Western Mass is filled with lots of little gems, scattered across three counties, waiting for you to find them. That’s the beauty of living in a region that is wonderfully diverse—in its terrain, its natural resources, its communities, and its people. This crazy quilt of a region is waiting for you and your contributions. As you go out and about, exploring up and down the Connecticut River Valley, you are going to find places none of the rest of us know about.

Here’s your chance to share. What are your favorite Western Mass gems?
