Map of Greater Amherst and Northampton AreaThe Greater Amherst and Northampton Area has become an increasingly popular destination for visitors as well as for people seeking to settle here.  Known as the “Five College Area,” it is home to Smith College, Hampshire College, Mt. Holyoke College, Hampshire College, Amherst College, the University of Massachusetts, and several community colleges.  Northampton has been described as one of America’s top ten small arts cities by national magazines.  It has also built a reputation as one of the best places in the country for a quality of life that embraces community, education, diversity and outdoor activities.  Whether you choose to live right in our bustling downtown or in one of the surrounding towns that nestle in the hills on both sides of the Connecticut River, Northampton is the heart of the “Pioneer Valley”.  For information on the other towns in our coverage area of Hampshire and Franklin Counties, we have included a brief description of each town.  They are listed in alphabetical order.
