Springfield is a hubbub of activity with museums, shows, and parks for the enjoyment of the entire family. It is also just a hop skip and a jump away from about a dozen colleges and smaller scenic towns with just a little less chaos than the big city. All in all an exciting place to visit and the perfect location for business or pleasure.

When the weather starts getting colder this area is just heating up. This region is filled with beautiful scenic rural drives both in the fall and winter. New England celebrates fall foliage season like no other place in the world. Experience this dazzling display of color in our area against country and mountainous backdrops by taking a mid-to-late fall drive or get out there for a walk along the most famous country lanes of the Mohawk Trail. These trails have the most impressive foliage of all New England.
In the winter guests can enjoy the thrill of ice climbing or give snowshoeing a try. In the nearby Berkshires there are a wide range of beginner ski trails and helpful instructional courses. If you are not a skier there are plenty of attractions for you. The attractions minutes from our home include Basketball Hall of Fame, Yankee Candle Village, the Dr. Seuss National Memorial at the Springfield Museums, and Six Flags New England. Other key stops include The Zoo in Forest Park, the Volleyball Hall of Fame, Lupa Zoo, Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory and Gardens, The Big E and Bright Nights at Forest Park.
Local cultural highlights include the twice-yearly Paradise City Arts Festival, the Brimfield Outdoor Antique Shows (the largest gatherings of antique and collectibles dealers in the world), and the Old Deerfield Craft Fair, which takes place four times annually.No matter what your interests, Western Massachusetts is where memories are made—all throughout the year.
