovers can bring their clubs to Concord and play on the oldest public golf curse in the state of New Hampshire. The Beaver Meadow Golf Course is 100 years old and has an 18-hole course, plus putting green and driving range. For visitors who prefer hiking there is the Concord Trail System.
