Northampton. Can't say enough about this place. I love their food. Small, family owned Moroccan restaurant with beautiful Moroccan pottery decorating the walls. Menu is huge, with soups, stews, salads, meat, fish, chicken, vegetarian, crepes, desserts. My go-to dish is the Mosaic Salad with Trout. Mm...

Parks & Nature
Terrific 300 degree view of the Pioneer Valley from a wrap around balcony attached to the former (1900's) Summit House hotel. Can hike up to the summit, or drive and park. Sometimes you can spot an eagle. Summit House also offers a summertime music series.

Lovely, quiet spot just down the road from us. Can walk the 1.6 level miles or take easy climb from parking to the top. Lovely (210 degree) views of Amherst area, including the University. Nice spot for a picnic lunch, watching the sunset, or just reading a book.

Beautiful greenhouses full of local and exotic plants. Amazing bulb show every April. From there, you can walk around the Smith College pond, the campus, or into downtown Northampton-just a hop, skip and a jump away.

Paved, mostly level bike/skate/walk/hike trail from Belchertown to Northampton and beyond. In wooded areas with streams, ponds, beaver dams, birds, and field views. Unwritten practice that bikers warn you before passing on your left. Amazing.

Beautiful in winter, but best in summer. Most popular swimming area around. Clean water, nice medium-sized beaches (separate one for folks with dogs), and people from around the world. Rare to hear a raised voice or disgruntled parent. It's kinda paradise... And did I mention it's free? Go early on hot days though, as parking is limited (or go around supper time).

Large historic village with reenactments, with buildings from colonial times, both businesses, school and homes. Animals, cider making, lumber milling, horse-drawn coach rides, and general store, among others. Need to be able to walk and be on your feet most of 2 hours. There are some horse drawn vehicles. Great gift shop, too.
