There are ten different garden types and a greenhouse in this Botanic Garden.
My wife and I visited the Botanic Garden of Smith College in Northampton, Connecticut, during a tour of New England. It is located on the campus of Smith College and because it is quite small, is quite easy to miss. Look for the large conservatories.
Entry is free. The Gardens consists of a fine selection of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. However, the majority of the garden is under glass with an excellent collection of warm-weather plants in a set of historic conservatories. There are also some interesting murals showing the development of the area from pre-Cambrian times.
Definitely worth a visit if you are in Northampton.

So sweet. Great setting. Warm with lots of light. On a lake. And a college campus. They serve a huge Sunday brunch once a month during the school year. They are usually holiday themed. Everything is delicious!

I was first struck but the excellent road conditions throughout the reservation. Wish all Mass roads were so fine. Outstanding views of the Pioneer Valley abound in this destination. Drove in from the East Hampton entrance and ended up in Northampton. Well worth the trip.

I love climbing up to the summit of Mt. Holyoke on a clear day and taking in the views of the Valley below. On a clear day you can even see Vermont. Unfortunately the Summit House is closed for the foreseeable future but the wonderful rocking chairs on the porch remain.

So much freakin fun!!!!! I went with five girl friends, only myself and one other have tried an escape room before. We were kind of nervous about us working as a team but the direction of the staff and clues helped us get started. The game we played (can't release the top secret info about the game) was very interactive, challenging, and fun. They are opening a wizard themed one which I am looking forward to and have a cafe to grab some munchies (and to celebrate victory or being so close). I highly recommend coming here to play one whether with family, friends, or other type of loved ones! It is also located in an old mill which adds to the mystery. The staff was amazing and really made you get into the game (ps I am a sore loser, didnt get to escape, and still want to go back!!).

This museum features work by a number of art greats.
My husband and I visited the Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, Mass. on Sunday, August 6th. It is worth visiting. The museum has four full floors of a very good selection of various types of art, including American, European, African, Asian, Ancient World and Modern. The art work on display is of high quality and includes pieces by Degas, Monet, Picasso, Whistler and Saint-Gauden. All the floors in the museum are organized by time period and have a very good lay-out with nicely done write-ups depicting the art on display. The special exhibit, ‘Leisure and Luxury in the Age of Nero, the Villas of Oplontis Near Pompeii’, depicts two Roman archaeological sites in the ancient town of Oplontis and has many interesting well preserved objects contained within it. This was a very impressive and well done exhibit. Visiting this museum was a very interesting experience and was worth the trip. Even the restrooms on the lower level have been designed with nice art work. The museum is located within Northampton, a very nice town to drive-through and perhaps visit with many shops and restaurants outlining its streets.

Couldn’t be happier with our decision to add this to our weekend itinerary. Our four year old loved it- easily could spend 3 hours here. Every bit of space is used smartly and there is something for everyone. The climbing area is unlike anything I’ve seen at a children’s museum and the magnetic wall kept us occupied for nearly an hour. Loved the authentic touches in the paramedic and fire truck areas. Just fantastic.

Take the kids to the farm! They will love seeing and feeding a variety of animals from fancy chickens to rabbits to llamas. Then head into the creamery for breakfast of waffles with syrup made locally, omelets, home fries and more. For lunch: hot dogs, sandwiches, soups (and more). Follow that up with McCray's homemade ice cream (a bit expensive but good!) From there head to the mini golf course $6 or less according to age. Falls brings haunted hayrides. Monday through Friday special $10 for hot dog, drink and small ice cream and a game of golf.
Petting zoo open anytime. Golf open the same times as the creamery Monday through Friday 9-3, weekends 9-5. Check their website for more events

Ten-mile bike path on the old tracks of the Boston and Maine railroad.
I had an excellent ride from Northhampton to Belchertown. The trail spans 11 miles, and there are plenty of great views of the Connecticut River, fields, swamps, towns and distant mountains. Plenty of access point along the trial with parking, benches scattered the length of the trai,l and porte-potties, too. Well maintained, mostly shaded, and flat.

The Book Center’s 37,000-square-foot heymish-modern building in Amherst, MA, is a lebedike velt – a lively world – featuring an open Yiddish book repository, theatres, art galleries, museum exhibitions about Yiddish language and culture, and programs in literature, music, art, film, and theater
This is the most amazing museum, really. A beautiful and innovative architecture by any standard that was built to protect and display the world's largest collection of Yiddish works, woven around the history of their times. An amazing experience for anyone of any religion and especially in the current xenophobic political administration and climate, important to be reminded of protecting our diverse cultures and importance of inclusiveness.
