Connecting wood post to concrete

I have prefab concrete front steps. I would like to add a 6x6 post and a railing. How would I attach the post so that it would be sturdy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Look for a concrete post connector. Since your concrete is pre-fab, you will need to use an epoxy method. You can the various connectors available here:

These are widely available at both Lowes and HD.

Good luck!
