About the Region

Western Massachusetts is a well-kept secret. At the intersection of the Mass Pike and Interstate 91, Springfield is just 30 minutes north of Hartford, 90 miles west of Boston and 90 minutes from Albany.

There is no better time to be in Springfield, Massachusetts. The city is experiencing a major rebirth as the new MGM casino has brought life back to downtown. Entertainment, dining, arts and culture – Springfield has it all wrapped into an intimate urban Mecca. Whether it is music flowing from the jazz festival, voices carrying from one of the weekly beer gardens, crowds cheering after a Thunderbirds goal or the laughter rolling out of the comedy club, the social scene in Springfield is booming and it is energizing to be a part of this growth.

Just twenty minutes north of Springfield, our Hadley office is immersed in a community of young professionals and has become a hot spot for new and expanding businesses. Whether it is the 114-mile Metacomet-Monadnock Trail, the bordering Connecticut and Deerfield Rivers, an abundance of farmer’s markets and local produce, or local ski areas – there are plenty of activities to appreciate the serene landscapes and beauty of the area.

Local communities include cities and small towns where the landscape ranges from rolling mountains to plush valleys to flowing rivers. The area is well-known for prestigious academic institutions, premium health care systems, farming communities and an abundance of outdoor activities. Some local favorites include Tanglewood, Historic Deerfield, Bridge of Flowers and the Springfield Museums.
