best places rich single concord massachusetts
Population: 18,008
Single: 30.5%
Median family income: $176,986

Lovers, fighters, thinkers, dreamers: You'll find them all in Concord. Site of the colonists' first victory in the American War of Independence, the town is also steeped in a rich literary history. Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott and Henry David Thoreau all called it home.

Meet a fellow revolutionary on Patriot's Day to reenact the "shot heard 'round the world." For some quiet reflection, sit together on the shores of Walden Pond to contemplate the simpler life. If you're into more modern luxuries, grab a bite at a nearby café and head to the dozens of little stores that line downtown's Main St for some local shopping.
