Amherst: Attractions and more...

The easiest and safest way to get around the town is the Norwottock Rail Trail, which is nearly 13 km long and also connects the bordering towns of Northampton and Hadley.

Be introduced to the world of art at the Amherst Cinema Arts Centre and the Umass Fine Art Centre, watch a live music show at the Mullins Centre, or spend a relaxing evening under the Massachusetts sky, watching an enchanting theatrical play at the Hampshire Shakespeare Company.

Golf enthusiasts will love the 9-hole Cherry Hill Golf Course with its wildlife, small lakes and a beautiful view of the Berkshire Hills from the top. Or, if you want to feel young at heart again, join the college crowd at Rao’s Coffee or the Loose Goose Cafe. The Harp is a popular recommendation for Irish drinks.

Don’t forget to tour the Horse Caves near the base of Mt Norwottuck, and the Dickinson Homestead, the home of the legendary poet Emily Dickinson which is now converted into a museum.
