About Amherst, MA

Amherst is nestled amongst lush hillsides and mountains creating stunning views. It is characterized by its vibrant and copious agricultural landscape, providing the community with delicious produce at Saturday farmer’s markets on the common and also at a number of roadside stands. However, the main industry of Amherst has shifted from a farming community to one of education; it is home to the main campus of University of Massachusetts as well as the private colleges Amherst College and Hampshire College.

Downtown Amherst is a mix of culture, past and present, making it one of New England’s most unique and exciting destinations. Whether you’re looking for shopping, dining, or enjoying a park, Amherst has what you’re looking for.
