I don't particularly think of Northampton as "historic" because it is always lively, always changing and evolving in a very pleasing and unpretentious way despite its obvious prosperity. The downtown business district is completely walkable. Main Street is flat and lined with tempting shops and restaurants. The side streets offer some real treasures as well but may be too hilly...

The combination of Smith College, great restaurants, and it's quirky vibe make Northampton a town to visit. You can comfortably walk around town and take in the art stores and old architecture. If people watching is your thing, you'll enjoy sitting in one of the sidewalk restaurants and taking in the local scene. If you feel like a bike ride,... More

It is always a fun time visiting Northampton. I love the mixture of architecture styles of the older homes. The downtown is nice, as well as manageable, with lots of nice shops, and eateries. It is so refreshing that there are no chain stores in Northampton! Thank you to whoever is responsible for that! Northampton is a town which encourages... More

Northampton, or NoHo as many locals call it, is a great little town with lots of shops and restaurants and a cute main street. You will find many local stores with unique clothes and crafts. It's very refreshing.

Northampton is a wonderful town rich in history and offers lots of great shops and restaurants. Been visiting Northampton for many years and while some things have changed for the most part it remains a place we truly enjoy visiting at least once a year. People watching is fun, the walking is easy and the Hotel Northampton is a fine... More

Visited hysteric Northampton last week--a two hour drive each way only to find parking difficult and almost everywhere metered for a max of 1 hour. So in order to "see the town", shop and have lunch, one would have to change parking spots 3 times. Our meter ran over and we were ticketed: $15. Not a happy experience for a... More

Been going to Northampton for YEARS. The diversity there is great and there is a homey feel to this city. Thornes 'mall', is a place i always like to stop at and poke around in. Sometimes you can find some trendy things in there. FACES is one of my all time fave stores...lots to look at in there for sure!... More

A group of dancers were performing in front of a Main St. church and the audience joined in. Faces is the most amazing an fun store. Herrell's for ice cream is a favorite. And the shop "Oh My" has very helpful staff. Also, the farmers' market introduced us to 2 delicious new foods--ground cherries and lion' s mane mushroom.
