They have awesome artists scheduled for shows year round. The people are always friendly and the shops are unique. It is easy to park and walk. Don't miss the book stores that feature local writers.

This is a very charming village with lovely shops and a 25 store market place under one roof. Not many motels so don't go during major holidays or college graduations. Driving through the Berkshires is always a treat.

Historic Northampton has such a cool vibe. It’s a college town so there are many trendy restaurants (loads of vegan/veggie options), eclectic used book stores, environment political stickers and recycling bins everywhere, art stores and creativity all around.
