Destination guide

Join the revolution with a Northampton vacation rental

Famously liberal and unashamedly bohemian, the only thing more universal than the welcome in this vibrant college city is the quality of its arts, music, and culture scene. A Northampton vacation rental is the ideal opportunity to get stuck into some of that culture for yourself. From galleries to theaters and botanic gardens to museums, there's more than enough here to feed your inner culture vulture for weeks. Hike parks, rail trails, and nearby mountains, or just grab yourself a coffee in the handsome, historic downtown and watch the world go by.

Things to do

Turn back the clock to those college days

It might be a while since your own college days, but with a Northampton vacation rental you can always make believe. Take a visit to prestigious Smith College, which boasts not just an art museum but also its own botanic garden. And if that's whetted your appetite, then Northampton's art and culture scene only gets better. You'll find it's bursting with galleries, and the Dr Seuss works at Michelson Galleries are always a crowd-pleaser. When the sun goes down, you'll want to check out a performance at one of the city's theaters, including the Calvin Theater and the Academy of Music.


Never a dull day in Northampton

HIking and biking fanatics will want to make tracks for the the city's rail trails, while if you like your pleasures more culinary, a Northampton vacation rental offers the whole gamut of eating and drinking opportunities. Appropriately enough, given its intellectual vibe, it's big on cool little independent cafes, with quality roasts to keep the coffee snobs happy. Northampton's also renowned for the buzz about its many events and festivals, from the lively LGBT Pride parade in May, and the 'Django in June' jazz week, to the independent film festival in the fall, and the twice-yearly contemporary and fine arts festivals.


Fabulous fall in marvelous Massachusetts

What is it about college towns that makes you always picture them in fall, with the leaves turning rusty on the trees. Well, a Northampton vacation rental won't disappoint on that score, with fall being one of the most delicious times to visit. Try and get up into the nearby Holyoke mountains to make the most of the colors. Otherwise Northampton has a temperate climate, with four distinct seasons. Summers are hot without being roasting, and winters can get pretty icy. It's a bit wetter than average too, so expect a reasonable amount of rain in summer, and snow in the winter.

Natural features

Looking past the ivory towers

Together with nearby Amherst, Northampton forms a little enclave of lively college towns in Hampshire County. But look a little further afield and things start to get a lot more tranquil. Set in the upper part of the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts, the terrain soon gives way to fields and more traditional small towns, and then to the mountains. If that sounds like your kind of thing then make a beeline for the Holyoke Range. The dramatic geology and rare alpine plants of these mountains draw birdwatchers, backcountry skiers, and hikers galore.
