Take a nice staycation right here in Concord

On Monday, start the week off with a round at Beaver Meadow Golf Course. If you don’t have time for a full go-round, you can just get a bucket of balls to launch at the driving range. You can even borrow a driver from the pro shop if you don’t have one. Go to beavermeadowgolfcourse.com or call 228-8954 for more info. (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

Then, after golf (or before, depending on how you want to plan your day), you can head over to the Penacook Village Farmers Market at 11 Penacook St. in Penacook. The market is held every Monday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. rain or shine until Aug. 29. (Pictured is the Concord Farmers Market, held on Saturdays.) (MEGAN MARSHALL / For the Insider)

On Saturday, get up early and get a nice, long day of fishing in. You can go to the Merrimack River (pictured) or try one of the many ponds around Concord. Just make sure you have your license with you -- you can get one at most places that sell fishing supplies. (JON BODELL / Insider staff)
