Hampshire County

Some things just go together – salt and pepper, Abbott and Costello, pickles and peanut butter (okay, maybe not). Hampshire County is another one of those perfect combos: city and country.

Hit the town in Northampton, Easthampton, Amherst, and South Hadley. Dress up fancy, go to dinner, and catch a show. Our humming downtowns are lively enough to make a city slicker feel at home.

Now slow things down. Amble through our charming towns and villages, where you might catch a glimpse of folks tapping maple trees in their own front yards and hear the birdsong of the Eastern meadowlark.

Then again, you’re as likely to see chickens roaming yards in Northampton as you are to hear an alt-rock group throttling the stage in a hilltown. We’re the best of both worlds – no matter your destination in Hampshire County.
