Zoo
“When Susan's family started going there in the 1980s, it was called "Southwick Animal Farm" and they were always impressed by the animal's good health, as evidenced by the number of offsprings and the luxuriance of their fur. Even though they have grown since then, they still seem to take great care of their animals and we love taking our grandchildren there. ”

Movie Theatre
“Open from Memorial to Labor day, this is an awesome drive in movie theater! A bit of a hike from Concord, but worth the trip. Get there way earlier than you think, they can sell out quickly. Movies are shown in double-features.”
