Lived here most of my life and have always returned. The river is beyond incredible with fantastic fishing, boating and swimming. Bird watching too. Eagles to egrets.

Great restaurants, sports shops, antiquing, upscale up cycled goods, nature museum and trails, great children's playground with town run water feature, fish ladder, near highways of Route 2 and 91. Worth the visit.

When you visit new places you sometimes are predisposed to what you'll see and feel. I think you will be surprised many times over when you see Turners Falls. I recommend you start at the Discovery Center by the power canal, visit the bike path,...More

15 years ago, I would never advise anyone to visit this town. Most of the stores were boarded up, the houses off of the main drag were shabby, and drugs and crime were rampant. Things have settled down and progress has arrived to an extent....More

Four seasons, beautiful views, bicycle trails, locally owned businesses and close to the ground food. What more could you ask for!
