Amherst is in Springfield. It makes up part of an important city that is home to 150,000 residents. Amherst is situated 19 miles (31 kilometers) from Springfield’s central business district. If you are arriving by air, Amherst is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) away from Bradley International Airport.

Amherst is a popular place to head to in Springfield as a large number of the area’s star attractions are within easy driving distance. Among the most popular attractions here are the fabulous Emily Dickinson Museum and the fantastic Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Also, well worth the effort are the Porter Phelps Huntington Museum and the Hadley Farm Museum.

There are many beautiful natural destinations here so don’t miss the chance to get outdoors. The conservation reserves such as the Holyoke Heritage State Park in Holyoke and Mount Norwottuck, show visitors the animals and plants that flourish in the local area.

Sports lovers should book tickets for Mullins Center to see the UMass Minutemen in action. On game days follow the procession of maroon and white, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join local college basketball lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a post-game drink.

When you’re ready to relax after a long day exploring the charming streets of Amherst, check in to one of the area's many accommodation options. The Howard Johnson Amherst Hadley, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites AMHERST-HADLEY, MA and the Econo Lodge, Hadley are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
