Amherst — 7 nights

Amherst is a town in Hampshire County, Massachusetts, United States, in the Connecticut River valley. Get out of town with these interesting Amherst side-trips: Chesterfield Gorge (in Chesterfield), Look Memorial Park (in Northampton) and D.A.R. State Forest (in Goshen). There's lots more to do: browse the exhibits of Emily Dickinson Museum, explore the world behind art at Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, enjoy the scholastic atmosphere at Amherst College, and stroll through Manhan Rail Trail.
