South Hadley Reviews

38 reviews
All Categories
South Hadley is a great place to reside. It is a small town and the community is close knit. We value God, Family and Country and are there to help one another in any situation. Giving and helping those in need is what this town is about and living here has taught me to value all life. Because South Hadley has many farms our work ethic is important to us and what a better way to contribute to the world than through their stomachs. Work hard and play even harder is why I love living here and I would not change that for the world.
Review South Hadley
This small town is very tight knit and welcoming community. I lived in South Hadley for my entire childhood and it was a beautiful place to live! McCrays farm was one of my favorite places to visit in the summer to get ice cream and pet the animals!
A relatively nice, suburban area. I've lived here my whole life! Not much to do in town, but lots of stuff within a half hour or so!
