“Great for pub crawls”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

There are at least 20 great pubs to visit within walking distance. Some pubs have over 20 beer taps featuring local microbrews and the usual suspects. Also several high quality restaurants to choose from. People watching is great fun in Northampton, especially if you like street musicians.

“small, cozy and friendly little museum”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Historic Northampton isn't large (4 or 5 good sized rooms, including a regularly changing exhibit space), but it has some gems. Admission is a modest charge, and you can easily spend an hour or two exploring the collection of historical items, photos and videos.

“NoHo, ''where the coffe is strong & the women are stonger''”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

There is so much one can say about this little corner of New England. It's Charming, diversified and much a mini So Ho. A college town with with amazing restaurants and fabulous shops as well galleries, it really has it all. Noho none to the locals is very much a an arts town with venue's such the Calven Theater and the Acadamy of Music to name a few. Let me not forget.... coffee!!! just sit back and enjoy

“Charm and Diversity”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Whenever we have friends visit from around the country--and the world--NoHo is a must. It is proof that a town that was floundering decades ago has turned around and become a center for diversity in every way. There more than enough restaurants to choose from as well as book stores and craft shop;, and history abounds if you look for it. Also, if you where a tie or sport a red Mohawk, no one will look at you as if you were odd. Think "multicultural." And, whatever you do, don't pass up the Hungry Ghost bakery for some of the best bread on the planet.
