Agawam has a balance of silence and bustle. It has the feel of a close-knit community normally found in a small town, but can also be very busy at times. This, to me, makes it a great place to live. Growing up I always thought I would move out of Agawam, however now that I have lived in another town for school, I have realized that I am most comfortable in Agawam, and have no plans of moving. The town is under development and I see great opportunity for my town in the future. One great example is Agawam's plans to use solar energy--keeping us current with modern technology!
