Love this town. Quintessential college town which means coffee shops, book stores, exotic food venues, street buskers and quirky stores. With the 1960's vibe Boomers can relive their glory days. You can find what you want here from vintage tie-die to lobster ice cream. Great walking area. We try to stop by once a year when traveling to see family... More

Thus us such a nice college town. It has a nice urban feel to it for a small town. Lit's of good eateries and local shops. Good to see such a vibrant Main Street that hasn't been affected by big box stores.

Stayed for a night here, what a fun town. Dinner at Spoleto, ice cream at Herrel's. Both great. So many fun stores and coffee shops, don't miss thornes market or Faces across the street. The people are quirky and nice, the really they call it Pleasant valley.

Northampton's downtown has a great vibe. Chock full of college students from all the area universities, it's a laid back destination. Love all the restaurants and shopping - breweries, coffee shops, Ten Thousand Villages, East Heaven (hot tubs), A2Z- amazing, amazing toy store for the young and old at heart, and get to Faces before they close!

Whether you are in the mood for Italian, a good steak, or just want to hang out and have a drink there is something for everyone in Northampton. After a good meal walk off some of the calories by visiting the wide array of boutique shops.

I actually visited Historic Northampton for a Smith College class in the fall of 2011, and was impressed with all that was there, and the knowledge of the woman who answered our questions.

I traveled up to Northampton from Connecticut for my birthday and it was the perfect daytrip. There were lots of cute shops for every price range. You'll also find lots of great cafes and restaurants in the downtown area. You can't go wrong by visiting the town for either a daytrip or for a couple days.
