Why Western Mass?
Close to it all.
Springfield’s location makes all of New England and New York easily accessible. Get to Boston in fewer than two hours, New York City in under three, and the Berkshires and Vermont in just one.
Urban culture, Western Mass quality of life.
Found a gap-closing school by day and enjoy the hills, woods, and culture of the Pioneer Valley by night and weekend. Looking for a dynamic city full of food, music, and culture but without the hassle? Springfield and Northampton are great options. Love to run, hike, bike, and ski? Western Mass has it all, and Vermont is just an hour away.
Great housing, affordable prices.
A classic New England Victorian, a renovated warehouse loft, a downtown condo, or a farmhouse in the woods are all possible in Springfield or within a 20 minute commute of downtown, and all are more affordable than in big cities. Springfield is a small city experiencing a renaissance, Northampton and Amherst are funky college towns, Longmeadow and Enfield are quiet suburbs just a short commute away, and Hartford is just down the highway.
