Walden Pond State Reservation - Concord, Massachusetts

Walden Pond State Reservation is located in Concord, Massachusetts and is home to Walden Pond where Henry David Thoreau lived for about two years.  That time, living in a small cabin just above the shore of the lake, gave him the material to write the book Walden.  It's also said to have given him a better understanding of the environment.  In addition to being a State Reservation, the Walden Pond area is a National Historic Landmark, thanks to Thoreau's legacy.

Depending on the time of the year that you visit this reservation, there are a number of different things to do.  You can visit a recreation of Thoreau's cabin, hike out to the site of the actual cabin, swim in Walden Pond, explore the reservation's 400 acres on numerous trails and take part in tours and educational programs.
