Plan Your Trip


It’s been said that there are two types of travelers: those with a plan and those without. Now with the help of Utrip, you can be both! Discover all there is to see and do in Concord, book lodging and create a custom itinerary for your trip — all in one place.

If you’re a first timer, a history buff or a brew lover, consider one of the itineraries below to experience the parts of Concord that fit your interests. For shoppers and night owls looking to hit the town, Utrip has suggestions below for you, too.

Or, if you don’t see an itinerary that fits your travel needs, click on the Utrip box at the bottom of this page. Utrip allows you to explore activities, sights, events and local favorites that are happening during your visit. This tool can be used to build a set schedule or to simply fill a lull while traveling.

utripFirst, select your travel dates. You will then be asked to select which description best fits your trip: first-timer, family-friendly, food and wine, culture-craver, great outdoors or you can build your own.

Next, you can tailor your trip to provide results based on budget, pace, level of spontaneity and activities that you enjoy most, like art, adventure, entertainment, cuisine, shopping and more. These are based on a sliding scale and you can go back to adjust these at any time.

Once you’ve fine-tuned your preferences, hit the “plan my trip” button. Utrip will populate recommendations for full-day activities for each day of your trip, including lodging, dining and entertainment suggestions. You’ll then be taken to a page with activities selected to match your preferences on the left and a map of where these activities are located on the right. When you hover over a suggested activity or location, it will enlarge the location of that place on the map. The map also provides you the best route between all locations.

You can view your trip by day, week or a full overview. When you click on one of the recommended activities, a box with more information, contact information, photos and ratings will appear. Here, you have the option to remove this activity from your trip plan. Once you do this, you will be prompted to choose if you would like this space to be auto-filled with another activity, add an activity on your own, or leave blank. You can also add an activity by selecting “Add Activity” at the bottom left corner of your itinerary. To change the time or day of an activity, select week view and click and drag the item to the day and time you would like.

Helpful Tips:

  • “Trip Profile” will give you the opportunity to adjust the preferences you previously selected and travel dates.
  • “Add Activity,” in the top right corner, will take you to a page with each activity in the area. You can filter these results based on interests.
  • “Open as PDF” will load your full itinerary as a printable PDF on a new page, including maps, travel dates, lodging and an estimated budget for all activities.
  • If you create an account, you can save your trip and come back to it later.
