If you’re coming to visit the Merrimack Valley, there are things to do and check out any time of the day. But if you need to fill up your morning time slot on your vacation itinerary, or you’re heading home in the afternoon but want one more memorable experience before you go, here are four things to do before noon in the Merrimack Valley.

Breakfast at Four Sisters Owl Diner

Every morning should start with a good breakfast, so head over to Four Sisters Owl Diner in Lowell, MA. Open daily from 7 am to 1 pm, the diner serves up wholesome American breakfast and lunch options. 

You’ll get to dine in a vintage lunch car that’s been a Lowell landmark since 1982. Enjoy hot coffee, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, scrambled eggs, BLTs, and more that will fill you up so you have the fuel you need for an afternoon of adventure.

Boating at Walden Pond

There’s no better time to go boating than early in the morning, when the waters are mirror flat and the air is still and peaceful. From April 1st to December 1st, the boat ramp at Walden Pond in Concord, MA is open automatically, so you can get in your morning boating. 

Kayaks, rowboats, and canoes are all welcome on the water. If you have time afterward, enjoy a picnic on the beach or go hiking along the trails through the woods to visit a replica of Henry David Thoreau’s cabin.

The Farm Market at Mill No. 5

The Farm Market at Mill No. 5 in Lowell, MA brings together local farmers, food producers, and consumers for a joyful celebration of food. Open from 10 am to 1 pm every Sunday, you can support local artisans and farms who spend their mornings as vendors at the market. 

The market is open rain, shine, or snow, so you won’t have to worry about your plans getting derailed by the weather. Pick up some artisanal cheeses, cookies, fresh eggs, locally-sourced jams, and more from the tight-knit community to take home or enjoy on the road.

Sunday Brunch at the Westford Regency

A favorite for families for over 25 years, Sunday Brunch at the Westford Regency Inn in Westford, MA is a must for visitors. Featuring an impressive array of chef prepared specialties, every member of the family is sure to find something to satisfy their appetite. 

Brunch is held every Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm and should be booked in advance. However, you don’t have to be staying at the Inn to indulge. Pile your plates high with cooked-to-order omelets and Belgium waffles, roast beef, turkey, and ham from the carving station, smoked salmon, pastries and desserts, and specialty mimosas and brunch cocktails. 

When you’re visiting Merrimack Valley, there’s plenty to do before noon. Book a brunch, bring your boat, visit local vendors, and prepare for an incredible morning of fun.
