Northampton, Massachusetts, the little "city-lette" next door to Amherst, the town where I grew up and where my parents live, is highlighted today in Design*Sponge's City Guide feature. Yay for the adorable, lovely, quaint, and picturesque Pioneer Valley of Western Mass! Western Mass is a really wonderful part of the country. It was a great place to grow up, and it's a great place to visit. If you've never been, there's TONS to do and see - and every time of year is fantastic in its own special way. There's nature, there's shopping, there's great food, there's a beautiful bike trail, and more and more and more. And all wrapped up in a perfect little old New England package. Can't be beat. It would make a great getaway weekend destination... I'm just throwing that out there, in case you're looking for one! Anyway, you should just go ahead and check it out!
