It is a wonderful town. It has a lot of history going back to the 13 colonies. Agawam is filled with wonderful people that come together in times of need. The school system is great and offers many different activities. Throughout the year you can go to Six Flags New England, which is located in Agawam, and have fun or go to the many different parks there are around town. Overall Agawam is an average town that just provides a friendly and homey feeling that anyone can enjoy!
Agawam is a small, tightly-knit community and is a great place to grow up. The small-town feel makes it especially good for families and those looking for camaraderie. It is also a very safe community, with very few major crimes each year. The only downside to Agawam is that the tightly-knit nature of the community can sometimes lead to animosity between citizens, but it should be fine as long as you stay away from gossip and politics.
I loved growing up in Agawam. Ever since I can remember I lived here and I've met many people here. Between the legendary "Big E" fair and the epic Six Flags New England park, Agawam has a lot to offer. My youth included playing sports with many different kids, and biking around town with my friends. My one regret is that the High School is not in great condition, and could use new building. There aren't many things to do for young adults at night either, but other than that, Agawam is a great place to raise a family.
