Nice town

We go to this town at least 2 times a year for the day or 1 night. Lots of small shops with good reasonable restaurants. Northampton is a quaint New England town.

We hadn't been here in a decade or so and came up for a relaxing weekend to shop and enjoy the restaurants. At every pay station for parking on Main street we were acosted by people begging.... How do you ignore people getting right in your face while you are putting change in the pay meters? It was sad, disturbing,... More

Plenty of little shops to explore on a very walkable Main Street area. There are parking all around with no fee after 6:00 as a shop owner took the time to come out to tell us. Even the Urban Outfitters is an interesting place to visit.

We enjoyed spending a week in Northampton area, visiting galleries, museums, colleges, and restaurants. I imagine the energy must be even better when students are in town. There was a pleasant experience which we hope to repeat,

Nice small stores with a few stand outs like the major art gallery. Other's limited in scope to local favorite stores. Nice theater next to a breakfast restaurant staplr. Good to combine with a Smith College visit.

Spent the day in the area-such a lovely area! Lucky for this main drag to be a college town. Not too busy this first week of July -actually perfect! Such a great variety of shops and restaurants -no one will be disappointed to visit the area. FYI -park in the garage for your best rates. The town does have parking... More

Overall we found the historic district to be very pretty, clean, and full of interesting businesses and restaurants. We truly appreciated to decided lack of chain stores and the architecture as nicely preserved. A great place to walk and people watch. Parking wasn't too bad either.

Northampton is a small city in western Massachusetts that is worth a visit. There are a few museums, a historical downtown, restaurants of every sort, and nature a few minutes away. A walk through Smith College that butts onto the Historic District is relaxing, even as the young women head to their next class.
